If you were looking for information regarding becoming a part of the Cookie Brigade for PAX East 2015 or you're just curious about what we're all about then you're in the right place. We're gearing up for PAX East 2015 and looking forward to trying to smash last East's fundraising total of $19,000!

If you're not already registered on the Cookie Brigade website please do so ASAP!

WHO WE ARE:

The Cookie Brigade is a ragtag group of Penny Arcade Forumers who have assembled since PAX 2007 to provide our fellow gamers with delicious baked goods! Cookies are baked by forumers, brought and shipped from afar by forumers, and distributed by forumers!

The Cookie Brigade does not sell cookies. We give cookies away for free.

Brigadiers also accept donations to Child's Play, which are entirely voluntary and greatly appreciated!

And it's very convenient to get a cookie and give a donation at the same time.

Starting in 2007, the Cookie Brigade began a mission to give these cookies in exchange for donations to Child's Play, the charity started by Mike and Jerry that provides entertainment to kids in children's hospitals. Since starting on this mission, the Cookie Brigade has raised over $88,000 mostly by the handing out of cookies and the reception of donations from the incredible, amazing, and generous PAX community! In 2014 alone we've raised over $46,000 for Child's Play! Woooooot! Thank you everyone for your generous donations; you have helped an awesome cause!


WHERE CAN I FIND OUT MORE?

I WANT TO HELP IN THE BRIGADE!


If you're interested in
  • Baking delicious cookies
  • Distributing to people during PAX
  • Helping organize cookies and distributors

We can definitely use your help! Sign up at our website, http://cookiebrigade.org if you wish to participate in the organizing, baking, and/or distributing!

An important note: due to certain external pressures on the Brigade we have to keep some of our more sensitive planning operations private. If you sign up on the Cookie Brigade website you will have access to our public forums but will need to submit an application to through the site to become a brigadier. Thank you for your understanding!


BASIC BRIGADE GUIDELINES

  • We give out cookies, we do not sell cookies! We do happily pass donations along to Child's Play, so feel free to give us donations if you want.
  • Keep it PG and family friendly. We love to give cookies out to kids and as such we ask all brigadiers to remain family friendly with their cookies (sorry no dickerdoodles) and distributing activities!
  • Have fun and enjoy PAX!

    I think I get more excited about Cookie Brigade than I do PAX itself..

    This will be my third year as a distributor. I can't wait to see you all again!

    Contemplating baking some cookies this year too...

    I'm interested in helping out for a good cause, is there a a cut off date punzie? Obviously the sooner we sign up the better, but don't want to commit if my schedule isn't 100% free around that time (either before or after).

    Nope, no real cut off date. If you apply the week of pax, you might not get approved before pax just because we're all running around like crazy then, but it'll still get you in for the next pax :)

    And just because you aren't attending a pax, doesn't mean you can't contribute. Bakers can always ship cookies to a local!

    Well, looks like Punzie Funzies need a Reese cup version.

    I forget which pax it was, but I did do a small number of funzies with Reese's in them. The problem is that Reese's cost more than Oreos. And the mini Reese's that you can get a bunch per bag are just too tall. I can look for a big bag though and make a small batch.

    ALL OF THEM

    Seriously though, however many you can handle. We always need more cookies.

    You have me for several dozen egg-free cookies again this year, either cinnamon chip if I can find enough cinnamon chips, or chocolate chip if not!

    I'm in!

    I don't bake very often (seriously, is there a PAX Burrito Brigade?) but I've got an awesome recipe for vegan trashcan cookies that I've wanted to try out.

    "Trash can" cookies? Well color me intrigued.

  • randy_wreckedrandy_wrecked Gunslinger Harrisburg, PARegistered User regular
    Yeah! "Trashcan" in the sense that you throw all kinds of stuff into it: oatmeal, potato chips, pretzels, chocolate chips, coffee, etc.

    I think it was me? I know i did it two years ago and don't remember if i did it again for pax last year. The bar crawl had a small batch of green tea ones.i still don't know if they went over well or not.


    This is in reference to mochi. I made several flavors one year, green tea, original, strawberry, orange, and coffee. Maybe one other flavor.

    Last year someone made mochi DURING PAX and bought it to us, freshly made, still in the pan, Sunday morning. I feel really bad that I don't remember the girl's name.

    Heya folks.

    We're looking for a kind Toronto-area PAXer to do us a favor. Cakescove.com has offered to make us some of their beautiful delights to give out at East. However, shipping from Canada to the US will be expensive, time-consuming, and possibly harmful to the cookies/candies. If anyone is coming from there (or passing through) and willing to pick them up and deliver them to PAX for us, please let me know!

    HI3789R.png
  • punziepunzie Cookie Pimp Registered User regular
    I hope the PAXers are ready for some cookies!
    The first (and easiest) place to find us will be at the Westin game night in Thursday. We'll have a spot right next to the game night check in table. During pax, follow our twitter (@cookie_brigade) to see where we are and get pics of cookies and PAXers being awesome. You can also tweet at us (mention that account or use #cookiebrigade) to request cookies and we'll try to send someone to you.

    I'm about to go retweet pics of all the deliciousness out bakers have been creating. Again, @cookie_brigade.

    See you in a couple days!

    Yesssss we have shinies for you. We only have 100 of the year pins for this year so you have to really impress a brigadier to get one.

    Whoever made the GF/Vegan banana peanut butter cookies, were there seriously only 3 ingredients? (banana, peanut butter, sugar)
    If so, it's amazing how cookie-like they turned out!

  • punziepunzie Cookie Pimp Registered User regular
    @Brew78 yes, just 3 ingredients. You can see that one and other recipes on our site http://www.cookiebrigade.org/forum/index.php?board=32.0


    We raised over $21,000 this weekend. Thank you so much to everyone for helping make that happen. We love being able to support Child's Play this way!
