Does anyone have the cookie plates and want to post where they are? It would be interesting. They are no longer tracked on the web site since it changed to the new site. I had heard that a few people

Kelly, I lost track of the plate I mailed out to my daughter a few years ago.  At that time, she had just moved to AZ.  Not sure where it went from there.  It was a fun idea.

I would like to be able to track plates I have taken to places. Wink  But I finally gave up & just put them on a disposable plate.

Pat - immediately after Christmas I buy stacks of the tin (?) and some plastic plates and keep them for Christmas the next year.
During the year I happily use those heavy duty paper plates/platters.
If I need a larger container I use the alumn. disposable pans.

In Response to Re: Tracking cookie plates.:
nikki p thanks for the offer but i can explain it maybe like this on the old site they had a section for swapped recipes where you could enter the name of a recipe and it would come up---------------------also you could enter your name and all of the "swapped recipes" that you had entered came up-------------also the name of any other baker and their recipes also would show up they tell me to enter --------"community classics"----and all of the swapped recipes will be there---------but when i do that a get a little over 500 entries in no kind of order ---you just have to wade through them- and i just don't believe that there are not many thousands of recipes entered from before why bother to enter any now because as far as i can determine there is no way to search for these either---------------that's why so many people are posting recipes repeatedly in this forum----------

I know the previous way was easier to search for specific things.  I loved to put in  an item and search recipes that called for that particular ingredient. 
I was wondering if there was a specific recipe that you were looking for that I/we could help you find.  I know when I have searched for a recipe I have to put in the Name exactly the way it was entered or it does not come up.  I thought I had "lost" recipes that way until I re worded the recipe title. 
So if there is anything I can help you look for let me know I can spend a bit of time looking for you. 
I also found that some of the recipes I had saved from the "old site" were made "private" by the person that had contributed it and were no longer available.

A few years ago there was a cookie plate that you could order from Nestle. They no longer have them. You made cookie and passed it on or sent it to some one and had them pass it on. You tracked it on the old web site to see where your plate ended up or how far it traveled. I have seen a few people still asking about them and was just wondering if any one still follows them. It was a lot of fun.

You just put your information on the bottomof the plate and refer people to this section of the web site. Have them leave a comment about the plate.

Thanks for the information. I had never heard of tracking cookies.

Never heard of it, but it sounds like you are describing a "FLAT STANLEY" kind of thing.

I had never heard of tracking cookie plates, so it is with great interest that I read all the posts on this subject.
This sounds like it would have been a fun thing to do and I am a little disappointed to see that this is no longer offered by Nestle. 
Maybe if there was enough interested expressed, Nestle might consider bringing it back.

Seems unfortunate that some of the things from the old website never made the change-over.  Personally I usually buy very inexpensive or disposable plates to give away cookies or cakes.  Although I have a few times bought "special" plates for this, it's just easier if noone has to worry about making sure to return a plate.

Yes H.M., you are correct when saying it is easier when no one has to worry about returning a plate.
As a school teacher, I've seen this happen at too many events, so I wised up.  What I have done a few times in the past is picked up an odd plate/bowl here or there I've seen at Goodwill.  If it comes back, fine, if not, that's okay too as I've not lost my good dishes.
