Cookie Swap!

The holidays are in full swing! Are you looking for a fun way to celebrate during this time of year?

Have a good ‘ole impromptu throw down cookie swap. Cookie swaps are fun, yummy, and a sure winner for a holiday gathering. Most people make up their own rules for cookie swaps, but here is a guideline you might like to follow:

If you are organizing the cookie swap, you will probably end up as the host for this event. Make sure that you have a table big enough to hold the plates of cookies that your guests will be bringing. Most of the guests may be planning on taking the cookies home, so you'll want to serve some refreshments. You can serve something light to nibble on such as cheese and crackers or hummus and pita.

Send out an evite (www.evite.com) or make calls to let people know when and where the cookie swap will take place. Tell everyone that they must make homemade cookies, let them know how many cookies to make. You might also want to tell your guests to bring copies of the recipes for the cookies that they make. Along with the cookies, your guests can swap their recipes. Get some tins or plastic containers for the guests to put cookies to take home. Now, you are on your way to having a delicious event that will be talked about for years.

Until next time,

This is actually what I'm planning on doing for the holidays. Well, not the swap, but I'm giving cookies for the holidays. I love to cook and I can't buy everyone something this year. This is much easier because everyone is getting the same thing. Plus, everyone loves cookies!!
