Holiday Cookie Swap

Homemade cookies are one of the highlights of the holiday season.  That, and spending time with friends.  So why not combine both by hosting a cookie swap party? You’ll save time by joining baking forces and everyone will leave with ready-to-go gifts.

The basic idea is that each person brings a large quantity of one cookie.  The cookies are divided among all guests, who can use this time to wrap their share in pretty packages.  You’ll love how fun efficiency can be.
