Cookie Swap or Exchange

Here's the SCOOP on how to
have a delightful Cookie Swap or Cookie Exchange with your friends, family,
or community group!
* * *
* Decide how many guests you're
going to invite and pick a non-weekend day or evening to have your Cookie
Exchange - so it won't interfere with family weekends or office parties.
Choose a location that will be decorated
for the holidays if possible.
how many people will be able to attend and let everyone know how many cookies
they need to make. Everyone will need to bring one dozen cookies to share
at the Exchange and another dozen cookies for each person attending. For
example, if 8 people will be attending each person will need to bring 9 dozen
cookies. (That's 9 dozen cookies from one recipe.)
* Ask everyone to bake their
family's favorite cookie and try to make sure there will be no duplicated
recipes for the Cookie Exchange. The more variety you have the more fun it
will be! If you have a lot of people who are interested in participating
in a Cookie Exchange (say, more than 8-10), you might consider holding two or
three events instead of one to keep the groups small.
* Cookies to be exchanged should
be wrapped well; placed either on plastic plates with saran wrap or in
inexpensive disposable containers that are airtight.
* Attaching a copy of the cookie
recipe with each dozen is always a nice touch, be sure everyone includes their
name and any information about where the recipe is from, how it originated or at
least a few words about how much their family enjoys the cookies.
* During the Cookie Exchange
serve warm beverages such as coffee, hot cocoa, hot apple cider or herbal teas
in pretty cups.
And most of all, enjoy this fun
time with your friends!
