Christmas Cookie Exchange

Obviously, I like to bake.  But around the holidays there are so many other things to do!  So I understand that whipping up batches of Christmas cookies is not only time consuming, but can be overwhelming.  That’s why I love the idea hosting a Christmas Cookie Exchange.  It’s a great excuse to get together with your girlfriends.  And when the party is over, you’ll have a nice selection of cookies to take home with you.

Here’s how it works.  Each guest brings one type of cookie, then you swap!  Ask everyone to bring one dozen cookies per attendee, plus one extra to eat during the party.  As the hostess, you’ll supply a large table to lay out the goods, and be sure to keep the milk and coffee flowing.  You can find a detailed checklist to help plan your cookie exchange on Real Simple.  Now, for some cookie recipes to get you started:

Are you hosting a holiday cookie swap of your own?  Or are you attending one as a guest?  Tell us, what kind of cookies will you be baking?
