Christmas Cookie Swap

It's that time of year again! Our annual Christmas Cookie & Ornament Swap will be on December 22nd at Deb's house.

What is a cookie swap?

Traditionally the way we do it is that a host will plan and coordinate a cookie swap party and then host a get-together, so everyone can trade packs of cookies. In some cases, everyone brings extra cookies for the swap, and everyone gets to sample the cookies at the swap/party. The host has the option to provide food & drinks for the swap. It can be whatever you have time for!

During our cookie party we also do an exchange of Christmas ornaments with each other. It adds a very nice touch to our gathering and each year we get to hang up or ornaments that we have received from each other over the years.

This is a great way to get a nice variety of cookies without doing all the baking yourself! Check out these places for ideas:
