Cookie Exchange 2012
We have started a tradition of having a cookie exchange every year. It's limited to about 6 groups, but we all leave with a ton of cookies. Literally, you could fill a small tote with all of the cookies!
Normally I serve a pasta lunch with more desserts and we have a nice afternoon.
Here are the rules:
Cookies must be home made. No store bought or refrigerated dough cookies!Fudge and candies are acceptable.
Try to make 3 (or more) varieties of cookies. Use your judgment for how many pieces to bring for items other than cookies.
Last year everyone brought their cookies pre-packaged. This year, for the most part, we decided on a "grab and go."
Although it is more work, having three varieties really seems to work out. It really only turns out to be about one batch per type. It normally turns out to be 6 cookies per type per group.
