Holiday Cookie Exchange Tradition

    One of my favorite things to do is attend a cookie exchange.  I love the variety and then I box up some of the cookies that ones that didn't HAVE to go to my stomach for tasting and share with friends and family.

    Anyone have a similar event?

    What do you like about the event?  For me, I see these people once a year - they are 60 minutes away from where I live.

    Please share.

      I haven't done that in a long time.  I like sugar cookies with vanilla icing.

    I had planned to write a Hub about this, but never got it done.  I have only participated in a few cookie exchanges, and I thought they were so much fun! 

    I think it would be a wonderful way to share the spirit of the season to have a cookie exchange where many or most of the cookies ended up going to a Women's Shelter - since the women likely would not be able to make Christmas cookies on their own and may have children with them.

    Since we moved, no cookie exchange this year.  But, I am making Christmas cookie & candy packages for neighbors.

    I participated in my first ever cookie exchange with my fiance and our friends. Each participant makes 6 cookies for every participant.  I made chocolate dipped thumbprint cookies filled with cherry halves.  My first time trying that recipe and they turned out pretty good.
