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.
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.

I would like to hear your ideas in regards to changing the name of the "Christmas" season to something more appropriate so as to lose the concept of gaining converts and power in the name of Jesus.Perhaps, we should go back to the name, "Yule"

How long do homemade cookies stay fresh?I am doing my Christmas baking. Will my cookies be fresh still on Dec 25 (8 days from now) or should I freeze them?
