Is there anything better than gathering with sweet girlfriends for a sugar overload? Nope.
A few weekends ago, I hosted a Christmas Cookie Exchange Party - complete with a hot chocolate bar and perhaps some cider spiked with dutch caramel vodka. It's nights like these that I really miss some occasional booze. ;)
Everyone brought 2 dozen cookies and you could pick which 2 dozen you left with and/or ate. The only rule was no sugar cookies and no chocolate chip cookies. I may or may not have had more than a couple of the andes mint chocolate cookies ((for the baby, of course)). Guests put their recipe in front of the cookies they brought and you could copy the recipes you wanted.
It was super laid back and festive, I loved spending time with friends over Christmas music and celebrating
Johnny Manziel's Heisman win the holidays. We had everything from french macarons to snowball cookies, classic Christmas flavors to gourmet family recipes, baklava to divinity. SO MUCH GOODNESS!
Have you ever been to a cookie exchange? What's your go-to recipe?
