Host a Holiday Cookie Exchange Party
Baking holiday cookies is a time-honored tradition for many families. Unfortunately, It can also be a time-consuming chore to bake enough varieties for your holiday cookie trays. The solution? Host a holiday cookie exchange party!
Here’s how it works:
Invite friends who also enjoy holiday baking to bring a large batch of one type of cookie to the party (a dozen cookies for each attendee, plus a dozen for guests to enjoy). This gives everyone the desired variety for their holiday parties (yet only requires baking one recipe) and the host has instant refreshments to serve to guests!
Have participants bring copies of their recipe to share, and remind them to bring containers for transporting their cookies home.
Prepare a large table spread with a decorative cloth to display the cookies.
Play seasonal music and serve at least one holiday beverage such as egg nog or hot mulled cider along with coffee, tea, juices and, of course, milk!
