1st Annual Cookie Swap!

This past Saturday my life long friend Sarah and I hosted our very first Christmas Cookie Swap!  We had a blast!!  We vowed we would definitely be doing this every year.  I made recipe books with all the cookie recipes from the party and will be sharing them with you!!  Here are a few pictures of the Cookie Swap!

Everyone, meet Sarah!  She is also mom to Princess Bella!

Details of the cookie swap:
  • It was a cookie swap and ornament exchange
  • Everyone was asked to bring 7 dozen cookies: 6 dozen to swap and 1 dozen for sampling
  • Each person ended up with half a dozen of each cookie at least
  • Menu included: chicken salad (store bought), egg salad, tortellini, brie in puff pastry, several puff pastry appetizers, and much more!
  • Our signature drink was a Cranberry Cocktail: cranberry cocktail juice with champagne, yum!

  1. What a fun party. My friends and I were doing that in Kansas (we moved to Utah in June). I will really miss that this year. We do the ornaments as a white elephant and everyone tries to take the best one from the others, or they can just open a new one. So fun.


Hi there! Let me know what you think... I'd love to hear from you!
