How to Host a Cookie Exchange

Next time you have a holiday gift to give, why not host a cookie exchange? Your friends can bake their favorite recipes to trade with the group—and you'll all walk away with a homemade treat to share.

Step 1:

Invite family, friends and cookie connoisseurs over for a cookie exchange. Make it clear that each person is to bake and bring only one type of cookie to share with each member of the party.

Step 2:

When your guests RSVP, have them let you know what kind of cookies they'll be bringing (so there aren't any duplicates) or assign them a cookie recipe to bake and bring.

Step 3:

Make sure each guest brings an empty container so that they can easily take their treats home.

Step 4:

Depending on how many people attend, each guest should bring either a dozen or half a dozen cookies for each member of the party.

Step 5:

Don't forget to ask everyone to bring copies of their cookie recipes to share—once the tasting ends, the recipe swapping always begins!
