Quite possibly you could have 65 new recipes to add to your rotation. I have some new ones I am excited to try out. I find the more I bake the less I want to eat it. Crazy, I know!
Having a large family was not very conducive for many cookie exchanges. We always seemed to eat the cookies before we could get them traded. I also have a few people in my family that will not eat anything from “strangers.” So I started doing some research on this topic. I found there are many websites for the professional cookie exchange enthusiast. Cookieexchange.com is one of these sites. Robin started her exchanges in 1989. I thought I would pass on some of her suggestions. Make your cookie exchange a women’s only event. Do not eat the cookies during the exchange. Serve
hors d’oeuvres and adult beverages. That seems pretty simple.
I hope you enjoy exchanging cookies as much as I have enjoyed exchanging recipes.
Thank you to Sherri Falls and the other designers for inviting me along.
Have a wonderful holiday and as the song goes, “Don’t get caught under the mistletoe
with anyone else but _____ (you can fill in the blank here).”

We have still have ornaments the kids (now 26 & 29) made in Kindergarten and first grade on the tree. Some have school pictures on them – these are priceless to us! Thank you for the recipe and for sharing about your ornaments and tree.
