My best friend Tina and I hosted our very first cookie exchange this December.
It was alot fun. I was hoping you could post a few of our photos. Tina and
I are in the cookie aprons. I have to say that this cookies exchange allowed
for family to come together as well as friends.
Tina's Mom and Dad drove from Texas to be with everyone for Christmas. Also
Tina's sister drove an hour and a half to join in the fun. (They are in the
group shot) My brother and Tina's husband Ron were our judges. They did an
awesome job sampling alot of cookies!
Our first prize winner for best tasting cookie went to Jessica who made the
white chocolate cherry chunkies. My Mom embroidered a beautiful apron for
the first prize winner. We only played one game which was the don't say cookie
game. Next year we will be even better in the game department. We decided
next year we will implement candy into our exchange.
We had a christmas tree decorated with cookie cutters and underneath were
gifts for all, that consisted of goody bags with the recipe's from the cookie's
brought, along with two ornaments (it was a cookie sheet with cookies on
them and a rolling pin)
We already have people talking about what they want to bring for next year!
Thanks for all the info on your site, it was very helpful in the ideas
