Thanks first for your site - it's awesome!!! I held my first
cookie swap, and my friends had never even heard of one!!
We ended up with 4 people participating and others wanting one not
so close to Christmas next year (mostly teachers who had to do report
It was a challenge - we all instinctively thought of chocolate chip
cookies - but it was fun looking for new/different recipes.
I'm in the middle of Australia, so it's very HOT at this time of the
year, probably not ideal for a baking session...but it didn't stop us.
It was so much fun at the end of it all when we did the swap.For our first
time we asked everyone involved to bake a dozen cookies per participant.
We had melting moments, passionfruit shortbread, jam drops and some
multi coloured italian layer biscuits.
I held the swap as part of my MONSTER CROP AND COOKIE SWAP Creative
Memories workshop. Probably would do it separately next time. We had lots
of wine and good food to eat, ending with my gingerbread house...
I've attached some pictures and hope to be able to report a bigger
and better event in 2008.
