My cookie exchange at work will be a dozen cookies each and there are 5 of us!! I am making chocolate dipped Oreos!!

We are not exchanging cookies at the brunch though, just cooking a big meal for my girlfriends to let them know how much I appreciate their friendship!!

How about you, Bar bar? Did you decide whether to have a cookie exchange??!!

peace,train

thanks for the website

well today a lady and I got talking and it looks as if it was going to be on Thur the 19th but after looking at calender we realize this won't work so we are going to do it on Tue 16th.
glad this has been decided now just hope the other woman will be in supportive of this as well. if it goes well then maybe next yr we be able to do another one. just have to wait and see for sure.

Happy Holidays, 2004!!!!!!

This is a wonderful thread with lots of great information on cookie exchanges so thought I would start it up again!!
If you plan on having an exchange, lots of good ideas here!

I had a Christmas brunch last year but did not do a cookie exchange. This year I am going to try both!!

How about you? Anyone planning a cookie exchange, potluck gathering, brunch or any sort of holiday get together?
Share your ideas and thoughts for entertaining here!

Merry Christmas!! Train

I'm starting to plan my first cookie exchange. There will hopefully be a total of 12 of us, including myself. We'll each bake one type of cookie, 6 dozen of it. So that would divide up into bags of a half dozen of each cookie for each guest-assuming I would want to keep atleast a half dozen of my own. Right?

My Christmas Cookie Exchange

Hello. I am not hosting a Christmas Cookie Exchange Party this year, but I am participating in one with an online recipe group of which I am a member. We are making cookies and sending them plus the recipe to another member. The recipient list is a surprise. We listed what our allergies or dislikes were, but otherwise the cookie recipes we choose are up to us. I think this will be a lot of fun.
