We all love variety and especially at Christmas.  I love when a friend or neighbor gives us a plateful of different cookies.  When we were kids we would go to my grandma’s house and she would bring out a huge tray of a variety of yummy cookies and candy.  It was a yearly highlight.

 We would all love to spend time baking, but sometimes, we just don’t have the time.  Plus, we may have decided to do less, so what do we do?  Here is a GREAT idea.  I was invited to a cookie exchange about 10 years ago and I have loved the idea ever since.

 What do you do?

  1. Invite 12 friends/church members to bring 12-dozen (or ½ dozen) of their favorite cookies.
  2. Everyone tastes a few of their favorite cookies and then
  3. They all exchange 1 dozen
  4. Voila. You get 12 varieties of cookies.

You can box the cookies up and give to neighbors, co-workers and family. It makes your baking REALLY easy. You only have to make one kind. It makes it simple and productive. J - Rejoicing in the Present

 P.S. Last year, I didn’t have a kitchen since my floor was being worked on.   So I made snow-dipped Oreos.  (Oreo’s Dipped in white chocolate, sprinkled with sprinkles) See recipe tomorrow
