A bunch of different types of food, with Cookie

Step 1: Invite Friends – have each person make one type of cookie/treat. Make enough for each guest to get at least one of each.

Step 2: Bake the perfect treat (remember, style, originality, taste and presentation are all weighted equally)

Step 3: Eat, swap, eat more! (provide boxes for each person to take their goodies home!)

Probably the most difficult part of the cookie swap is coming up with that blue ribbon cookie! We all have THAT friend who comes with the most creative and delicious treat every single year. Well worry no more – we got you covered this year! Check out all of these great cookie swap options!!

  1. The roly poly Santa recipe will not show up. It says the site could be corrupt. I tried it twice and left the cookie site. I did print several cookie recipes but not Santa

  2. Always looking for new cookie recipes! I love to bake at least 2 or 3 batches a week. … now I have a whole new selection to mix it up with! Thanks!

  3. Thank you so much for the link love and the shout out! I sincerely appreciate it! What a fun idea, to take ideas you find online and put them all in the same place. 🙂

    Happy Holidays!
