A Christmas Cookie exchange is a great way to get a ton of different cookies for gifts and just for your house without having to make a ton of different cookies! Each person makes a few dozen of their favorite or best cookies, you all get together and share them. Then, each person has several dozen different types of cookies! Fun, right?
