What is a cookie exchange?

You and the girls plan a time to get together.  You make a dozen cookies per person coming and take your set to the get together.  Each person does the same thing with their own favorite recipe.  Then, you relax, mingle, and swap!  So, if 6 of you get together, you have 6 different cookies to put together as gifts or to just eat at home.  Fun, right?  Plus, if you bring your recipe for each person, they can make your cookies throughout the year!

I always wanted to have a cookie exchange party . Should I start off with a small amount of people or maybe keep it to ten ? I would like to have a couple party . I would do the meat and some side dishes Plus I would also ask for everyone to bring a covered dish . I would have popcorn and a movie for the children . Plus along with all the cookies that you take home I will be making a scrap book cookbook for everyone to take home . How should everyone bring their cookies to share ? In zipper bags in tins ? I have always wanted to have a cookie exchange party !!! Do you think 10 would be too many to invite ?? Don't forget we also are having a sit down meal . Please help me get started.

If you are sitting a sit-down meal, I would only invite the number of people that will fit around your dining room table. :-) As for how to share, that is totally up to you. I usually buy the metal throwaway tins at Walmart for only a couple dollars. Then, I can sort into pretty gift tins when I get back home with my selection of different cookies.
