Pick new Holiday Cookie Recipes to share at your cookie exchange.

Do you know about cookie exchanges? You bake one kind of cookie and bring all guests at the exchange a dozen or so to take home with them. They do the same. This event is designed to save everyone time because guests only have to bake one kind of cookie but can share dozens of different cookies with their friends and family! This is something fun to organize with your neighbors or friends at work.

If you want some time-saving tips on baking cookies, we offer these

  • For cookies made with dough that need to be refrigerated, mix the batch of dough before bed and refrigerate overnight; wake up, and half the work is already done.
  • When making cookies containing butter, take the butter out of the refrigerator and place it in your mixing bowl for at least 4 hours before mixing. It will take less time to blend.
  • Set your kitchen up as a production line. Get your utensils out and your ingredients measured and covered before bed. When you wake up, you will feel it’s taking far less time.
