Pinterest Cookie Exchange Recipe Ideas


Cookie Exchange Ideas

A few years back when I belonged to what then was called the Junior Women’s Club in town, each year we would host an annual Cookie Exchange around the holidays. It was so much fun to get gussied-up for a Girl’s Night Out to enjoy the friendship, conversation, libation and decorations!

This was long before the Internet was around where we can now exchange recipes with our family and friends through a virtual Cookie Exchange. The recipes are still delightful, and some of the photography is worthy of being award winners!

Rules of the Cookie Exchange


Did you know that some hostesses actually send out ahead of time Rules of the Cookie Exchange and have requirements for participating?

Well, there are no cookie exchange rules here, just some terrific recipes for a family cookie exchange with the kids, grandkids, neighborhood cookie swap, or to serve up for your own intimate holiday gathering!

Many of these recipes I found recently through a cookie exchange blog hop I participated in.
