This past weekend I hosted a cookie exchange. These are the little invitations I sent out. The boxes were filled with Christmas Candy and tied off with a glittery ornament and mini spatula.
Cookie Exchange 2008 was held at my parents house this year so I was able to increase the guest list. I think there were around 20 people who each brought 5 dozen cookies for a total of 1200 cookies...thats a lot of cookies.
I purchased cheese from Liberty Heights Fresh for a cheese tray. My favorite was named Barely Buzzed and is manufactured by a local cheese company the Beehive Cheese Company.
It was a white cheddar with a ground coffee bean and lavender rind. I loved it and now want to try other cheeses made by this company.
There were 4 cookie exchange prizes and here are the results-
Chocolate Punguins and Cherry Mice
(These were so cute why don't I have a photo?)
(creative ingredient carrots)
Cutest Recipe Card-Jill
Cookie Exchange Favors-
cello bag of hot chocolate
dried apple trail mix made with apples my dad dried from his apple tree behind his house.
Thanks to everyone who came to my cookie exchange and start looking for cookie recipes for next year......save the date always the first weekend in December!
