Cookie Exchange Recipes

Packaging up loads of sweet treats is part of our holiday routine. Bill and Katie deliver all the goodies to our friends and neighbors. Along with an array of cookies, I make fudge, toffee, and peppermint bark. I’d be in deep trouble if I skipped any of the regulars!

I’ve linked my best cookie exchange recipes for you. I’m down to only one cookie swapping party per year, but I never like to make the same selection twice. I’ve included many of the sweets I make for the holidays plus some winners from past parties. I hope you find some inspiration for your next cookie exchange, hostess or holiday gifts!
