Best Cookie Exchange Recipes

 It’s that time of year! Holiday parties have filled my calendar including a cookie exchange or two. Here are my BEST cookie exchange recipes if you need some inspiration!Best Cookie Exchange Recipes from That Skinny Chick Can Bake blog

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 up my best cookie exchange recipes—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 cookie exchange, hostess or holiday gifts!
