It’s cookie exchange time! Holiday parties have filled my calendar, including a cookie exchange or two. Here are my BEST cookie exchange recipes if you need some inspiration!
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 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 cookie exchange, hostess or holiday gifts!
Butterscotch Cookies – Simple chewy cookies flavored with butter and brown sugar will become family favorites!
Cranberry, White Chocolate, Crystalized Ginger Cookies -the “snap,” the flavor, the add-ins all make these one of my favorite holiday cookies!
Chewy Gingersnaps – these and my English toffee recipe are the top two favorites according to my friends and neighbors who get holiday goodies each year!
Turtle Thumbprints -all the yummy flavors of a turtle candy in a fun thumbprint cookie!
Caramel Biscoff Blossoms – a twist on peanut blossoms using cookie butter spread instead of peanut butter and a dab of caramel
Stained Glass Cookies – these beauties are easier than they look!
Holiday Truffle Cookies – chocolate is always appropriate for Christmas!
Star of Bethlehem Cookies – a twist on Peanut Blossoms for the holidays with chocolate star added to a peanut butter cookie instead of a chocolate kiss.
Triple Gingersnaps -for an extra boost of ginger flavor, these gingersnaps have fresh, dried and crystallized ginger!!!
I hope I’ve inspired you with some of my best cookie exchange recipes! Happy holidays and happy baking!!!
