I love cookie exchanges! Such a great way to find new favorites.
I was only involved in a cookie exchange several years ago at the office where I worked. Coworkers agreed to bring two dozen home-baked cookies and everyone was suppose to go around the table in the lounge and take two dozen cookies of our choice. Somehow I was near the end of the in line and all that was left was a sad plateful of store bought cookies someone brought for five or six of us. I had told my kids that I would be bringing home goodies, so they were disappointed I came home empty handed. I thought maybe people took more than their share, or some people took cookies who forgot or failed to bring any, but as it turned out, the managers in the office who were not privy to an exchange going on thought they were meant as treats for everyone and had helped themselves….. ruh roh…
What would the holidays be with out cookies! Some of my fondest memories are of making and decorating cookies as gifts.
