The Spruce Eats has a great way to throw the Ultimate Cookie Exchange Party.
“A cookie exchange party is a fabulous way to celebrate the holidays, or ring in the New Year. Nothing brings us together like baked goods, and unlike a White Elephant party where the guests bring gifts, a cookie swap event asks each guest to show up with a dozen or more home-baked cookies. At the party, everyone gets to sample an assortment of cookies baked by other guests, and then leaves with a take-away container of their favorite cookies—and a whole lot of delicious cookie recipes. Host a cookie exchange for the ones you love with our complete party planning guide, including a detailed timeline.”
