Don't worry about serving a bunch of appetizers, but do offer a couple of easy nibbles like mixed nuts, cheese, and homemade savory cookies. Thyme, lemon, and sea-salt shortbread is crisp and buttery, while blue cheese pecan crackers are rich and addictive. You'll have to wait until tomorrow to see my suggested sweet cookie recipes, but you can learn the techniques for the salty shortbread and cheesy crackers when you keep reading.
People normally host cookie exchange parties around the winter holidays, but since it's National Cookie Month, I thought it would be fun to host one now! This way, when holiday season arrives, I will have a bunch of new cookie recipes to experiment with and choose from.
At a cookie swap, you invite friends to make a couple batches of cookies to bring to the party. If you've never been to one, use my plan to host your own! Select a panel of judges and have them taste all of the cookies and declare one the best. At the end of the party give everyone containers to take home as many cookies as they like.
Sound exciting? To get things started, make a fun little invitation with recipe cards included. To see how I made my booklet invite, read more
