Heeeey everyone! I hope everyone had a great holiday! We had a wonderful time here at my house. My little guys were so good and extremely grateful to Santa for spoiling them :) And we even cut back this year! I am grateful for good little guys :) Lots of time with family and we had a great holiday.
Hope yours was the same :)
It is the last night of my holiday break! I am ready to start work tomorrow, all geared up for LOTS of CHA preperations! CHA-Winter always seems to sneak up on us since it's in January...but our booth is going to be incredible! Even my hubby has been in on the preparations, so fun :)
I am excited to share a fun post with you. No paper involved lol. Actually our Cookie Swap Cookbooks are covered in DCWV paper but I didn't get a picture :) Whenever I hear my boss telling someone about our blog he always mentions, "And we share recipes too!" lol :) So I know he is good with me posting these pictures and recipes!
I host a Holiday Cookie Swap for some of my neighbors. I have the BEST neighbors and friends by the way :) Our neighborhood is a blast! This was my 5th year doing the Cookie Swap since I have been in the neighborhood going on 6 years. It is so much fun to get together and try new recipes.
12 of us come and bring 3 dozen cookies each. They unload their cookies on to their spot on the counter. Then they reload 3 of each cookie back onto their platter.
So everyone goes home with 3 cookies, 12 different kids! I pretty much don't cook dinner on cookie swap night and we just pig out. No lie :)
Don't these look SO good! My favorites this year were the Smore Cookies & the Chocolate Mint Tassies. But really, there wasn't a bad one in the bunch!
I wanted to share the recipes this year! I gather the recipes, print little books and use my cute Christmas Stack of the year and make a cover. It's fun to look back on the last 5 years and see each of our holiday stacks featured on a cover of the cookbook. You can print these out and try them yourselves. The diet starts after New Years right?? ;)
Have a great day! Remember, the Stack-a-holic Template Challenge ends Wednesday night so get me those entries!!!
