Cookie Exchange Tradition

I’m so excited to share one of my favorite Christmas traditions with you!

Every year my Aunt Kathy hosts a cookie exchange for the ladies in our church. All of these women are amazing bakers, so there’s an amazing selection. AND SO MANY COOKIES!

Kathy made dinner before the exchange and prepared adorable favors! She’s great 🙂

Of course, I snapchatted a little throughout the evening….

Somehow, I had this giant box to fill with cookies! and everyone brought home at least 3 normal-sized boxes….

Hi Stef!

The church also put together several tins for the assisted-living building in the neighborhood…

Now go bake some cookies! I made some biscotti, and it was yummy! Here’s a very similar recipe, but I usually use cranberries and white chocolate, or just chocolate chips with some chocolate drizzle.
