Giving and receiving cookies is a tasty and budget-friendly way to share the holiday spirit with friends and family. Holiday cookie exchange parties are based on a simple idea: each party guest bakes enough cookies to share at the party and for others to take home. If you're planning on hosting or attending a cookie swap this year, we've got plenty of Christmas cookie exchange party ideas, plus deliciously swap-tastic cookie recipes! Always a popular favorite, it seems like smoothe chocolate peanut butter-y Buckeyes (page 9) are always part of a cookie exhange. Or try our bite-sized Fruitcake Cookies (page 10) - we promise this is one holiday fruitcake you won't have a problem getting rid of! And wrap individual slices of our Holiday Cherry Yule Logs (page 2) in colored plastic cellophane and tie with a ribbon for a a fun and festive treat. Have yourself a merry little cookie exchange with these easy Christmas cookie recipes!
