Christmas Cookie Swap

Plan a party and share a bounty of baked goodies. (Serves 12)

Raspberry Linzer Windowpane Cookies

As holiday traditions go, attending or hosting a cookie swap is a great way to multitask--offering a chance to get together and exchange tokens with friends during the busy season, as well as a way to shortcut your holiday baking.

We have a variety of tasty recipes for portable, packable cookies that are ideal for this type of party, plus some ideas for nibbles to serve guests.
