For the past two years, I’ve hosted a Christmas cookie swap in our home: Everyone arrives with a few dozen homemade cookies, spreads them out on the table, and gathers around talking and sampling. There are kid crafts, a photo booth, and music playing throughout. It is as amazing as it sounds (if you like cookies or socializing, at least)! At the end of the night, each guest takes home a box of all sorts of cookies, and for us, we eat cookies for breakfast and clean up Christmas confetti for days on end. What joy!
As you can imagine, Covid has put this year’s party on hold, but I can’t give up the Christmas cookies! Instead, we’ll be safely baking treats and delivering them to our friends instead. If you’d like to join in on the Christmas cheer, you can download these printer-friendly tags and deliver a batch of goodness yourself (cookies not included)!
Another fun option to consider would be to do a virtual party where it’s coordinated so that each person receives a new cookie recipe to try from someone else. Everyone could bake each others’ recipes and then taste test over Zoom while catching up and spreading cheer!
