Some people attend “cookie exchange parties.” Others go to “cookie swap parties.” Still others host “holiday parties” — which are never complete without some cookies.
Call these festivities what you will, these events are simply an excuse to get together with friends and family . . . . and eat delicious cookies!
When I was twelve, I worked out a deal to bake cookies for a local restaurant! I remember that I’d get out of bed thinking about what kind of cookies I’d make that day. I felt the same excitement then as I do now when I’m going to test a new recipe.
