Christmas Cookie Exchange

TUESDAY…it’s TUESDAY already!!!!

Today I’m joining Andrea for Show and Tell Tuesdays to talk about a favorite Christmas recipe or tradition.

If something has happened once can you call it a tradition???

I’m going to talk about my Christmas Cookie Exchange that I hosted last night. Who knows, maybe you are seeing first hand a tradition being born.

You know when you have an idea and you think “this will be great, this will be easy”?

Yeah, this was one of those. It was great and it was easy, but it did involve a little work. I’m so lucky Katie was home to be my right hand and help me pull it off.


I sent out an Evite a couple of weeks ago to the ladies that I was inviting. I decided to host this for our bible study leadership team because whenever we are together we’re always taking care of bible study “business” and rarely have an opportunity to just visit with each other. I provided appetizers (and naturally I forgot to take a single picture of those in my typical hustle and bustle…when will I ever catch on???)

Everyone was supposed to bring 3 dozen cookies, a cookie cutter and the recipe for the yummy treat they brought. 

I had everything set up on the side counter and ready to roll.

Katie made these for me and they were not only adorable but delicious and the absolute hit of the cookie exchange.

If I had to pick a favorite from all the cookies it would be a tie between Katie’s and these delicious Oatmeal Lace cookies. I will definitely be making these in the future.

I had a small prize for each of the these categories. Katie was once again awesome and made these cute little score cards for us to use.

These were the little prizes and I wrapped them all cute, but I don’t think I have to finish the sentence…(I forgot to take a picture?)

There were 2 more ladies who had already left when we took this picture. This is a really sweet group of women and I’m so happy to know them.

What are your Christmas traditions, new or old?

Now it’s time to get things ready for my parents arrival tomorrow. Time’s a ticking.

Happy Tuesday my friends!!!
