It’s a sweet tradition that fun year after year. Here’s the best part: each person bakes a bunch of their favorite cookies and brings them to the party. Then, everyone swaps cookies, so you end up with a yummy variety to taste and enjoy.

You get to taste different flavors and discover new recipes. The best part is that you not only leave with a tummy full of treats but also with new cookie recipes to try at home. It’s a a delicious way to spread joy and make the holidays even more scrumptious!
