So I put together a cookie swap for a bunch of friends. I had never done one before, but I have always wanted to. However I don’t really have the space, nor am I centrally located to most of my friends.
My friends Erin & Colleen offered to host at their place. I forgot my camera that day, so all I have is pictures of my cookie.
Erin & Col had set-up a table with drinks, I brought pretzels and tortilla chi[s with salsa. I also had Spanakopita (Phyllo Dough with Spinach and Cheese) and Tyropita (Phyllo Dough with cheese). I figured we would need to have some salt to cut the sweetness.
December is hard to get people together but we had a great turnout and many different types of cookies. Every single one was delicious. We had:
Peanut Butter Kisses
Jam Thumbprint with 3 different types of jam
Chocolate Chip/ Chocolate Chocolate Chip Half-Moons
Frosted Sugar Cookies
Chocolate Mint Snow-Top Cookies
Chocolate Gooey Butter Cookie
Italian Tri-Color Cookies
I brought the Koulouria, a Greek cookie, and I can’t even share the recipe since it’s a family recipe my mother-in-law shared with me!
It was a great day of catching up with my girlfriends! I am so glad I was able to do this and Erin & Col were able to host.
