National Cookie Exchange Day

National Cookie Exchange Day

National Cookie Exchange Day is a great way to celebrate the joy of giving and receiving during winter holidays. Cookies first appeared in Persia in 7th century, and then became common in Europe in 14 century. Cookies became a Christmas tradition, especially gingerbread cookies, which included spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger. Cookies may also have contained nuts or dried fruits at one time. Christmas cookies have evolved to include more intricate flavors and designs, as well as fancy frostings, decorations, and cookie cutters. Cookie baking is a traditional winter holiday activity. Many families hold onto their cookie recipes and enjoy sharing them with others. It’s a win-win! Each participant bakes their own cookies and gives them away to others. It’s a win for everyone! You can bake a few batches of cookies ahead of your event and have the guests package them in small boxes of six to twelve cookies that they can take home. You can also make it part of your after-hours party with wine, hors doeuvres and Christmas music. In a smaller setting, you might invite only a few friends to a cookie-making party. Everyone should bring their own ingredients (e.g. butter, sugar, or flour) and then bake the cookies together. In honor of National Cookie Exchange Day, learn from your friends how to make them. Then incorporate them into family Christmas traditions.

The event is finished.
