Have You Ever Hosted a Cookie Swap?

The San Francisco Chronicle recently published a story about the rise of the cookie swap. A cookie swap is a holiday party in which guests are asked to bring several batches of homemade cookies. The cookies are exchanged at the event, and everyone walks away with an assortment of delicious treats. The article talks about the books, websites, and groups devoted to the popular party, but I'm wondering how many people actually host and attend cookie swaps? With the holiday season about to kick into full swing, there may be one on your agenda. Are you cookie swapping this December?

I'm usually the one giving a big plate of cookies to each of my friends. I only have one other friend who likes to bake so it would be a small exchange. ;)

I hosted them every year growing up for all my little friends or should i say my mother and I hosted it. Everyone brought their homemade cookies (their best recipes) - one plate for sharing and one for who ever would get your cookies. It was the best. Also we were decked out in adorable holiday dresses, drank tea and cider and sometimes had a gift exchange -- oh and there were games -- it was oh so much fun, I don't remember what year I stopped, but I miss it.

my friend jessica has a cookie making party every xmas. we all bring our favorite recipes and everyone goes home with a large goodie bag. Sugar and wine — is there a better way to spend a sunday afternoon?!

I've only done this once. After I made dozens and dozens of very nice, homemade cookies - we had our swap. One lady brought in store bought candy canes with the tips dipped in white chocolate. I either fell for it and worked harder than I had to, or she took the easy way out. Either way, I'd rather have a variety of my own cookies than take a chance on what I'll get from others.

Nope. I only know a couple of other people who can't have gluten and we're all pretty new at it!

I just moved and don't know enough people who bake and all. Otherwise I'd hold one. So for now I'm just passing out cookies as gifts.
