It's a Christmas Cookie Exchange that a friend of mine is hosting and I'm so excited!
BTW, that's a wonderful way to get family and friends together for the holidays. Then, everyone walks away with a great assortment of cookies, ready for parties or gift-giving!
For this particular party, besides sharing cookies, the guests will also be sharing their recipes. Now, what to bake? What to bake? Hmmm...maybe NO-BAKE. Any ideas? I want a cookie that will be as much a delight to the eyes as it is to the tongue but not too time-consuming or complicated! Of course, I'll want to post the end result and maybe the recipe.
Also consider another FUN, FUN, FUN (!!!) Christmas tradition of mine~the TAFFY PULL! If you've never done it, you might want to consider making it your own family funthing for the holidays or anytime. It requires more than one person, so plan a time when you can do it. My mother's recipe (God Bless) is posted. I miss my mother every day, but using her favorite traditional recipes brings a warm feeling, almost like having her there. She wouldn't mind my passing them on but, I'll warn you, she always left something out! Her little way of keeping her secrets to herself! It was always up to me to figure out what was missing. (She's still doing it. The missing ingredient is MOM. What a sense of humor!)
I challenge you to either start a new and fun family/friend tradition or do what another friend of mine is doing this Christmas~she's doing random acts of kindness all month long. She's already a kind person, just kicking it up to the next level!
