Have you ever done a cookie exchange?


  1. cookies sounds great! it’s been a long time since we’ve done a cookie exchange.

  2. We should get together and make stickers that say “When in doubt go for peanut butter. Or chocolate. Or both.” We could make a killing on those. It’s my motto, too 😉

  3. These look so easy! I love PB cookies so they’re obviously a win. I haven’t been to a cookie exchange in forever, but they are a lot of fun!

  4. love the combo of peanut butter and chocolate.I am glad you were able to whip these last minute 🙂

  5. Pretty damn good for having a 1 hour warning! I’m inviting you to my next cookie exchange!

  6. I don’t know. I would rather have a bunch of cookies you made versus a bunch I made LOL.

  7. Wow so easy and so yummy! After all, PB + chocolate is the BEST combo ever!

  8. Oh my gosh! These look so good Liz. I am baking cookies with my friend on Wednesday night and wanted something easy since I won’t be in my kitchen. I’m FOR SURE going to make these. Looking forward to trying them 🙂

  9. Can I just say how impressed I am by your way of handling the situation? I’d have had a minor freak-out upon that realization but you obviously did amazing even coming up with a new recipe.
    The idea of cookie exchanges unfortunately has yet to spread over here. I’m slightly jealous of US and Canadian bloggers constantly mentioning them right now – certainly a lot of fun,

  10. I love the short ingredient list of these!

    I’ve not done a cookie swap but would love to do one.

  11. I went to a cookie exchange once with my sister and her friends. It was such a fun time…and so tasty 🙂 Your last minute cookies look so much better than anything I could ever make! haha

  12. These cookies look so good!! I just went to my first cookie exchange party last week and it was so fun!


  13. Your packaging is adorable! I sure wish I had your skill. Ha Ha. I’ve never been to a cookie exchange, but I do make many batches of cookies over the holiday season for Joshua & his co-workers.

  14. Mmmm these sounds live pure heaven!

  15. i didn’t know you did gymnastics — what kind? and cookie exchanges have always sounded like fun, but i’ve never actually been to one. i have done lots of baking parties though, and i like them so well i’m not entirely sure i would trade 🙂

  16. Lovely! I used to organise a cookie exchange each year but I just haven’t found the time this makes me wanna organise one now! Whoever received yours was very lucky, yum!

  18. I think I’ve done a cookie exchange before — it’s a lot of fun, but can be stressful if you forget about it. Peanut butter and chocolate IS a great way to go! Good choice! 😉

  19. I’ve never done a cookie exchange, but you reminded me that my friends and I intended to do one this year! Oops! Chocolate peanut butter cookies are some of my favorites 🙂
