The Cookie Exchange

>

(pumpkin chocolate chip, spritz, shortbread, caramel dipped marshmallows, apple cider caramel, holiday cookies, raisin nut nibbles, lemon cheese cups, )

Just for fun, I thought I would share some pics from the cookie exchange that I attended earlier in the week.  20 people came, each bringing 7 dozen cookies.  We took 4 cookies from each plate and ended up with a great assortment of treats for ourselves.

(chewy choco-cream cheese, snickerdoodles, fudge, lemon drop)
(peanut butter balls, chocolate ginger squares, andes chocolate, mint florentines, peanut butter blossoms)
(devilish marshmallow bites, oatmeal peanut butter, cookies n cream, white chocolate cran oatmeal)

It was a cookie-palooza if ever there was one.  I learned that you MUST bring a big empty container when you go to a cookie exchange.  As it was, I waited until my container was almost gone, transferred the remainder to a plate and then made my way around the tables.  I froze all of the normal cookies and left the marshmallow, frosting laden treats out for an easy, fun dessert for the family.  This was a ton of fun.  Definitely something that I want to do again in the future.
