Let the warmth of friendship take the chill from the air, and the spirit of the season make winter easier to bear.
BYOB bottle of wine, mixed drink or beer. I will take care of all Appetizers.
I would like to have a Cookie exchange, so each person will have a cookie to take home . Please bake your cookies if you can. Nothing better than homemade cookies for Christmas.
Everyone bake your cookies at least three days in advance. The
biggest reason is that this is the busiest time of year.
Another reason to bake the cookies early is so that they can "dry out" a bit.
A freshly baked cookie is not a good cookie to transport. When we're swapping,
we're piling different types of cookies on top of each other and the fresh ones
crumble terribly, especially if it's a fragile cookie to begin with. After the
cookies have been baked, they should sit out all night on a rack to cool and
lose their moisture, with a piece of wax paper over them. Then you can put them
into a cookie tin, with wax paper under and over them and between the layers.
It's a nice break from the stressful Christmas season. Will get
everyone in the holiday spirit.
How to do the Cookie Swap:
After everyone has eaten and socialized a bit, I call the swap to order by
ringing a bell and we gather into the dinner room where the cookies have been
laid out on the table as people arrived.
When cookie swap happens, we will slowly go around the table
clockwise. Everyone grabs 3-5 cookies from each plate, depending on how many
are in each dish.
I will have cookies bags for everyone to put your cookies
