Cookie Exchange








We had a cookie exchange at work today.  There were 9 of us participating.  So on Sunday morning I baked 9 dozen  White Chocolate and Cranberry.  This is the recipe:

Mix together until well blended:

3/4 cup butter

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup white

Add 2 eggs and 1 tbsp. vanilla and continue mixing.

Combine 2-1/4 cup flour and 3/4 tsp. baking soda.  Mix that into the first ingredients.

Stir in 1-1/2 cups dried cranberries and 1-1/4 cups white chocolate chips

Drop in tablespoons onto baking sheet.  Bake for 8-10 minutes.   They are best when a little doughy do not allow to brown.  This recipe made 36 cookies. 

For the cookie exchange I was able to fit 12 cookies into each of 9 cello bags and I added a little Christmas decoration.   Don’t they look pretty in their packages?  langstons-to-xmas-decorations-028The remaining dozen we each put onto a separate plate.  We drank apple cider and each would take a turn passing our cookies around and telling a bit about them.  We also printed a copy of our recipe for everyone.  It was great fun and in return I came home with a lovely mix of 8 dozen cookies.   langstons-to-xmas-decorations-048langstons-to-xmas-decorations-0473The selection of cookies was great and I can’t wait to share them over the holiday season.  It really was fun and although initially it took me 3 batches to make enough it was easy because I just had to repeat the same thing and ended up with all kinds of different cookies!  YUMMY!!!

Have you ever been in a cookie exchange?  How many dozen did you have to bake?

    Thank you for your recent visit to Haven. I have just roared through the posts listed on this page and I am so intrigued that I am bookmarking your blog to return in leisure one day next week or in the New Year.

    Right now, I’m wondering if I can possibly squeeze in baking those delicious looking cookies. Oh, and I have a recipe for Swedish nuts, but we don’t call them that so I think I’ll switch to your name since I am married to a Swede. ;>

    Have a Merry Christmas!

  6. On two occasions I’ve participated in a cookie exchange. I loved the fun and the variety.

    Merry Christmas!

  9. Those really look good and your packaging is very artistic too.

  10. Hi Judi! Your cookies look delish! I am keeping your recipe. My Dad would love these (well, me too). I’ve been in many a cookie exchange. My ex-husband’s office used to exchange and there were 12 of them. He always signed me up for Russian Tea Cakes which are an easy cookie thank goodness. Hope you are having a Happy Holiday Season! ~ Robyn

  11. My big cookie exchange was a couple of weeks ago and there were a LOT of cookies! We do six dozen each, and there were 15 bakers. The ones I make have very similar ingredients to yours…I just lllooovvveee white chocolate and cranberries together! I make biscotti…they’re a crowd pleaser (in fact I made more for Christmas) and much easier to make than they look.

    Hope you had a Merry Christmas!!
