Special Event-Holiday Cookie Exchange

cookie exchange

Where: JoAnn Batey’s home 251 Pine Tree Drive
When: Friday Dec 12 1:00pm -3:00pm

Come get into the Holiday Spirit with friends. It’s time to pull out those recipes and decorating ideas! We will be exchanging our favorite cookies, while enjoying light appetizers and wonderful warm drinks. Maximum number of participants is 15 for this event.

Please RSVP to JoAnn at as soon as possible. I suspect the 15 slots will fill up fast.

Things to bring

1. Bring approximately (4) dozen of your favorite home baked cookies.

2. A container to take cookies home.

3. Your favorite tea cup or mug.

4. Your cookie recipe, if you are willing to share.

There will be prizes for the best decorated, best presentation and best tasting cookies. The number of cookies may change, depending on how many people attend. I will let everyone know if the number changes. It would also be helpful if the cookies you bake were small to please bring extras. To alleviate the possibility of everyone bringing the same cookies, I will be contacting the 15 people that will be attending and share what type of cookies everyone is bringing.
