The cookie exchange is really a disguise for a girls' afternoon. We enjoyed some bubbly, good food and each other's company. On Susan's recommendation, I made some leek quiches (http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/sandra-lee/mini-leek-quiches-recipe/index.html), and my mom's ham buns, artichoke dip, spinach dip, and a new recipe – Caesar salad bites. These turned out to be a big hit and are so easy. http://www.southernliving.com/food/entertaining/appetizer-recipes-00400000052549/page32.html
I did some quick labels so that guest would know which cookies they were taking. I used place cards, spray painted them red, added some decorative tape, and stamped my favorite tree from PSA Whimsy Tree.
Design Team member Jen Witmer (who has been recovering from back surgery) found some time to craft and bring cookies to the exchange. She made organic oatmeal scotchies – they are to die for! She created these adorable bags for guests to bring home, too. She stamped the snowman from PSA Vintage Snowman and colored him up. How cute!
Everyone had a great time!
Already looking forward to the 3rd annual.
