Cookie Exchange

So I went to my first ever cookie exchange — where everyone bakes a few dozen cookies, puts them in a row, and then you each go around taking two of each kind until they’re all gone. Then you get to go home with a selection of everyone’s top treats rather than just the one thing you know how to make really well. It’s a great way to socialize with your neighbors…and of course, overdose on baked goods at the same time.

This party was so much fun that I can hardly wait to do it again next year. And if I do say so myself…my recipe totally killed. So much so that I decided to share it here with all my loyal readers (and a special thanks to those of you who aren’t a blood relation). Also a big shout out to Josie who gave me the recipe in the first place. It’s totally foolproof and the end result looks like it came from a bakery. So you know it’s gotta be an awesome recipe since Jack has already informed everyone who will listen that “Mom’s not much of a cooker.” Be sure to use the brown sugar — it’s pretty great. I did dark brown, but light brown would be fine.

Hope you all enjoy it as much as we have!

Domino Chocolate Chip Cookies

Let me know how it goes!

    Both, both at the same time (socializing and eating)! And, thanks for the recipe!
