Cookie Swap Party

A-Tooch loves a good reason to get the girls together to booze catch-up. Although a cookie swap is really a little too ‘girly’ for her, it seemed like the right fit for a winter event on a school night.

Since we’re not the real housewives of NYC and work pretty long hours, I new I’d have to be a little flexible in the rules. Here’s what I asked of the ladies:

1. All cookies should be homemade. No cookie mixes. You can make any kind of cookie, brownie, bar, etc. you’d like. Be creative.
2. You will need to bring at least three dozen cookies. This ensures every guest will swap for three cookies from each of the other guests.
3. BYO tupperware to transport your collected cookies home in.
4. Bring a dozen printed out copies of your cookie recipe to the party or email it to me at least one day in advance. (Nobody did this, including me. Oops.)
5. If you don’t have time to bake or burnt your cookies, but still want to attend, you must go to a real bakery and buy three dozen delicious cookies. What you lack in time spent baking you must make up for in expense! (ahem, momo milk bar?)

Turned out great! I made plain and nutella-dipped shortbread cookies, which joined peanut butter brownies, oatmeal cookies, two types of ginger snap cookies, and more.

A box of wine, two bottles of champagne and a round of carb and cheese appetizers later, we were ready to dig in and sample everything.

I had leftovers for days and shared with my much-approving doormen, bf, cousins, coworkers, etc. The cookies were even just in time to make an appearance at the Super Bowl feast later that week.
