Day 28 of Pinterest ~ Cookie Exchange

Welcome to Day 28 of

As we wind down the month-long adventure of Pinterest, I’m excited to share a few dessert recipes that I’ve found and now considering for an upcoming cookie exchange. My book club meets next Saturday for our regular monthly gathering and book discussion, but we’re adding a potluck luncheon and cookie exchange for the holiday season. Lord willing, I will also bake a batch (or two) of mini-cupcakes for everyone to enjoy as we eat and discuss this month’s read: The Red Tent by Anita Diamant. Which, by the way, is an excellent book and I highly recommend it.

Do you have a favorite cookie recipe that you always use for holidays or special occasions? Do you participate in a cookie exchange?

I can say for certain that the orange zest cookies are delicious. I made a batch last weekend when I was supposed to be packing for our trip to KY and cleaning the house. I eventually finished baking and packed our necessities, but not before tucking a few of those cookies in my carry-on bag. Fortunately, TSA security at DFW Airport did not take them away. Lucky for me, they tasted even better at 37,000 feet altitude!!!!!!!
