Our house has been doing a cookie exchange long before it was popular. We've done it in huge groups of nearly a hundred and small groups of under 10. I thought I'd share some tips.
- Check to see if anyone has allergies and how best to notify them not to eat a certain cookie. For instance, it they can't have nuts, tell exchangers to either avoid making cookies with nuts or indicate whether there are nuts in their cookie.
- Ask your exchangers to try making homemade cookies. It makes the exchange more interesting and unique.
- If some exchangers can't make homemade - don't sweat it, no reason to get upset. It'll spoil the fun.
- Layout cookies on a long table. The spread looks impressive. We had an exchange at a school once and laid out the cookies down the hallway.
