I had the pleasure of participating in a cookie exchange at one of our local churches. We are blessed with many awesome churches in our town and this one has a women’s group that is extremely active and fun. Every year, they have this Cookie Exchange and several of the gals from my MOPS (Mothers of Preschoolers) group decided to participate. It was awesome of them to include our group in their event. We had a blast!
The Day After the Cookie Exchange
Coming home with one of each of all those cookies was fun but presented a challenge for this mom of two and wife of a husband who is avoiding sugar. I didn’t want to have to break every cookie in half to share with the two girls and I didn’t want to tempt my husband with the sugary goodness that was my plate of cookies. I also, just plain didn’t want to share. LOL
So anyway…I ended up making this fun video about the day after the Cookie Exchange. How to have your cookies and eat them too. Check it out! It’s pretty silly and bound to give you a smile this holiday season.
Turns out, if you eat all the cookies while making a video about how to save the cookies for yourself then you pretty much solved your own problem in the process.
Don’t forget to give this video a thumbs up on YouTube! You are awesome!
What to Take To a Cookie Exchange
I took my Peanut Buttery Holiday Cookie to the exchange. They have become my go-to recipe for these things. I think because of that, I’ve gotten used to the process and that makes it easier. My cookie is unique because it contains dates, flaxseed, and coconut oil. But it is oh so very yummy. We like to keep them in the freezer. So try my cookie or take one that you’re used to making. It’s always good to have a go-to recipe for these kind of events.
