Christmas Cookie Swap Party

Hello All!

I had hoped to get this posted sooner but the time just flies by when I'm off work!  Jenna's cookie party was a hit.  She and I got the kitchen decorated:

Jenna hung the glass globes filled with white glitter and the snowflakes.

Next we set up the buffet:

The guests placed their cookies on the dining room table:

They were the star of the party!

Maple Walnut Blonde Brownies

Creeper Trail Cookies

Egg Nog Sugar Cookies with Nutmeg Glaze

Red Velvet Chocolate Chip Cookies

Orange Butter Cookies with Orange Glaze 

There were awards, too!  The best looking cookie went to Victoria and her Red Velvet Chocolate Chip cookies:

She won the apron she's modeling for us :)

Most unique cookie went to Nicole for her Creeper Trail cookie.  These cookies are like a soft gingerbread; they were delicious.  Nicole said she got the recipe for them from a bed & breakfast where she and her husband stayed on vacation.

She won a Starbucks gift set.

The most creative cookie went to Jacob for his maple blonde brownies:

He won the milk & cookies mug man!

The best tasting cookie was tie between Jenna's orange butter cookies and Melissa's Egg Nog sugar cookies!

She won the cookie baking set.

The day was so much fun and everyone agreed we should make it an annual event!  Jen and I have already set up our Cookie Swap 2014 Pinterest planning board!

Have a great weekend!
