Saturday I hosted the cookie exchange party and it was equally fun and delicious (click here to download the free invites)! I'm already excited to have another one next year. Everyone made some yummy treats, which made the voting process pretty tough. We had milk and hot chocolate (Stephen's Chocolate Mint Truffle + Whole Milk= Heaven) and some veggies & Rosemary Triscuits to balance out all the sweets.
After sampling a little of each cookie, everyone had a chance to vote on their ballots. There were 4 awards: Most Unique, Best Looking, Most Creative, and Best Overall. Each winner received cookie cutters, gold mini cupcake liners and some candy and the Best Overall winner also received some Starbucks Salted Caramel Hot Chocolate Mix. All the other guests were sent home with a tin of cookies and an envelope with all the recipes!
The Grand Prize winner was my friend Jess with her Pumpkin Glazed Cookies. Hopefully she'll let me share the recipe later this week. I loved them!
