Christmas Cookies are fun and can be use for all parties at Christmas time. Christmas Cookie Parties, Office Christmas Pot Luck Parties and Cookie Swaps (which seem to become more popular than ever). Beginning today and over the next couple of weeks, I will post delicious cookie recipes and fun ways to decorate as gifts, swap containers. Over the years I have been in many Cookie Swaps, Cookies for Church and Cookies for Pot Lucks and Family events. Cookies are always delicious but when they arrived all decorated in special packaging for a cookie swap or a neighbor
