Around the holidays, there are many different treats to try and recipes to explore. Everything looks delicious, but trying to make all your favorites while branching out to try a few new treats is hard to do.
HERE’S AN EASY WAY TO SOLVE YOUR HOLIDAY BAKING DILEMMA – HOST A COOKIE SWAP!
Invite five or so friends and have everyone bring two dozen of their favorite Christmas cookies. When your guests arrive put all the trays out on a counter or table the cookie swap begins. Everyone then goes around and takes four treats from each tray (adapt as is necessary based on your number of guests). At the end of the party, everyone has twenty new cookies to sample in addition to the four favorites they brought.
We suggest trying a few cookies right there at the party. If you find a particular treat you like, you can find out who brought it and get the recipe for yourself.
Try to bake your cookies shortly before your guests arrive. The warm smell of your baking will greet your guests, welcoming them into your home.
Preparing for the cookie swap is easier than you’d expect. Using two Lehi Mills cookie mixes, simply add the wet ingredients, mix, drop on a cookie sheet and bake. You’ll be sharing the quality and taste of homemade without the stress and time-consuming preparation of baking from scratch.
[tooltip text=”For Perfect Round cookies” align=”right” ]For perfectly round cookies, purchase a cookie dough scoop. This is very similar to a melon baller and ensures each cookie is the same size and thickness. All your cookies will bake evenly, improving not only the taste, but the appearance of the cookies when you put them out on your party tray.[/tooltip]
You may feel guilty for making something that requires so little time and effort when your friends are making something from scratch. Don’t worry about it. It’s the taste that counts, and you’ve got that in spades.
