A cookie swap is a great way to swap cookies with guests and get ahead on your holiday baking. To host a cookie swap party, you will start by inviting a group of friends and having each person make enough of one kind of holiday cookie recipe to share. At the cookie swap, you can have guests sample the cookies, then trade and package the cookies in appealing assortments. Everyone at the party leaves with finished cookies and plenty of new recipes. Send out the invitations, inviting guests three to four weeks in advance. A good number of people is seven to eight people, which makes the party manageable, yet enough people for a good variety of holiday cookie recipes. Have each person at the party bring along copies of their holiday cookie recipe as well as some supplies for packaging, such as ribbons, boxes, or tags. Ask each guest to make about a dozen cookies for every person that will be at the party, plus an extra dozen cookies for sampling, and you do the same. This way, everybody at the party will go home with several dozens of different holiday cookies.

The day of the party you want to set up a packaging station. Ask the guests to bring some wrapping materials; you might also keep some packaging on hand in case any are overlooked. Set everything out for the cookie swap on large worktables. Consider stocking the cookie packaging station with some tags or sticky labels, twine, ribbons, cardboard boxes, baking papers, sturdy paper plates, scissors, hole punches, tissue paper, cellophane, and other trimmings. Consider edging some paper plates with some pinking shears, setting the plate on a different colored plate, and then topping with tissue. Guests at the party can arrange a selection of holiday cookies on top and slide it into cellophane for a simple holiday gift. Or, set out your decorated platter of holiday cookies and display it on your holiday table. On the day of the party, make plenty of coffee and tea, and clear a few tables for swapping, sampling, and packaging holiday cookies. Provide several platters, and some cake stands, and have each guest at the party put out a plate of holiday cookies for tasting, with stacks of the holiday cookie recipes alongside if you like. Let everyone at the party sample the cookies and maybe even take a vote on the best holiday cookie recipe. When it's time to trade cookies, set out the remaining holiday cookies and let each person walk around the cookie table to pick up their share of each.
