Details of swap:
Love getting homemade holidays cookies? I do! Who doesn’t! Want to share your favorite recipe with another Craftster? Want to get some yummy cookies in the mail all to yourself? Sure you do! The sign up!

We are open to any religious denomination, but be sure to let your partner know, especially if you don’t want a snowman spatula. (See below.)

This is going to be a low stress holiday cookie swap. Minimum requirements will be one batch of homemade cookies, the recipe, and one small holiday item that can be bought or crafted. (Examples: cookie cutter, snowman spatula [they have these at Wal-Mart LOL] sprinkles, dishcloth, ornaments, etc etc.) Feel free to send more than one batch and more fun items, but be sure your recipe(s) is included.

People with severe allergies are also welcome to join. You will be swapping just recipes and the item. Or if you prefer not to send/receive cookies, you can also participate. (Once again, you'll just be sending/receiving recipes and the item.) But you will be required to send more than just once recipe. Talk this over with your partner. (Also be sure to let me know so I match you accordingly.)

Packages must be sent priority. I will send out details about packaging and shipping cookies later in the swap.

Oooooh!  I like this idea!  I love to bake, cakes, cookies, brownies, pies, whatever. 

I have some great unusual recipes, too.  Some I have developed myself.

I'll be watching this one for a few days until I clear up some of my other swaps.

DesignVigilante: Sure, you can send brownies and small cakes. Just make sure you package them so they don't break. Mmm brownies!  Cheesy

pinokeeo: I hope you join! Oooo, unusual and "developed yourself" recipes sound delish. I have yet to reach the baking level to do so. Usually I just vary an existing recipe.

If you start with some basic recipes, you can experiment and develop all kinds of things.

I'm just waiting for feedback on a couple of swaps.  I don't like to max out on my swaps, so I'll hold off until I'm clear on some of them.  We have a little time still.

Oooh, I like the idea of sending something a little different, like brownies or little cakes.  I was out looking for cookie tins already this morning but figured I should wait to see who my partner is. 

Just wondering if there was a size requirement for this swap...so many dozens or number of cookies total?
