If you’ve been following Relishments for a while, you know cookie swaps are one of my favorite holiday activities. I’ve averaged 2-3 a year since I moved to western Massachusetts, between work, church, blogger get-togethers and other friends. For my swapping purposes, I usually choose recipes that are simple and make a lot of cookies (because there’s nothing like an invite that requests you bring 8 dozen cookies!) and are different than the standard holiday fare. Very rarely do you know what kinds of cookies other people are bringing, so I strive to avoid duplicating what others might have.
So what recipes have worked out well for me? Check out my 7 favorites:
1. Whole Wheat Sables with Cocoa Nibs (I generally use mini chocolate chips)
