1st Annual Cookie Swap

I hosted my 1st annual Holiday Cookie Swap last week and it was a success! I didn't get many pictures, but that was because we were having such a good time. Here are the cookies I made:

Chewy Chocolate Cookies
from the 2008 January/February Cooks Illustrated magazine

They are so good. I made them before and they really are to die for. They have chocolate chunks in them which just puts it over the top for me. Adam has been enjoying my leftovers.

"Christmas Cookies"
from The Food Network's Robin Miller
I have made these for several years. I love the green and red and the dipping in white chocolate makes it special. I am not a fan of making homemade sugar cookie dough, so I am glad this recipe calls for the pre-made dough. Another hit, at least in my family.

And here was the table after the swap. You can see there are a lot of cookies still left. I told everyone to take the leftovers, but most people did not, which means I was left with my swap cookies (2 dozen), the extras from my 2 cookies, and then everyone elses extras. Yikes! We have a lot of cookies in the house right now.
I can't wait until next year's. I will have to start thinking of my recipes now. :)
