My daughters and I get together every year to bake hundreds of cookies. Most of them are given away. But we love the challenge of finding a few new recipes every year. You have helped a great deal! Thank you.

Thanks for the information. My girlfriend and I have decided to host an exchange for the first time this year. We were confused as to how many cookies people should bring, how many do you take home, etc. Your site gave a different perspective...don't worry about the quantity, just the quality. I'm printing out your information to take with me to kickboxing class this morning to share with my friend. Thanks for the info. Kim

I am planning a cookie exchange for our Secret Sisters group at church (about 40 women). Thanks for all the ideas. I wasn't sure about how to go about it. I thought there was some kind of mathematical formula as to how many cookies each person could take per recipe of cookies. Guess it's not as hard as I thought.

Thanks heavens for your site. I was at a basket party when we all started talking about Christmas and agreed that it would be fun to have a cookie exchange...of course they know my house would force me to get into the holiday spirit. I am a very creative person but have been very ill over the last year. Hopefully this will go very well. I am excited.

Just wanted to tell you I think you sight is wonderful. I also have a question . I know you only suggest 6 dozen cookies, but soesn't it depend on the number of people you invite so everyone gets at least of 3 kinds? If so how many dozen do you suggest? Thanks Denise

I have been trying to find the retired Pampered Chef Cookie Cooling Rack because of its size, small openings, non-stick, requires little storage room, etc. Can you tell me where I might find one? I do not want the current one offered by Pampered Chef has it has raised legs. When I asked for this product on a search engine, your website came up so I am assuming that you might have one for sale or know of somewhere where I can purchase one. Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.
