Hi Robin! I saw your cookie exchange on a Food Network special. I have held cookie exchanges in the past and love them! Unfortunately, I have not been able to make them an annual event, but I try to have them as often as possible. Thanks for your wonderful ideas and I'm very glad that I have found your website. Happy holidays and of course, happy baking! Carol Ann (The Cookie Queen of Quincy, MA!)

Really brought back sweet memories! I belonged to a swap in St. Louis at my sister's. We met for dinner at her house and then the swap. It was a trip of 120 ml. for me but worth it. Due to health issues I can't drive and really miss the group.

robin, this is the second year in a row I have checked to see what you were up to for your cookie exchange to see what we could do for our cookie exchange. We have had one for five years. Last year we borrowed invitation rules from you and also some recipes and a game. This year we borrowed a game from your site. Thanks for taking time to share your ideas. You seem like a person i would like to know!

This year will be be my fourth cookie exchange. I did not have it last year due to roof leak that damaged my dining room. When I did not have it last year I had people calling asking if they had not followed the instuctions and weren't being invited back. People take this seriously and want to be invited back!!! Your web site was the one I went to for ideas to get started. My first 2 years I let people bring guests. The exchange has grown to over 20 people. And I have about 10 people who just come for the food. Thanks for your great ideas. This has become a traditon that everyone looks forward to. Hopefully I will remember to take pictures this year and send you some.

Hi Robin, Thanks so much for this web. My husband printed out your cookie baking secrets for me last year. I have one question - is the parchment paper to substitute for greasing the cookie sheets? I have never used parchment paper for baking before. Thanks.
