Has any of you ever done a cookie-exchange party at Christmas time? I am having one this year and just doing initial planning now. Any clever thoughts/ideas? Thanks. :)

Have someone dress up like a giant cookie and dance to Rockin' round the Christmas tree.
Hang cookies as Christmas ornaments and maybe have a contest as to which cookie makes the best ornament.

One thing I did once, was included in the Cookie Exchange Invitation:
I assigned one ingredient to each guest-things you'd add to a cookie batter etc.-and they had to bring a small description/history of that ingredient, and other uses for it. Not only was it interesting to hear about & helpful-each guest read her info during the 'refreshments' part of the exchamge.
Another time-we made the faux dough and every guest had to roll out & paint & decorate a cookie ornament & date it on the back-a nice remembrance of the party. The ornaments baked while the rest of the cookie exchange was in full swing.

The above linked page has a sample invitation; they suggest adding the "rules" on a separate sheet. I would mention on the invitation that fact.

I seem to remember a discussion on such exchanges years ago, some people thought that only very gourmet high quality cookies should be brought, not easy recipes; other people thought, who cares ?, as long as everyone had fun.

I personally feel it's the event that is fun, whatever cookies you end up with is a bonus if they are really good.
