Holiday Cookie Party… baking cookies at its best.

our finished treats

Today, I had the pleasure of attending my friend Alison’s annual cookie baking/exchange party, hosted by Alison and her roommate Julie. The afternoon was spent enjoying a variety of appetizers, snacks, sweet treats, and libations.

Some of us chose to bring our cookies, some just to bake at the party, and some to have fun mixing and creating the sweet treats from start to finish. I mixed my cookies at home and baked them when I got to the party.

We had a great afternoon, enjoying our treats, chatting, and relaxing. And we all got to take home some of everyone’s sweet creations. Here are the results of our baking endeavors…

I had a really great time this afternoon. It was great to meet new people, catch up with good friends, and share some of our favorite holiday cookie treats and for a few, test drive new recipes they found. I’m looking forward to enjoying these treats over the next few days and sharing some of them at my book club meeting tomorrow. And I’m hoping to do more holiday baking in the next couple weeks.

Are you doing any holiday baking this year? What are your favorite holiday sweet treats?
