Iced Sugar Cookies:

Ordinarily, cookie swap desserts have been decked out in the traditional holiday colors for decades: reds, greens, golds... This year, think outside the box! Adding a pop of color to the timeless sugar cookie can be a fun way to take your treat to the next level. Use neon or pastel icing in pinks, blues, yellows and lavenders, and make your cookies stand out and bring lots of holiday cheer!


Bagged Cookies:

Cookie Swaps are the perfect way to gather with loved ones, reconnect with old friends and even meet new people. Taking extra precaution this year at cookie swaps is necessary. Package them to allow for safer swapping. Adding a personal note, a bow or a festive bag to your cookies is the perfect way to show extra holiday spirit!


Chocolate Chip Cookie:

The best tip we can give for preparing cookies is to make them with love… but other than that we highly recommend the use of parchment paper! Whether you are sticking with the classics or are branching out and trying something new, you will avoid the hassle of clean up if the baking sheet is lined with parchment paper.


Cookies and Cream Fudge:

Who said cookie swaps were only for cookies?! A dessert like this Cookies and Cream Fudge is sure to steal the show at any cookie swap. Don’t be afraid to make a treat other than a cookie this year that is also easily swappable!


Linzer Cookies:

Our Wholesome Pantry Organic Jams and Fruit spreads come in numerous flavors such as strawberry, fig and mixed berry and are perfect for filling Linzer Cookies! If you love these classic cookies, then this twist is sure to be your new jam!


Chocolate Chocolate Cookies:

Holiday baking is a time to make memorie, cherish these sweet moments and try not to rush the process. Remember to let your cookies cool before icing them!
