My First Cookie Exchange

Well I have always thought a cookie exchange would be so neat. I loved the fact that you could get some really neat cookies and only make one really neat one yourself. So I was so excited when our church said they were going to do a cookie exchange during our Christmas party. I looked for over a month for the neatest recipe even though I knew that it would be hard. I knew though that I would be getting some nice cookies without the work. So finally I settled on a cookie that I saw on The Food Network Cookie special. They were Chocolate Peppermint Pinwheel Cookies. Now I have never made any cookie with this much work, but really it was not that hard and I think they came out nice. We were suppose to bring 4 dozen cookies and take 4 dozen home, but it really did not work that way. Turns out that there were only three desserts for the Christmas dinner so people started eating the cookies. I did bring some home, but I guess I was a little disappointed because I had worked so hard and the cookie exchange did not turn out anything like I thought it would. But I really think my cookies were good and I was really proud of myself for making the effort to try something new and a little more difficult.

Oh no! I'm so sorry the cookie exchange didn't work out! Those are pretty neat cookies though.

Maybe someone will organize it better next year.
