What is the purpose of a cookie exchange?
If you’ve never been to a cookie exchange, sometimes called a cookie swap party, you should go. They’re great! Not only do you get to sample a bunch of cookies while you’re there…usually while indulging in some festive cocktails or hot cocoa….but you also get to pack up several of each kind to take home with you.
Make one batch of cookies and leave with a sample platter of many! Score!
Why do we leave Cookies for Santa?
If you still have some cookies leftover come Christmas Eve, leave a few out for Santa. The big guy likes his sweets!
This holiday tradition of leaving out cookies started in the United States during the Great Depression as a way for parents to instill gratitude in their children for the gifts they are about to receive. It’s a revision of an even older tradition that you can read all about here.
Be sure to leave him a tall glass of almond milk to wash it all down.
Cookie exchange, holiday parties, Christmas desserts, friend and neighbor gifts, offerings for Santa…whatever the event, these vegan cookies recipes are sure to please!
