In addition to baking three types of cookies, organizing the party and inviting us over early so I could bake my cookies in her oven, Susan made all kinds of appetizers for the cookie exchange party. We did not go hungry, that's for sure!
I was able to bake my Russian Teacake cookies in Susan's big oven. My other contribution was a batch of refrigerator cookies which I made in the 5th wheel. This was my second year to take part in the Cookie Exchange Party. It is so much fun to see all the different types of cookies and then share the bounty amongst our families.
After all the trays of cookies were placed on the dining table, each of us took our plates or trays and walked around the table, picking up one cookie at a time, continuing around the table until all the cookies were gone.

On the tray in the photo below, the chocolate with green frosting items are Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and peanut butter bells stuck together with chocolate frosting into a chocolate/ peanut butter tower. They were pretty good!
