Soon later, cookies became Christmastime customs, especially gingerbread cookies with cinnamon, nutmeg, and ginger.

Cookies of that era might also have contained nuts or dried fruit.

Cookie exchanges give people who love to bake a chance to try out new recipes and enjoy

Celebrate by hosting a cookie swap. Bake some cookies and have each visitor wrap to take home.

This cookie exchange can be done at work or school, host an after-hours party with wine and Christmas music.

Have everyone bring something, like butter, sugar, or flour, and then make the cookies together.

Everyone should bring a unique cookie recipe to share with others.
