Description:

One of my favorite traditions of the Christmas season is making and decorating Christmas cookies with my family.

Now I am starting a family of my own and would enjoy trying somthing new in addition to my "old" recipes!!

In this swap you will have three partners and will send them each two different holiday cookie recipes that you use yourself.

This is specifically for COOKIE RECIPES but for hearts you might include an extra holiday recipe you'd like to share or a cookie cutter (-:.

This is a newbie friendly swap and international.

Why is this a SEWING swap?

MissAndree 08/11/2008 #

Should the recipes be printed on recipe cards, or can they be sent in any format?

Sorry for not answering sooner, I don't know how this got under SEWING but it is corrected now (-:.....I think the recipes should be on recipe cards...THANKS!!!

Baking cookies is one of my favorite activities at Christmas which is a wonderful time of year for me. My mother made Christmas special for everyone and now that she's gone, I'm trying to keep up her traditions.

And I collect cookie cutters, the weirder the shape the better. I have a few really old cutters too.

This is one of the best things of Christmas! The smell and flavors if holiday cookies! And to be able to make a recipe card to go with them - how fun!

I want to join this swap, but I never use recipe cards, but I'd be willing to make them for a partner--can it be a partner preference thing?

meggles 10/27/2008 #

I keep my recipes in a binder, so if it's not inconvenient for my partner, I'd prefer to have my recipes on a full sheet of paper, but cards would be fine, too.

Becky, me too, I love cookie cutters, vintage cookies are always a treasure to find. My friend recently bought me a stunning dragonfly.. I squealed with delight. I am going to love this swap!

CreativeMommyof4 10/28/2008 #

I miss all of the cooking baking and candy making I used to do with my grandmother. I love the thought of getting to share our recipes. I also have a binder for my recipes. That way I can take the page out and use it and they don't get dirty like all of my cards.

I would re-type and put the recipes in my book, so just send them any which way you want! This way I can use larger print for easier reading along with a sheet protector! Thank you!

I agree with those of you who place your recipes in a binder. My group that I swap recipes with all use an 8 x 8 albums and some use an 8 1/2 x 11 album for ease of reading too. I am happy to accomodate whatever my partner would like. They are all great!

I dont mind the format of the cookie recipes I receive ...some are to long to fit onto recipe cards if you include a picture, and if hand written several times mightbe easier to miss a step:) Love the metal cookie cutters the best but still like all in general.

elliott 10/31/2008 #

Id love for them to be on a 8 1/2 x 11 size, but really, it doesnt matter to me! So Im leaving it up to my partner. :)

toothfarie 10/31/2008 #

What a great response for this swap! I can't wait to assign partners!!! I hope everyone gets some great recipes! Remember, send something you make yourself (-:

Becky 11/ 1/2008 #

Hey! Hope everyone is doing well. I received an e-mail letting me know that I should get my partner. How do I go about that?

Becky

Becky 11/ 1/2008 #

OOPS, figured it out. WOO HOO!!!

I'll send it out shortly.

Becky

I don't mind if mine are typed or hand written on an 8 x 11.5 paper as well. I put them in a binder with a sheet cover! Happy Cookie Swappin'! ~A~

I got two international (Australian) partners. Since I am a newbie, I do not know if additional postage is required?

camelsamba 11/ 1/2008 #

NMCreatrix, go here to calculate international postage or here to see letter postage. For a 1 ounce letter (and 3 recipes, cards or on 8.5 x 11 paper, are probably under 1 ounce) you will need a 94c stamp. If you don't have a kitchen or postage scale and you're not sure about the weight, go in to the post office and have them weigh it.

Becky 11/ 2/2008 #

Will most of you be sending along cookie cutters?
