When hosting a cookie exchange party, invite friends who also enjoy holiday baking to bring a large batch of one type of cookie to your home. Everyone will go home with a great tasting cookie platter, and new delicious cookie recipes.

Have you ever had the expensive rainforest cracker? I have found a great substitute at Trader Joe's. Their raisin rosemary crisps are half the price of what you will pay in the grocery store, $3.99 for a 5.3oz box. I will tell you they sell out quite often, especially around the holidays. So if you see them, you may want to stock up. Serve them with goat cheese and fig spread (buy that at Trader Joe's as well) and you have a great easy appetizer. They are the first things gone at every party.
It is seriously one of the things I most appreciate and look forward to each night. A real luxury. My kids love it as well. They each got one for Christmas last year.
