What’s better than baking cookies? Eating cookies other people have baked! This year organize a cookie swap. To keep it pandemic proof, consider a couple of alternatives to the in-person exchange.
- Have everyone participating bake on a specific weekend, and then pick a time to drop the cookies off at respective houses, or find an outdoor spot to make the switch. You still get the benefit of all of the different recipes and can create cookie gift baskets the teachers will love. |
- Gather your ingredients and a handful of families or relatives and host a virtual cookie-making party! You can choose a specific recipe or two, and share it around in advance. Make sure everyone is set up to start with ingredients and a preheated oven at the start of the call, and get baking. As the host, you can lead the step-by-step but keep it light and casual. For little kids, one recipe is plenty. If you have older kids or you want to do a mom-night, take turns sharing tips and tricks as you dedicated a couple of hours to baking together.
