Have you ever attended or hosted a Christmas cookie exchange? Ya’ll, they are SO much festive holiday fun! Picture this: a huge room filled with the best Christmas cookies, all baked with love! Friends gathered, chocolate and ginger and cinnamon fill the air. It’s basically cozy goodness wrapped up in a gathering/party. You feel me? But if you want the “real” definition, just read below. Mmmm k?

What is a cookie exchange?

A cookie exchange is one of the easiest ways to celebrate the holidays with a group of friends. The best part is, cookie swaps don’t require a lot of planning like many holiday parties do.

The “rules” of a cookie exchange are simple:

  1. Each person attending brings one variety of homemade cookies. The host usually coordinates to make sure that there are no duplicates.
  2. Most often, the arrangement is to bake a dozen cookies for each guest, but that isn’t a hard set rule. If there are a lot of people attending the party, everyone can agree to bring a half dozen or even just one cookie per guest.
  3. The batches of cookies are packaged into individual bags, with the Christmas cookie recipe attached.
  4. The bags of cookies are swapped, so when you leave the party, you will have the same amount of cookies you originally baked, but a variety of different cookies! You will be stocked with delicious cookies to last you through the holidays.

Merrymaking FUN and tasty, right?! Corny Cotter approved!

But not everyone who attends a cookie exchange is vegan or gluten free. What do you do then?

EASY! You throw your own cookie exchange... with everyone bringing Vegan Christmas cookies to share! This can be done and it’s WAY easier than you think, and DELICIOUS!

How do you make cookies without eggs?

It’s easy to make vegan and egg free cookies – you just need substitutes for the dairy products and the eggs.

Depending on the recipe you want to make, the egg substitute might be a chia egg or flax egg, To make vegan cookies, use a nut or rice milk to replace cow’s milk in the recipe, or use coconut oil or avocado instead of butter.
