Thanksgiving is in two and half week and then the holiday season will be upon us. Barbee Cookies wants to help take a little of the stress out of the holidays by doing some of the baking for you.
Nobody can resist a big plate of cookies – especially Barbee Cookies! Whether you want a tray of whimsically decorated turkeys and pilgrims or you need a tray of assorted cookies like our famous Cinnamon Roll Cookie or any of our other wonderful cookies for a holiday cookie exchange, Barbee Cookies can design a beautiful arrangement of cookies that will be perfect for all of your entertaining needs. Don’t forget that Barbee Cookies also make yummy, much appreciated gifts for those hard-to-buy-for individuals.
Wouldn’t a beautifully decorated cookie cake look lovely on your Thanksgiving dessert table? Barbee Cookies can bake a cookie cake that will rival even Grandma’s pumpkin pie. Just don’t tell Grandma!
Hosting a Christmas cookie exchange is a great way to kick off the holiday season, reconnect with friends and get plenty of delicious cookies for Christmas and beyond. Here are a few tips for throwing a perfectly delicious party.
Because the holidays get so busy so fast, plan on having your cookie exchange around the first week of December and be sure to send out invitations two-three weeks in advance.
Decide how many cookies you want everyone to bring; they will leave with the same number of cookies that they brought. Since many cookie recipes make at least three dozen, that would not be asking too much – especially if Barbee Cookies does the baking for you.
For a fun, no-hassle party game, give each guest a candy cane necklace upon arrival, along with the instructions that she is not to say the word COOKIE during the party. If someone hears someone else say it, they get to take that person’s necklace. Whoever has the most necklaces at the end of the game wins a prize.
Upon arrival, offer guests a steaming cup of hot cider or fragrant wassail. Check back next week for a special recipe.
Most of all, have fun and enjoy plenty of Barbee Cookies!
Be sure to order those party trays and Thanksgiving cookies and cookie cakes soon!
