Cookie swaps aren’t just for the holidays anymore!
As talented baker Julia Usher reveals, cookies are infinitely adaptable to different party themes and times of year, resulting in scores of delightful possibilities. Among Cookie Swap’s eight parties are a kids’ summer bash, a spooky Halloween fest, and a classic Christmas swap. Better yet, Cookie Swap shows readers how to create one-of-a-kind events -- all without breaking the bank or enlisting high-priced caterers or party designers.
A cookie swap has all the same traits that make a potluck so effortless to host. Guests share in the baking and cost burden. The exchange of treats leads to more variety, with less work. And, armed with goody baskets or boxes, guests are sure to spotlessly clean up.
Julia M. Usher, a celebrated pastry chef and food writer, has designed desserts for Chocolatier, Better Homes and Gardens, Bon Appétit, and Modern Bride, and such books as Vera Wang on Weddings and For the Love of Food. Usher is a James Beard Foundation Journalism Awards finalist and a director of the International Association of Culinary Professionals (IACP).
