Gingerbread cookies made for a cookie exchange party. I was invited to this party and the invitation gave instructions to bring 3 dozen of your favorite cookie. The host had a beautiful holiday table for everyone to put their cookies on. After a beautiful light lunch the party host gave us each an empty tin tray (very cute holiday ones) and we went to the table and put 5 of each kind of cookie on our tray (since there were 7 people at the party). So you bring 3 dozen cookies, and you leave with the same number, but when you leave you have an assortment.
