This weekend my family is getting together for our annual Christmas cookie exchange. Each year all the baking enthusiasts in our fam, meaning me, my mom, my sister and the kiddos, all come together for a serious Christmas cookies bake sesh. And when all is said and done, we get to take home our creations, cookie exchange style. Now typically my mom hosts, but since we recently moved into a new home, I'd like to give my new kitchen some action, so the exchange will be at my house this year. 

And I really want to pull out all the stops, so I plan on bringing a few new cookie recipes to the table. Sure, we'll make our family favorites, but I thought it would be fun to try something new too. And since I bet I'm not the only baker with a Christmas cookie exchange on the calendar this holiday season, I thought I would share a few of the exchange worthy cookie recipes that I'm going to treat my loved ones to this year!
