Reminder: Cookie Exchange on Monday

Monday, December 14th • 7-9 pm
The Lutheran Home, 7500 W. North Ave.

Bring 6 dozen of the same home-made cookies, and an empty container for collecting your new variety of cookies.

Want more?  Bring more.  Each year we have a few folks who make 2 or 3 cookies recipes – bringing 6 dozen of each recipe.  They, of course, take home just as many cookies as they bring.  Works great if you’re giving cookies as gifts.

Broken Cookies?  Bring them, and any extras, for taste-testing.

DO RSVP to Dawn at 727-2873. Let us know what kind of cookies you are bringing. We’re hoping to avoid duplicates. If you leave a message and want a call back, DO leave your phone number.

Every year in December, in place of our monthly board meeting, TETNA hosts a Cookie Exchange. This is an evening to relax and enjoy visiting with our neighbors. This year’s 6th Annual Cookie Exchange is on Monday, December 14th, 7 p.m., at the Lutheran Home. 
If you’ve joined us in the past–you’re marking this on your calendar. If you haven’t–get out a pen & circle 
the date! You won’t want to miss the fun & the treats. Contact Sarah Hunt-Frank if you need more information.

Here’s what you do:

    • Pick your favorite cookie recipe.
    • Make six dozen cookies (often a double batch) and bring them to the exchange. Do NOT separate or package cookies in bunches. DO bring a large container to take your mix of cookies home in.
 Extra or broken cookies?…bring them to the exchange for nibbling.

      Here’s what you get:

        • A wonderful assortment of cookies – with the simple effort of one recipe.
        • A few hours off to really enjoy the giving spirit of the holiday season. Taste test some cookies while sharing laughter & stories with your neighbors. Kids are welcome too.
        • Bonus Option—Want to give assortments of homemade cookies as gifts during the holidays? Need more than just 6 dozen? Easy answer. Make two, or three different recipes of cookies, a batch of 6 dozen each. Bring 12 dozen, take 12 dozen. Bring 18 dozen, take 18 dozen. You choose.

          PS—Do you have a friend or family member who loves cookies but doesn’t live in the neighborhood? Invite them to join us. Everyone is welcome.
