Host a Holiday Cookie Swap

Too busy to do much holiday baking?
Then host a cookie exchange party.
Invite your girlfriends over and tell each to bring at least 2 dozen cookies to sweet treats.  Have a table set aside with empty trays and let your guest place their treats on the trays. Make sure there are plenty of treats to sample and some holiday beverages.
Plan to have a couple "door prizes" such as a cookie cookbook, a pretty apron, or a cookie jar.  Before they leave they can pick out and take home as many cookies as they contributed.from the wonderful selection.

The Visionary was the signature cocktail served at Glamour’s Women of the Year Awards
1.5 ounces Baileys® Original Irish Cream
3 ounces brewed Chai Tea
Raw brown sugar
Cinnamon stick

Brew a pot of chai tea. Add 2 teaspoons of raw brown sugar for every cup. Stir until dissolved. Fill a coffee mug with chai tea and add Baileys. Stir with a cinnamon stick.

This recipe contains no more than 0.6 fl. oz. of alcohol per serving.
Offer this drink during a cookie exchange party with the girls.
