There is plenty of time to organize one for yourself. Here's the plan...
I used this cute "Winter Holidays" Evite template for my invitation:
The rules are simple -
Ask for participants to list their cookie when they RSVP
Bake 1 dozen cookies for each participant + 1 dozen to sample during the party.
Bring cookies packaged in dozens to swap.
Bring enough copies of your recipe to share.
The hostess has only to provide refreshments since guests will snack on the cookies and the guests spend one afternoon baking several dozen of the same cookie and go home with several different dozen cookies. Many times, I come home and pop mine straight into the freezer for a future get together!
