Vintage Christmas cookie swap 2011 was a success!

A huge thanks to everyone who made it out for our first annual vintage Christmas cookie swap. We had 11 different kinds of cookies represented, one of which was made without modern technology – no Kitchenaid ! Here’s what the kitchen looked like pre-party:

And here’s what people brought:

Ninjabread, the most creatively named cookie of the evening

From left to right, we have chocolate Reese's peanut butter cup madness, molasses cookies, sweet rolls and chocolate croissants, Lemon Drops (with real lemon curd!), more delicious molasses cookies, and some gingerbread

Coconut macaroons and more gingerbread. Not pictured here: award-winning salty peanut butter chocolate chip cookies

It was great to chat with people about how they found and approached their vintage recipes (some needed some serious modern translation). It was also wonderful to meet Susan Johnston, one of the founders of Boston Food Swap! If you missed our vintage Christmas cookie swap, be sure to mark your calendar for their Cookie Swap for a Cause (benefitting kids with cancer) on December 18th at 2:00 p.m. in Fort Point. Find more information here.

Did you hold a cookie swap of your own? Have any vintage Christmas cookies you’d like to share? Email jennifer.ede@gmail.com and we’ll be sure to post them!
