cookie exchangeIf you're new to the Cookie Exchange--you'll jump start your knowledge base from CE newbie to CE expert.

For the new and long time readers of my website, cookie-exchange.com (15+ years) - there's a wealth of information in this book - that is not on the website.

About 80% of the content of 'how to host' a CE on the website was originally written and posted in 1997. The Cookie Party Cookbook: The Ultimate Guide to Hosting a Cookie Exchange was published in 2010 and represents my now twenty plus years of experience as well as the experiences of those who shared with me.

This book truly earns its title "The Ultimate Guide", as it's like an encyclopedia of the cookie exchange. 352 pages, chockful of thousands of great CE party ideas and tips, enough to keep you going with fun, new ideas for many years, plus over 170 recipes. This book weighs nearly 2lbs and is the culmination of all I've learned in the last two and half decades of hosting.
