Have you ever heard of a Christmas Cookie Club? How about if you and several of your friends and family members made one cookie recipe each week, starting the end of October? If you did, you will have about 8 or 9 different kinds of cookies in your freezer just waiting for you at Christmas.
You can start this in November as well! You can do one recipe each week or even two!
On your blog, website, Facebook page or whatever it is that you keep, post 1 cookie recipe each week.
If you are not computer savvy, you can still do this. Instead of using email or blogs, you can call your family and friends each week to let them know what the cookie recipe is. You could also mail the recipe using USPS!
Then you and your “followers” make that recipe for that week. Make sure you freeze them and do not eat them all!
Take pictures of the cookies you make and encourage your followers to do the same. You can post them online!
It is a fun way to get your baking done before Christmastime and enjoy the Holiday!
