During the holiday season there are many a party to attend. Some themed, some require a small gift, and my favorite one of all, the cookie swap! These parties usually come with a warning “If you come without cookies, you leave without cookies.” Or “cookies in swap must be homemade”

Here are some of my favorite cookie recipes to help you right along with your experimental cookie extravaganza! First off, Nutella soft bake chocolate chip cookies. A delicious twist on the usual chocolate chip cookie.


Another out of the ordinary cookie that I’ve tried and actually really enjoyed, were peach cobbler cookies. All the greatness of cobbler in a hand held treat!


If you are more of the short cut type of baker, try out this cookie hack. Using boxed cake mix to make cookies takes out over half the work of measuring out all your ingredients!


And if you are more into the no bake cookie deal. Try out these 4 ingredient peanut butter cheesecake balls. Similar to fudge balls but with a spin! Feel free to substitute other flavors if there are allergies or preferences.


Now that you have a few inspirational cookie recipies to get you started on your cookie swap journey, make sure to show me what you end up making by tagging @styleastronaut #styleastronaut on social media!
