The first form of “cookie exchanges” began during the Middle Ages. During this period, spices and dried exotic fruits were becoming increasingly popular in baking methods. Given their exoticism and price, families could only afford to bake cookies at Christmastime. They shared these special treats with family, friends, and neighbors. Learn more about the medieval history of the Christmas cookie and the origins of the festive treat we all know and love.
There’s no better way to celebrate the holiday season than with tasty holiday cookies shared with friends and family. Whether you prefer sugar cookies, gingerbread cookies, snickerdoodles, or peanut butter cookies, spend some time baking a batch in honor of National Cookie Exchange Day!
