If you love to bake -- or just love to eat baked goods -- I've got an event for you.
I'm a huge fan of Swap.com and the Swapaholics - two fabulous, green companies who are partnered to host all sorts of swaps across the country. The Swapaholics put on awesome clothing swaps that I've been attending for the past year, and look forward to every few months! This holiday season, they're mixing it up and together with Boston Food Swap, they're hosting a cookie swap instead.
The concept is simple - bake a few dozen (or more!) of your favorite cookies, fill out this PDF document with your recipe and print it out, stick your baked goods in a Tupperware and head to the swap, which will take place on Sunday, December 18 from 2 PM to 5 PM at 281 Summer Street on the waterfront.
There are just under 115 spots open for the swap, so be sure to RSVP by claiming a ticket. The event is free for bakers or $20 for those who just want to snag some cookies without baking their own. All of the cookie recipes printed on the PDF I mentioned above will be posted to Facebook, so swappers can have the recipes once they get home to go along with their variety of cookies. Delish!
The best part of this event is that the Glad to Give campaign has pledged to donate 10 cents to Cookies for Kids With Cancer for every cookie that is swapped. That means the more the merrier, so spread the word!
For those who are vegan or just gluten- or nut-free there will be a section just for you, so don't skip out just because you're not the typical cookie consumer!
I can't wait to attend, I'll have to dig out my favorite cookie recipe for this one! For more information, check out the Facebook event for the cookie swap and claim your ticket on the EventBrite page.
Planning to attend the cookie swap? Done a food swap of your own in the past? Know of any similar events? Get your comment on!
