December Daily--Day 11--Cookie Swap

Last night, we had our 3rd annual Smith Girl's Cookie Swap at Mother and Daddy's house. Mother made Taco Soup for supper. While the boys were at work and the ballgame, the girls had fun decorating trees (as seen on Southern Hospitaility) and then swapping cookies. Katie Lee is really getting into all these "girls only" parties.
Mississippi Mud Cookies
Peanut Butter Cookies with a Kiss
M&M cookies

1 package of chocolate chip cookie mix
1 package (3oz) cream cheese, soft
3/4 c. confectioner's sugar
1/4 c. maraschino cherries, chopped

Make cookies according to package. When you take them out of the oven, make a deep impression in the center with a spoon. Cook completely.
Meanwhile, mix the cream cheese, sugar, and cherries together. Place a small spoonful in the center of each cookie. Store in the refrigerator.

Katie Lee, I think, tried them all, but loved the M&M's the best.

I had such a good time last night, and all of the cookies were so good. I think our trees look great too. I'm glad we started this tradition.
