Cookbook Club: Cookie Swap!

For this month's Cookbook Club, we will be holding a cookie swap!

Each participant should bring 4 dozen of their favorite homemade holiday cookie (a dozen will be to eat/taste during the event, and 3 dozen will be for participants to take home). You can choose any cookie recipe, but we will have a few copies of the following cookbooks at the Reference desk if you need inspiration:
