best cookies for cookie exchange

I've already started thinking about planning a Christmas cookie exchange this year -and if my wily plans go well there will be two! Just moments ago I planted the idea seed for my daughter to plan one too. I feel slightly devious for planting that idea in her head - because my motivation is entirely selfish - MORE COOKIES!!

I know our whole family will benefit from eating all the delicious cookie exchange recipes her friends come with.  (You know Charlotte loves baking - she's shared lots of her lovely baking recipes here.)  Is there anything more charming than a plate full of beautiful Christmas cookies?

What are the best cookies for cookie exchange parties? Of course, anything goes - cookies are by definition tiny pieces of perfection! But the most fun comes from choosing really unique Christmas cookies - the kind that make your eyes light up with delight and taste fabulous.  The list that follows checks all those boxes: unique Christmas cookies for cookie exchange this year!
