Info graphic of holiday sweet season

Once known around these parts as Christmas Cookie Week, The Sweetest Season Cookie Exchange is The Speckled Palate’s yearly celebration of sugar, butter and cookies.

And I’m inviting you to be a part of it, too, because cookies = love, and the holiday season is all about sharing and spreading love.

A yearly celebration of sugar and butter. A gathering of Internet friends around a virtual cookie table. A way to make new friends, share new recipes and prepare for the upcoming holiday baking season. (Because we all know that’s TOTALLY a thing!)

If you’re interested, fill out this form so we can keep you informed as the dates draw nearer.

2021’s cookie exchange will be held from Monday, December 5 through Friday, December 9, 2022. You can share as many or few cookie recipes in those days as your heart desires. During the week, Susannah and I will keep a running list of the recipes shared. And then once the week is over, we will post a round-up of all the fabulous recipes.

Bake some cookies, take some pretty photos of them and share them at your blog. When you’ve posted the recipe during The Sweetest Season Cookie Exchange, fill out this form with your post information so I can add it to the running list of posts, as well as include it in a round-up post, which will be shared the week after the exchange.

When you share your recipes on social media channels, tag them with #sweetestseasoncookies so we can all follow along!

Anyone who has a blog can participate. Heck, even if you don’t have a food blog, you can participate… though it might be a little challenging to share your recipes and images if you don’t have a blog to share it on.
