Throwback Thursday ~ The Cookie Exchange

It’s that time of year where food, especially sweets and other goodies, are in major abundance. It doesn’t matter what holiday you celebrate, or even if you don’t celebrate anything at all, everyone is sharing something good to eat. People especially love the cookie exchange!

According to The Food Timeline, cookie exchanges became popular during World War I. Cookie swaps, cookie trades, or cookie exchanges, were found in newspaper articles during that time and didn’t necessarily have anything to do with a holiday. The earliest one they have recorded is, 1917, “The Tri Kappas will have a bread, pie and cookie exchange at Montgomery Market Saturday at eleven o’clock.” —Fowler Benton Review [IN], October 11, 1917“. It’s a very interesting article. You should check it out.

Happy Holidays!
