Simplify your holiday baking by hosting a cookie swap. Invite a group of friends, and have each person make enough of one kind of cookie to share. At the party, sample the treats, then trade and package them in appealing assortments. Everyone leaves with finished gifts -- and plenty of new recipes. Martha Stewart offers 8 steps to hosting the perfect cookie swap meet. Or check out Robin Olson's site, too.
