Wayfair Homemaker Cookie Exchange

December 18, 2014

What Housewarming Party would be complete without cookies? This week a few Wayfair Homemakers and I rounded up some of our favorite cookie recipes to share with you. It is so much fun to “meet” and share ideas from other Wayfair Homemakers, and it is part of why I love partnering with them as a blogger. Perhaps you have a holiday cookie exchange or want something to package as tokens of appreciation? Hopefully I’ll give you a few recipes to add to your cookbook or menu.

Wayfair has a huge selection of kitchen appliances, gadgets, and utensils.

They are as easy to make as they are easy to eat.
