So tonight I'm hosting a cookie swap here at my home for friends from church and anyone else they may invite. As before (I did this a couple of years ago), I'm keeping it pretty low-key and relaxed. No competition or anything, just a fun time to visit, eat yummy appetizers, sip mulled cider and cranberry juice, and exchange some cookies. In addition to bringing a specified number of cookies, I'm asking each lady to bring along a "sweet thought": a memory, story, testimony or favorite Scripture to share. It should be fun.

The flavors of chocolate and orange together are so festive! They bring to mind those nifty chocolate oranges that are to be unwrapped and eaten a wedge at a time. And these yummy chocolate dipped orange smiles that I make each Christmas and that are so delightful on cookie trays.
So yesterday I baked these cookies. I was interrupted in the mixing of the dough and forgot about adding in the chocolate chips. I had baked about half the cookies when I remembered. So I used half the amount of chocolate chips and mixed them in with the remaining dough. I will let the ladies at the swap decide which they think is better!
