We are delighted to welcome you to a Christmas Cookie Exchange at Champaca Bookstore! We will be reading and baking from the book Dorie's Cookies by Dorie Greenspan along with culinary consultant and educator Prachi Grover.
The Cookie Exchange will take place in-person, on 1 December, Friday from 5:30 PM onwards at the Champaca Bookstore. You can each bring a batch you made from the book or from any cookie recipe of your choice! We will provide you with a hot beverage to go along with the cookies.

About the book:
James Beard Award-winner for Best Baking and Dessert Book 2017 - Over the course of her baking career, Dorie Greenspan has created more than 300 cookie recipes. Yet she has never written a book about them—until now. To merit her “three purple stars of approval,” every cookie had to be so special that it begged to be made again and again. Cookies for every taste and occasion are here. There are company treats like Portofignos, with chocolate dough and port-soaked figs, and lunch-box Blueberry Buttermilk Pie Bars. They Might Be Breakfast Cookies are packed with goodies—raisins, dried apples, dried cranberries, and oats— while Almond Crackle Cookies have just three ingredients. There are dozens of choices for the Christmas cookie swaps, including Little Rascals (German jam sandwich cookies with walnuts), Italian Saucissons (chocolate log cookies studded with dried fruit), and Snowy-Topped Brownie Drops. And who but America’s favorite baker could devise a cookie as intriguing as Pink-Peppercorn Thumbprints or as popular as the World Peace Cookie, with its 59 million Internet fans?
