Children who leave their shoes out for Saint Nick on the eve of Saint Nicholas' Day (December 5) will find candy in them in the morning. But although finding candy in your shoe and eating it is appealing when you're six, it might not have the same draw when you're all grown up. Here's a fun and equally sweet way to celebrate: throw a cookie exchange party!

Here we've compiled a few stellar cookie recipes, some drinks to share while exchanging with friends, and a few savory snacks to prevent sugar overload as you taste each other's contributions:
