St. Pete Vegan Food Swap is hosting a vegan Christmas cookie swap.
Saturday, December 8th, 2012
3:00-5:00pm, cookies need to be on the table by 3:30 to participate
held at St. Pete Community Acupuncture
14 18th Street South, St. Petersburg, FL 33712
WHAT TO BRING?
3 dozen (of the same flavor) of your favorite vegan Christmas cookie.
A separate container to take your cookies home in. The container you bring your cookies in will be used to display your cookies.
A recipe card for the cookies you brought.
OPTIONAL TO BRING:
Extra cookies to sample.
A vegan savory snack. Light refreshments will be provided.
Extra copies of your cookie recipe.
HOW THE COOKIE SWAP WORKS:
After all the cookies are placed on the cookie table, we will take turns introducing ourselves and share a story about our cookies. We then will walk around the cookie table with our empty containers, taking a few cookies, until all the cookies are gone. At the end, you will end up with an assortment of cookies you can share with your family and friends.
DO I HAVE TO MAKE A CHRISTMAS COOKIE?
No. I am not going to be a stickler and make people bake Christmas cookies. It is preferred but if you have a favorite vegan cookie recipe that you like to bake then go ahead and make that. When you sign up please state what type of cookie you are making so we don't end up with duplicates. But no worries if we do!
CAN I BAKE MY COOKIES THE DAY OF THE SWAP?
According to many cookie swap sites, you should bake your cookies at least 3 days in advanvce. This is so the cookies have time to 'dry out.' Freshly baked cookies are fragile and tend to crumble with frequent handling at cookie swaps.
CAN I MAKE MORE THAN ONE TYPE OF COOKIE?
Of course you can! Just make sure to make 3 dozen of each type so everyone will get a chance to bring your cookies home.
I WANT TO PARTICIPATE BUT I ALREADY HAVE PLANS THAT DAY?
If you can't make it but still want to participate, send someone else in your place. As a thank you, you might end up having to share your plate with them.
DO I HAVE TO BE VEGAN TO PARTICIPATE?
No, anyone can participate as long as the cookies they bring are vegan.
NOT SURE WHAT TO MAKE?

I WANT TO PARTICIPATE BUT I AM GLUTEN-FREE?
I am encouraging gluten-free vegans to participate. There will be a separate cookie table for you! Please state you are gluten free when you sign up, so I can let other gf's know.
