The holiday cookie exchange is, in our humble opinion, one of the brighter ideas to ever come along for the holidays. Instead of slaving away over four, five, ten sorts of cookies, just make one big batch of one sort then swap away with creative friends. Everyone's work is multiplied to delicious effect.

If you're headed to a cookie exchange, or just want some fresh inspiration for your cookie plate this year, here are ten terrific recipes. Five are classic — chocolate-dipped macaroons, soft snickerdoodles. Then we switch it up with five fresh picks, like a graham cracker and chocolate chunk cookie, and millionaire's shortbread. Something for everyone, just as it should be, at the cookie exchange.
