Cookie Exchanges are a fond memory of mine. My grandma hosted a HUGE cookie exchange every year. They went all out and baked 1 dozen cookies for each person in attendance. I remember my mom coming home with and entire laundry basket full of plates of cookies. That is heaven for a little kid. I remember going with my mom on a few occasions when my dad was working and just drooling over all the cookies. I also felt super special being there because it was a no-kids event...but with it being . . .
A few year ago my husband and I took an adult only getaway to Las Vegas. My mom graciously flew out from Utah to spend some one on one time with our son and to let us have a mini-vacation.

This is a recipe I've been making for so long. Im pretty sure it happened because I had some leftover honey butter from making a pan of corn bread and then decided to toss some of the honey butter combo in with the carrots.
