I've never participated in a cookie exchange during the Christmas season. But some of you may enjoy doing so. Here is a delightful edible cookie necklace tutorial (update : line no longer available) by the Daily Mixer blog that's sure to please little "cookie monsters".

The beautifully made cookies are strung on baker's twine which I assume means it's food safe. Check out the tutorial for all sorts of tips including the royal icing recipe. The royal icing has to be the hard kind.
