When I asked for the recipe, it came in volumes of 20 or 25 dozen. Efforts to reduce the quantity and a few adjustments produced these cookies and we've been enjoying them ever since.</em></p> Fri, 13 Dec 2013 11:15:00 +0000 Julie Denesha 48190 at http://kcur.org Recipes From The Annual Hallmark Cookie Exchange [VIDEO] Hallmark Cookie Exchange Feeds Artistic Community http://kcur.org/post/video-hallmark-cookie-exchange-feeds-artistic-community <p></p><p>Since the mid-1960's, Hallmark Cards Inc. employees, past and present, and their spouses, have gathered each year - not for an exchange of greeting cards, but of cookies.</p><p>Hallmark, the 103-year-old Kansas City-based company, has about 11,000 employees around the world, including just over 3,000 in the metro area.</p><p>Donna Moore, a former employee, began working for Hallmark in 1962.
