Season's Greetings from ABS

Merry Christmas and happy holidays from the entire Automated Benefit Services staff!

May the coming month be filled with many enjoyable moments, positive reflections on the past year, and an optimistic outlook for the year ahead.

As 2014 comes to a close, we'd like to express gratitude to those agents and groups who have done business with us this year, and to encourage those new to ABS to include us in their business plan for 2015. 

The Holiday Cookie Exchange:
Old and New Favorites

A popular tradition in many groups is the annual holiday cookie exchange.


Looking to start one in your office?  Here are some exchange tips, as well as recipe suggestions:


  • Ask each guest to make a dozen cookies for every person in attendance, plus an extra dozen for sampling--participants will go home with several dozen in different flavors to enjoy or give as gifts.
  • Decide who will make what type cookie, coordinating ahead of time to avoid duplicates.
  • Each participant should bring copies of their cookie recipe to exchange along with the cookies.
  • Containers will be needed for taking the cookies home. Heavy duty plastic freezer bags will work for sturdy cookies; decorated cookies and more delicate shapes should be packaged in tins or sealable plastic containers.
