This year, I again participated in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. My fellow food bloggers and I sent cookies to each other for the holidays. Not only does that mean a lot of tasty cookies being shared, but it also is a great way to support Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.
I always have a tough time finding just the right cookie for sending to the bloggers on my list. This year, I decided to make a little flavor twist on traditional chocolate chip cookies. The addition of a blend of some of my favorite spices is a simple way to add an extra bite of flavor to an otherwise traditional cookie.
I received some really fantastic cookies from Shrutika of The Sweet Skillet, Meg of Harmonious Belly, and Rebecca of The Princess and the Pea. Be sure to visit their blogs to get their recipes. And if you’re on Instagram, follow #fbcookieswap to see everyone’s cookie swap cookies. You’ll likely find plenty of new, tasty recipes to keep you busy baking this holiday season!
A special thanks to Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen for organizing the cookie swap again this year. Thanks also to our sponsors, OXO, Land O’Lakes, and Dixie Crystals. Together, we raised over $7000 for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer!
