The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap - Year Two!

 It's baaaaaack!

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

I participated in this last year and it was so much fun! And honestly, who doesn't like getting surprises in the mail - especially when they are fabulous cookies! What happens with this cookie swap is that you get the addresses of three other bloggers and send them each one dozen of the cookie you've decided to make. In return, you will also get three shipments (all one dozen each) from three other bloggers so you can test out their cookies. Once all the cookies have been received, you then blog about your recipe so that all can see how you made them (and even try making these themselves). How fun, right? I think it is! I definitely don't need three dozen cookies around tempting me during the holiday season, so I sure hope that Ryan, my family and colleagues at work can help me eat them. 

Now comes the question - What type of cookie should I send out? It can not be a cookie I've made and blogged about before. I am thinking a fun and new cookie. A cookie no one would expect. I have a few ideas up my sleeve, but does anyone have any recommendations? Here are the recommendations I have from my family & friends so far: coconut thumbprint cookies filled with carrot cake jam, fig cookies and these really fun sugar sparkle cookies. I am kinda leaning towards a bar cookie though. I don't know why, but it seems to be calling my name. So many cookies. So many choices!

Shipments go out on Friday, December 5th with the recipe posted to my blog by Wednesday, December 12th!
