What is more fun that a cookie swap? How about the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap? This is the second year I have participated and this year was just as fun as last!
This year I decided to make the White Chocolate Orange cookies. Then I decided to make it even more festive and add dried cranberries to the mix.
To me, these flavors (and
colors) just scream the season J . I killed a few birds with this stone for
this post – meaning, the cookie recipe itself is one of my assignments as an
Allrecipes Allstar Brand Ambasador. The
recipes we are trying are compliments of Nestle and are found on
allrecipes.com. I was really hoping for
cookie assignments for December, and I got my wish!
