White Chocolate Orange Cranberry Cookies and the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

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!

This year, my matches that I
sent these yummy cookies out to were:
Rachel, Teacher by Day – Chef
by Night (http://www.teacher-chef.com)
Jillian, Goodbye Fat, Hello
Jill (http://www.jillbobaggins.net)
And last, but not Least (and
a food blogger I am very familiar with J)
