What is more fun than 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! I love getting the names of the bloggers I am going to be sending cookies to, checking out their websites, and deciding what cookies to make to send them in the mail!
These White Chocolate Orange Cranberry Cookies are perfect for the holiday season, not to mention a cookie that Grumpy also loves! As a matter of fact, I had to play it safe and make extra cookies because I knew that when Grumpy saw them he would be all hands on!
This year, my matches that I sent these yummy cookies out to were:
- Rachel, Teacher by Day – Chef by Night
- Jillian, Goodbye Fat, Hello Jill
- Jenni, The Gingered Whisk
I hope they love these cookies as much as Grumpy and I did!
