Finnish almond log cookies are soft, buttery almond meal cookies, rolled in colored sugar and laced with slivered almonds. They will brighten up and sweeten up your holiday cookie platter!
I’m a bit obsessed with holiday cookie recipes. After all, cookies are loaded with carbs, and eating carbs is my favorite
addiction food activity.
That’s one reason that I’m excited to participate in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! Finnish Almond Log Cookies are a perfect choice for the cookie swap, not only because I love eating them, but because they ship so well!
The rules of the swap are easy: Each of the participants bakes 3 dozen cookies, then ships 1 dozen to each of the three bloggers we’re assigned to swap with. It’s fun to package up and ship out cookies knowing that your recipient has no idea where their cookies are coming from, and equally fun receiving 3 boxes of cookies yourself. Last year, I made cinnamon roll cookies. This year, I wanted to try something really unique but equally tasty, and something that wouldn’t be too much in danger of crumbling to pieces during shipment. I decided on these Finnish almond log cookies.
The best part about this year’s swap is that the cookie swap organizers, Lindsay and Julie , partnered up with OXO, a huge supporter for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. So all of the participants paid a small registration fee and every dollar went directly to the charity. How awesome is that?
When I give to others, it warms my heart inside, so I truly hope that my recipients, Deanna, Chris, and Karen, enjoyed their Finnish almond log cookies! Special thanks goes out to the wonderful bloggers who sent ME cookies this year. Thank you, Amanda, Jessica, and Kathy for the delicious treats you lovingly sent my way!
