It’s likely no secret that I’m a bit obsessed with cookie recipes. After all, cookies are loaded with carbs, and eating carbs is my favorite
addiction food obsession.
That’s why I was all on board with participating in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap again this year, and I really wanted to make these Finnish Almond Log Cookies. Not only because I love eating cookies, but also because I love giving to others, and this year’s event gave me the opportunity to do just that!
The rules of the swap have each of the participants baking 3 dozen cookies, but we have to choose just one recipe to use for all 3 dozen. We were given names of 3 other bloggers who were participating, and 1 dozen cookies were shipped to each of them. It’s completely 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!
