What's better than sending three food bloggers home baked cookies in the mail? RECEIVING them!!
I was SO excited to be a part of this years #fbCookieSwap. I had a wonderful time baking cookies for my three recipients. I'll post the recipe in a minute, but right now, I'd like to give a great big Yummilicious thanks to Elizabeth for the "Food of the Gods" cake, Sarah for the Java Chocolate Snowcap cookies and Lishie for the Hot Cocoa with Marshmallow cookies! I'm happy to report that everything has been delightfully enjoyed!
I made miniature cinnamon roll cookies for my end of the swap, and according to
my engorged stomach the recipients, they were a yummilicious treat!
I used the recipe I found at Taste of Home to make these cookies. It was super fun and incredibly easy too. My short patience loved the fact that the dough didn't require any chilling before being panned onto the cookie sheets.
Because I was shipping the cookies to recipients on the east coast of the U.S. and I live in Wisconsin, I needed a coating on them that would set and ship well, so I used melted white chocolate instead of a traditional powdered sugar glaze, and it worked out wonderfully! I think royal icing would also have held up well for shipping purposes.
A huge shout out to Lindsay from Love & Olive Oil and to Julie from The Little Kitchen for making this event so successful and delicious! I look forward to participating again next year. If you're interested in joining next year's fun, get onto the mailing list here.
