The Feisty Foodie, KC, and I started a new tradition last year: a cookie swap. Mainly it was an excuse for the girls to get together for the holidays. So why not add some sweets to our annual dinner together? Last year I only baked one type of cookie. However, this year, I wanted to challenge myself make several. Not only that but I wanted to try all new recipes. So when my food magazines started coming in the mail and websites started featuring holiday recipes, I scoured them to find what peaked my interest. I ended up picking homemade nutter butters, lemon sandwich cookies, and chocolate chubbies (recipes to come at a later post).
In return, the girls went even more all out! Look at that pretty festive wrapping. But wait, there's more.
Look at the cookies! These are from KC. From left to right, Mexican Wedding cookies, a chocolate dipped heart shaped butter cookie, chocolate dipped pretzels, and 2 types of jam thumb print cookies. I really enjoyed the variety that was in the box. Some soft, some sweet, some salty, some chocolatey, and some fruity.
