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!

White Chocolate Cranberry Orange Cookies

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!

White Chocolate Cranberry Orange Cookies – Pin it!

Of course, the great thing about a cookie swap is the fact that I too will be receiving cookies from someone who was secretly given my name to send them too! I’m excited about getting my cookies in the mail from my secret blogger and can’t wait to share with you what I received!
Do you like to participate in cookie swaps over the holidays? It’s such fun to do so, I’ve done it at my workplace many times and its such fun to get to try what other people love to make themselves. Not to mention, you get a whole lot of different kinds of cookies and only had to bake one type yourself!
What would be your favorite cookie to make and swap for the holidays?
