There is a brief interruption to our regularly scheduled programing. Today is the day I post about The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. Yum yum yum!
Sorry if you were expecting a liquor filled libation.
Now, back to the cookies. Since I had to send out three dozen cookies I had to pick a good one. However, it had to be something I hadn’t blogged about before either. It was hard.
I finally settled on making the crowd pleasing peanut butter snickers cookies. I first had these cookies when my best friend made them a few years ago. I immediately feel in love. A chewy caramely center mixed with the delicious flavor of peanut butter. These cookies can do no wrong.
I also received eggnog cookies from Hannah and a holiday shortbread cookies from Grandma Loy’s Kitchen. My third package is arriving a little late but I’m sure it’s going to be delicious. I hear it’s going to be chocolate cherry chip cookies from Meringue Bake Shop.
