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.

    I SO wish that I was more confident in my baking skills, I would have participated and hopefully have gotten these amazing cookies! But I don’t think someone would have liked getting my funky shaped, some overdone, some underdone cookies!!! :) Maybe next year…

    You know what they say, great minds think alike! What are the odds you and I would send out the same cookies for the swap?! LOVE IT! Although, yours are prettier with that chocolate drizzle. Great addition!

    If more things in life were stuffed with Snickers, I think we could attain world peace. Just sayin’.
