The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2014

December 18, 2014 - by Preeti

For the second year in a row, we participated in the yummy Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! For a few dollar donation (that goes to the charity Cookies for Kids’ Cancer), hundreds of bloggers participate in a blind cookie swap.

You bake your favorite cookie and ship it to three bloggers on your list. This year, I made christmas pinwheel sugar cookies and a Swedish cookie called "Martha's Chocolate Cookie".

The pinwheel cookies were super fun and easy. I usedThe Art of the Cookie sugar cookie base. Then I split the batter into three and dyed one pink and one green and third batter left as is.

The next part is a bit tricky. After chilling the dough for at least 30 minutes, roll out each dough color into 1/8th inch.

Place the doughs on top of each other and use the rolling pin to flatten and stick the doughs together.

Gently roll the dough into a log.

Roll the log into loads of non-pareil sprinkles. Sprinkles make the world go round!

Refrigerate the dough and then cut into 1/4 inch pieces.

Bake for 7-12 minutes at 350F (my oven is temperamental).

When all done, enjoy with a glass of milk.

And for the even more fun part...the cookies I received! Lynsey Peek sent gingerbread cookies in a festive Christmas box.

From a blogger that I still don't know (if this is you, please email me!), I received a hilarious "Eat more Cookies" box with cinnamon roll cookies. It's a cinnamon roll in cookie format.

And from Natasha, oatmeal cranberry cookies.

OMG, the cookies were all so good. Nom nom nom.
