What’s the best part of the holiday season? This year, I think so far it’s been the 2nd annual Food Bloggers Cookie Swap!
This is the first year I participated, and the way it works is that each blogger makes three dozen cookies and sends one dozen to three different bloggers. Then, each blogger receives three different delicious cookies!
And– money went to a good cause! When you signed up, you had to pay $4 but that $4 was donated to OXO’s Cookies for Kids’ Cancer program. They’re matching donations, dollar for dollar, up to $100,00- awesome!! Additionally, each participant got a Be a Good Cookie OXO Spatula! I heart my spatula!
I made ricotta cookies– they are one of my favorites! They are basically a sugar cookie but with cheese– can it get any better? Delicious!
My matches this year were:
Heather from Heather’s French Press — apparently, her kids loved my cookies- yay!
Rachel from Following in My Shoes
Elaine from Cooking to Perfection
I received cookies from:
Katie & John at Sew Woodsy
Katie at Katie’s Cucina
Dea from the Baking Robot
Thank you ladies for your delicious cookies! I tried them all and then brought them to a housewarming party- they were devoured!
I can’t wait to do this again next year!

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Cream butter and ricotta well. Add eggs one at a time. Mix in dry ingredients. Scoop onto cookie sheets (I use air bake ones so no spraying needed) using medium cookie scoop. Bake 12 minutes. Let cool.
Frost and decorate with sprinkles.
Blend butter and sugar. Stir in milk and vanilla until smooth. Add and mix food coloring until desired color is reached.
