Peanut Butter Cookie Cups {Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap}

Dec 16


Sharing holiday cookies is my favorite! I normally make six or seven kinds, but this year, I just wasn’t up to it. Laying and eating cookies is more my style 😉

This is why the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap is so magical. I make one kind of cookies and get three more in the mail. And we raise money for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. Yay for cookies and a great cause!

This is the FOURTH year I have taken part– I can’t believe I have been blogging this long.

IMG_9118This year, I made peanut butter cup cookies. Also a family recipe, and one batch for my family made almost 80 cookies- perfect for the Cookie Swap!

I had boxes leftover from last year, so I boxed them up and sent them to three lovely bloggers- Anna from Anna Dishes, Michelle from Chasing Bagels, and Renee from Tortillas and Honey.

I then received three amazing cookie treats in the mail!Renee from Kudos Kitchen by Renee sent the most wonderful peppermint biscotti and a handcrafted mug for the cookie swap. I’m in love, and what a wonderful memento!


Rachel from Bakerita sent peppermint mint shortbread cookies. I LOVE mint and so do my friends! There were gobbled up! I apologize for the terrible picture. We ate most the cookies BEFORE I even thought to take a picture. They were that good.IMG_9164

Not Starving Yet sent delicious shortbread cookies too. YUM!!


All in all, another wonderful year for the cookie swap!

  1. Thanks again for sending me these lovely cookies! I thoroughly enjoyed them! It’s been a hard year for me to get motivated and pep myself up for the holidays and holiday baking… these cookie swap cookies might be the only baking I do this holiday season which is so unlike me. But I don’t have a bun in the oven as an excuse! 😉

    Well, first of all, you look adorable! I but you’re ready to pop. Those cookies sound delicious. I’m all about the peanut butter and chocolate. I participated in the swap this year for the first time. LOVED it! What a great cause. I’m in love with the cup they sent you. That’s such a wonderful idea. Can’t wait to see pictures of your new baby! Happy New Year!
