Orange Madeleines - The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

A few weeks ago I posted about The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.  I was assigned 3 people (In Natalie's ShoesHye Thyme Cafe, and Cheesy Pennies) and was to send each of them a dozen cookies.  Even better, it was to help support a great cause: Cookies for Kids' Cancer.  Together, we raised over $7000!  It gets better.  Land O'LakesDixie Crystals and Oxo matched what we raised!

I love this idea and everything behind it and I have to send a big thank you to The Little Kitchen and Love and Olive Oil for putting this together!

This was the first year I participated and I was terribly nervous.  I made 3 different cookies, and from the first bite, I immediately knew which one I was going to send out.  

The first batch I made was orange cranberry oatmeal cookies with an orange glaze.  I thought it was good but the hubby didn't like them.  The second batch of cookies I made was butter cookies.  I didn't like them but the hubby loved them.  Finally I made one more batch: orange madeleine cookies.  We both loved the look, the flavor, and the texture.  Ding ding ding...we finally had a winner!
