A few weeks ago I posted about The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I was assigned 3 people (In Natalie's Shoes, Hye 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'Lakes, Dixie 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!
