Chai Snowball Cookies and the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

One of my favorite blogs to follow is Love and Olive Oil.  The photography is gorgeous and I love that it’s run by a husband and wife team {like Justin and myself}.  Lindsay and Taylor make almost everything from scratch and even have a few cookbooks out {breakfast for dinner, YES please!}.

This years marks the third year that Lindsay has co-hosted a cookie exchange for fellow food bloggers.  Once you sign up, Lindsay and Julie {from the Little Kitchen} match you up with three other food bloggers.  You make three dozen cookies and send one batch to each blogger and in return, you receive three dozen different cookies from three other food bloggers.  The cookie exchange has OXO, Dixie Crystals, Gold Medal, and Grandma’s Molasses as brand partners and OXO sent me four free spatulas just for participating!  The best part of all of this {aside from the cool free kitchen tools and all of the delicious cookies}, is that all of the proceeds go to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer.   It wasn’t a hard decision for me to decide that I wanted to participate.  {Click the badge to read more about the exchange and how it worked.  Prepare yourself for next year’s!}

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Exchange 2013
After all of the baking and packaging and mailing, I received cookies from two other bloggers.  I am going to tell myself that the third blogger just wrote my address incorrectly and that’s why I didn’t get them.  {Insert fake smile here.}

The first package I received was homemade Milano cookies from Brittany over at Life of a Bama Girl.  Her cookies looked like professionally made Milanos and they tasted delicious!  {I’ll update with a link to those as soon as she posts the recipe.}  The second package actually had three different types of cookies from Allison over at Fridgg.  Allison made Cookie Butter Cookies, S’mores Cookies, and Sweetened Condensed Milk Cookies.  They were all amazing, but the hubby and I definitely duked it out for the S’mores Cookies.  I sent one dozen Chai Snowball Cookies to Laurie at Food is Love, Emily at Totes Delishy, and the lovely {unnamed} gal over at Life Taste So Good.  Be sure to check out all of these sites, they’ve got some delicious recipes!

On to the Chai Snowball Cookies…
