Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap – Monster Cookie Recipe

I am so excited to share this cookie recipe with you and even more excited to tell you about this awesome cookie exchange I participated in called The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap partners with Cookies For Kids Cancer to raise money to fight against pediatric cancer, this year they raised $13,778.40. I had to be a part of this, not only to raise money for a great cause but also to meet new bloggers and try out some delicious cookies. Below I shared my favorite cookie recipe ever, originally found on Picky-Palate.

  1. Your cookies are so vibrant and colorful. Love a monster cookie filled with M&Ms. Yum!

    This was my first year participating in the Cookie Swap; I made Soft-Baked Gingersnap Molasses Cookies, 3 ways. Had great fun and enjoyed getting exposed to so many other passionate food bloggers.

    Happy holidays!
