Holiday Cookie Swap Adventure Round Up!

Yesterday I hosted my annual Holiday Cookie Swap and had fellow food bloggers join in by submitting their cookie recipes to my virtual party! Here are some wonderful cookies that friends have shared for the party... and I hope you check out their blogs to try some cookie recipes this holiday season!

Jude of Apple Pie, Patis & Pate
from Illinois
Gingersnap Cookies
Jude has got gingersnap cookies down to a science! After a few batches of tweaking, he found the best recipe that works perfectly. To find out what it is, you'll need to check out his blog... but in the meantime, you can drool over how perfect they are in his picture:

Jen of Beantown Baker
from Massachusetts
Lumberjack Cookies
Jen has shared with us her husband's favorite cookie, Lumberjacks. The recipe comes from her mother in law and looks like a great chewy, rich cookie... so when you get the recipe from Jen's blog to make it, have a tall glass of cold milk ready!

Carrie of Carrie's Sweet Life
from Minnesota
Carrie's mom is the inspiration for Carrie's recipe submission for rosettes. Not only are they beautiful, they really make me want to look for a rosette iron to play with! Check out Carrie's recipe on her blog and these are sure to be a family favorite!

Amy of Sing For Your Supper
from Texas
Oatmeal Cookies with Golden Raisins, Coconut & Pecans
I admire Amy's creativity because she has taken the traditional Oatmeal Raisin cookie and put her own spin on it! Her recipe for Oatmeal Cookies with Goldren Raisins, Coconut & Pecans is chock full of goodness. What are you waiting for? Check out her blog for the recipe!

Solange of Pebble Soup
from London, England
Refrigerator Cookies
From across the pond, Solange joins us to share a great cookie recipe that allows for many variations. Her recipe for Refrigerator Cookies made for a great base for other cookie flavors such as Mocha Spirals, Maple & Pecan and Spicy Fruits. Check out Solange's blog for the recipes!

Amber of Amber's Delectable Delights
from Indiana
Coconut Fudge Cups
Baking has it's advantages... aside from enjoying the final results. In fact, as Amber could tell you, she learned something new about her husband! After making these Coconut Fudge Cups, she found out how much her husband enjoyed coconut. So if you're a coconut lover, you'll want to check out Amber's blog for this recipe!

Stephanie of Macaroni & Cheesecake

Black & White Red Velvet Cookies
If you've never had the delicious opportunity to taste Red Velvet Cake, you're missing out! But Stephanie will help you, especially with her recipe for Black & White Red Velvet Cookies. These cookies are not only strikingly beautiful but I have no doubt these will taste amazing too. You know you want the recipe... so click on Stephanie's blog already to get it!

Karen of Loves to Eat Weblog

Ethel's Sugar Cookie
What would a virtual holiday cookie swap be without sugar cookies? Thankfully, Karen joins us to share her Ethel's Sugar Cookie recipe. It's a classic one that her mom made... and I'm sure once you make this, it will taste like sweet childhood days of no responsibilities. (If only I could go back in time myself...) So check out Karen's blog for the recipe and get to baking!

Tracy of Rah Cha Chow

M&M Cookies
What attracts the eye are colors... and Amy does exactly that with her colorful and tasty M&M cookies. Children and adults alike will definitely fall for these cookies! So if you still have some leftover M&Ms from halloween, here's a great recipe to put those candies to use. Check out Amy's blog for the colorful recipe!
