Cookie Love

Posted on

I may have mentioned before that my favorite food group is cookies.  In my perfect world, the food pyramid would have cookies at the bottom, dips next, then all other desserts, then all other carbs like bread, pasta, and potatoes, then fruits and veggies, and at the very top, to be eaten sparingly, would be meat.  Alas, that isn’t very balanced and eating that way would kill me, but a girl can dream. ;)

Funny that although I love cookies more than anything else, I rarely make them.  I may have also mentioned before that I rarely make treats that I REALLY like because I can’t control myself around them.  Seriously, it isn’t unusual for me to eat more than a dozen cookies when I bake them.  It’s ridiculous.

But I’m getting really excited about the upcoming cookie swaps I’m participating in.  There’s the one for bloggers, and there’s the worldwide cookie swap I’m hosting for non-bloggers (sign up here!).  I’m buying half-price Halloween candy left and right, justifying it with my husband by telling him, “this would be great in cookies!”

I thought I would share some cookie eye candy I’ve come across on Pinterest.  I haven’t decided which cookies I’ll be mailing for the swaps, but I’m saving the ones I’m considering for myself!  I want the person that gets my cookies to be surprised so there are no spoilers below.  Still, it doesn’t hurt to drool a little over these beauties.

How delicious and soft do these almond cookies look?

Now, after eying all these gorgeous treats, aren’t you in the mood to do some cookie swapping?  So far there are 18 people signed up (yay!) and I would like to beat my personal goal of 50 participants.  That would be 150 dozen cookies being sent in the mail-that’s a lot of love going around! :)  I have two participants from Germany and one from Australia, so if you are outside the US, please consider signing up so these guys will be able to participate (I only match people within the same country).  Ready to swap cookies?  Click here to sign up!

Have a blessed weekend!

**Update: just 20 minutes after posting this, we’ve got another Australian and now a South African, plus another handful of Americans, bringing the total to 25 – halfway to my goal. I’m really thinking we’ll beat my goal by the end of today! This makes me do a lot of this: :D This Christmas will not only be extra merry for everyone sending and receiving cookies, but for the postal employees (worldwide!) who have increased job security because of it.  Thanks everyone, you rock!*

About Veronica

I have a kitchen addiction and love to collect & share recipes. My passion is baking but I love to cook as well. The only thing I don't like to do in the kitchen is wash dishes, but my husband generally does them for me in exchange for his dinner.

  4. Ya, your food pyramid sounds similar to mine. Much as I love cookies, I’d have to put brownies and bars at the top though. Those seem to be my favorite!! I agree with everything else though!

    I like the way your food pyramid sounds! My two favorite food groups are peanut butter and ice cream.

  8. Wow—I love the cookies you pinned up!!!! I wish I had time to participate but I feel already swamped with Thanksgiving/Xmas stresses! I do sincerely hope you get 50 (and if you are close—let me know if you need one more—I will try to accommodate).
