Today’s the day! A little while ago I signed up to participate in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. And it’s finally time to share the cookies that I made, and sent to a few other food bloggers: Ali, Loy and Eleana. I think they are perfect for the holidays, and if you’ve got to mail them they hold up pretty well too!
The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap is more than just about cookies though. It was created by Julie and Lindsay as a way to help food bloggers donate to Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. This year there were 622 participants and we raised $13,778.40! Pretty darn amazing if you ask me.
Because I was sending this cookies out, I wanted to make a cookie that I knew would hold up well. This lead me to oatmeal cookies. And then I realized that I do not have a recipe for oatmeal cookies on the blog yet. How is that possible?!
I adore oatmeal cookies. I especially adore oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips added. And these ones also have the sweet, fruity bonus of dried cranberries.
