Triple Ginger Chocolate Cookies

 Triple Ginger Chocolate Cookies

This is the second year that I’ve participated in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I had such an amazing time with it last year, and this year was even better. Because we traveled over Thanksgiving I actually mailed my cookies out early, so there was no frantic late night visit to the post office! Well, the visit to the post office was late at night, but it wasn’t frantic! One of the best things about the Cookie Swap (besides raising money for cancer), is learning about new food blogs! This year I received delicious White Chocolate Macadamia Nut Cookies from Rose Bakes, some amazing Cranberry Pistachio cookies from Cookies on Friday and some out of this world Chocolate and Caramel Drizzled Coconut cookies from DeLisha’s Recipes (ps Monica has amazing penmanship!).

Triple Ginger Chocolate Cookies

For my part, I made triple ginger chocolate cookies. I was trying to do my best to replicate the ginger cookies at Bakery Lorraine, and I think they turned out really well. I experimented with a few batches, and these were definitely the winners. I sent my cookies to Clawson Live, It’s Not Easy Eating Green, and Jamie’s Recipes. I had such a great time going through everyone’s blogs, and being slightly intimidated by all the great things I read!

I can’t wait to do it again next year! If you’re interested in participating, you can fill out the form here to be kept up to date!
