I love the flavors of the holiday season..pecans, fudge, chocolate & peppermint, but I think the orange & cranberry flavor is highly overlooked. Last year I was only a little slightly obsessed with chocolate and peppermint…I think I did a bazillion recipes with them. This year, I moved away from my favorite flavor combo and went with orange cranberry. Let me just say, it was the best move EVER! These orange cranberry sugar cookies were scrumptious and I haven’t stopped dreaming about them.
I’m super excited to be participating in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap this year. They are partnering with COOKIES FOR KIDS’ CANCER again, a national non-profit organization committed to funding new therapies used in the fight against pediatric cancer. I love that all this fun cookie swappin’ has a bigger purpose.
I can’t tell how exciting it was to swap packages of cookies with people and that I was able to actually eat the cookies that arrived on my doorstep. They were all delicious and a hit with the family.
I was blessed to receive three beautiful packages of gluten free, vegan cookies in the swap. Go check out their wonderful recipes.
R: Chelsy from Mangia sent a beautiful box full of Iced Vanilla Almond Butter Cookies. I’m just amazed me that they were gluten free and vegan.
C: Alyssa from Queen of Quinoa sent the most scrumptious Chocolate Peppermint Macaroons (gluten free/vegan of course).
L: Jacqueline from The Dusty Baker sent two amazing cookies, including these Dark Chocolate Lace Cookies. They were gluten free and vegan too.
