    Holiday Cookie Exchange

    holiday cookie exchange

    So a couple of days ago I shared my new Gluten Free Peanut Butter Cup Blossoms with you. The softest most peanut butter-y, chocolate-y cookie I have ever ate in my life (and that’s a bold statement). Now myself and some of my amazing blogger girlfriends are here today to all share our favorite holiday cookies for a Holiday Cookie Exchange.

    I wish I could say we all got together and gorged on everyone’s cookies but we unfortunately have a long distance relationship going on right now. I do like to pretend we got to hang out and dip cookies in nut milk and watched Home Alone 2, The Holiday and all my other favorite holiday movies together, but I will just have to make Jord do that with me.
