Chocolate Chunk Mint Sandwich Cookies – The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap

Today is the day to reveal my cookies! I had so much fun participating in this cookie swap. I was a little nervous to sign up since I am so new to blogging, but I am really glad that I did. We got to sample some really delicious cookies and I found a few new blogs to follow!

Here are the three types of cookies that I received:

The first cookies I got were chocolate chip macaroons from Castle Walk Kitchen.

These were really yummy. My husband really enjoyed them. He loves coconut.

Next, I got Turtle Cheesecake Cookies from 2 Cookin’ Mamas. The idea for this blog is so cute. It’s a mom and daughter who work on their blog together. I love that.

These cookies were my personal favorite, but I’m partial to anything with caramel on it.

Finally, we received these Mantecaditos con Guayaba (Shortbread Almond Cookies with Guava) from The Noshery.

I honestly did not get to try these cookies. They were gone before I go a change, but according to my husband who ate the whole dozen, they were delicious.

 

Now onto my cookies. I mailed cookies to I Want Crazy, Our Full Table and Big Flavors from a Tiny Kitchen. I mailed them these Chocolate Chunk Mint Sandwich Cookies. These cookies are really special to me. My maid of honor’s mom makes these cookies for us whenever we go over to her home. It has become quite a tradition. They are some of my most favorite cookies.
