Hold on to your spatulas. Start your mixers. Because this is the post you’ve all been waiting for: the great recipe roundup! From snowballs to snickerdoodles, blossoms to biscotti, there’s a little bit of everything. And then some. If you’re not hungry now, you will be very, very soon.

Seriously, where else are you going to get hundreds of delicious and creative cookie recipes all in one place?

And this is just the half of it. Literally. Click here to view the Recipe Roundup Part 2 on The Little Kitchen.

By the numbers, the 2nd Annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap was an enormous success. 576 food bloggers. Over $4,400 raised for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer. And more than 20,000 cookies shipped around the world. Color me impressed. To everyone who baked cookies, shipped cookies, received cookies, ate cookies, drooled over cookies… thank you for helping to make this event such a huge success. I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. :)

Once again, if you are a food blogger didn’t get a chance to participate this year, be sure to sign up for our notifications list. We will be sending an email blast out as soon as things start gearing up for next years’ swap.
