The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2013: Recipe Roundup Part 1

I’m sad that this year’s cookie swap has come to a end, but I’m happy too. With a belly full of delicious cookies how could I not be? I hope you all enjoyed it as much as we did. :) But I am so excited to present the post we’ve all been waiting for: the great recipe roundup! Have you ever seen so many cookie recipes, all in one place? From macaroons to merinques, pinwheels to peanut butter, there’s something here for everyone. And then some.

We got so many recipes this year (555 submissions, to be exact!) that we had to divide the post in two. What you see below is only HALF of them. Click here to view the Recipe Roundup Part 2 on The Little Kitchen.

To recap, this year we raised a total of $13,778.40 for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, thanks to donations from our participants and our generous brand partners:

(Y’all are awesome, thank you!)

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.
