The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2014: Recipe Roundup Part 1

Get ready, it’s cookie time! Each year, after the conclusion of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap, we post a massive, gigantic, epic roundup of ALL the recipes people baked and sent to their matches this year. I swear, I’m in awe at y’all’s creativity when it comes to these cookies. Some of them are downright brilliant, and, if the 3 I received myself are any indicator, out of this world delicious.

We’ve divided this year’s submissions (471 cookie recipes in all) into two posts. What you see below is just the first half. Check out the Recipe Roundup Part 2 on The Little Kitchen.

We are so excited to have raised $12,335 this year for Cookies for Kids’ Cancer for pediatric cancer research, thanks to donations from our participants and our generous brand partners, who matched each and every donation dollar for dollar.

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.

I hope you’re hungry… because this roundup is EPIC.
