Holiday Cookie Swap & Cookie Cookbook Giveaway

Shares 0

I’m so excited to host this cookie swap with Liz from Hoosier Homemade and Melissa from Stockpiling Moms.

We love cookies at our house, but I have to admit that at Christmas I focus more on making candy rather than cookies.  This year, I want to change that up.  I can’t wait to see what kind of recipes you have for me to try.

Here are a few of our favorites:

CocoNot Cookies – Not a speck of coconut, but you’d never know it. Fun secret ingredient.

Aunt Gerry’s Pineapple Drop Cookies – A family favorite

Oatmeal White Chocolate Chip and Cranberry Cookies – Very Christmasy!

Amish Oatmeal Cookies – Brown sugary yum and rolled in powdered sugar. 


One lucky Eat at Home winner will receive a Taste of Home Cookies and More Cookbook

Entries only accepted on this page. Facebook and Twitter entries do not count.

Giveaway will remain open until Friday, December 16th. 2011. Winner will be chosen at random, notified by email and will have 48 hours to respond.

  40. My 11-year-old grandson just made an Iraqi Crystalized Ginger Cookie recipe which used sesame oil as one of the ingredients. I thought they were going to be horrible, and felt we were wasting the $13.00 we paid for the ginger. However, he was doing it for a social studies project and so I said go for it. Am I ever glad. These were delicious. They now are at the top of my Christmas Cookie list. Although, I have to say I love a nicely decorated sugar cookie too.
