November Favorites: More Cookie Recipes for your Holiday Cookie Swap

I love lists and favorites, so I’m going to share a few which have caught my eye now in November. Are you a subscriber to my newsletter? There will be a few favorites in there which aren’t in this post, along with other content (and giveaways!), so sign up now! I’m also on Twitter @rossoSee past favorites.

I’m a big fan of Cookie Swaps and a few years ago I published a guide How to Host a Cookie Swap Exchange with some recipes from my site and around the web. First go read that and then come back here. Back? Ok. So now I’m going to add even more recipes to your Cookie Swap recipe arsenal!

Here are some great recipes you should think about making and sharing for your cookie swap. I won’t tell you which ones I’m making so my cookie swap attendees this year will be surprised. ;)

Ina Garten did her first-ever Cookie Swap (welcome to the club, Ina!) with some bloggers. You can see all the cookie recipes they shared here, but here are two of my favorites:

Chocolate Caramel Matzo from Zoe Bakes

Raspberry Crumble Bars from Ina Garten

Serious Eats also did a huge cookie swap a few years back. While I would love to be in an office which has 28 different kinds of cookies (or 30 in the 2011 edition) in it, my waistline is really happy that I’m not. Here are a few of my favorites from their swaps:

Spiced Brookies

Toffee Bars

 Bouchon Bakery’s Nutter Butters

Dream Coconut Bars
