Peanut Butter Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Yesterday I went to a large cookie swap in Austin, but it wasn’t my first swap of the season. True, I swap jam and other preserves all year long through ATX Swappers, and just last weekend I went to my first-ever soup swap. But cookie swaps are the quintessential food gathering of the holiday season, and I was excited to be able to participate in not just the local swap, but the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap hosted by Julie of The Little Kitchen and Lindsay of Love & Olive Oil.

They did an amazing job wrangling hundreds of bloggers all over the world, matching us with care. Because I have a food allergy (bananas; big bummer) I was paired with a couple of other people who are in a similar situation. It’s always fun to exchange food with new people, and for me the fun isn’t over yet – because one of my swap partners is in Alaska, the final box of cookies should be arriving any day now.

I made a twist on the ubiquitous chocolate crinkles – OK, not that big of a deal, but I added peanut butter. Can’t go wrong with that!

  1. Just rec’d the cookies and they are delicious – and still soft after traveling this far (AK)! They also were still in one piece, so if someone needs a cookie that travels well, give these a try.

    thanks and take care :o)
