Food Bloggers L.A. Cookie Exchange
Posted By Dorothy Reinhold On December 22, 2012 @ 12:01 pm In Cookies,Desserts,Food Bloggers Los Angeles | 4 Comments
Today is a perfect day to make cookies! The kids are home from school, the college students have flown in, any relatives have probably descended, and the family is hovering.
Let’s put them to work and bake for the rest of the holiday!
The Food Bloggers Los Angeles group – a merry band of blogging bakers if ever there was one – met earlier this month for their annual cookie exchange, a frenzy of sugar and nuts and spices. Some of the best morsels in Los Angeles were arrayed on the buffet table, and once we said “Go!” members eagerly lined up with their tins to choose what they wanted to bring home.
Some of everything, please!
Choose a recipe from this array for your own baking pleasure. In addition to the cookies mentioned in the story, FBLA members linked up their other amazing cookie recipes in the photo collection at the bottom. Pick a recipe and fire up your oven!
Erika Kerekes of In Erika’s Kitchen  (our host! Thank you!), contributed impossibly rich and intriguing Super Smoky Scotch Whiskey Truffles  that she had rolled in silver sprinkles. FBLA is all about the bling come cookie time!
Lana Watkins of Bibberche  brought beautiful Hazelnut Shortbread with Custard and Ganache.
Kim Burnell of Rustic Garden Bistro  brought Brown Butter Salted Chocolate Chip Cookies. She had us with the name alone.
Lynne Hemer of Cook & Be Merry  brought Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies.
Kelli Abrahamian of I Had a Delicious Time  brought her famous Apricot Rosemary Bars , which were one of the winning cookies in the L.A. Times Cookie Contest this year. (I made these for Thanksgiving and they were a huge hit!)
Natalie Wiser-Orozco of The Devil Wears Parsley  brought Double Decker Torte – apricot, pineapple, mango and walnut with a sour cream crust. Yum!
Gerry Speirs of Foodness Gracious  also brought Russian Tea Cakes. Mmmm…the more tea cakes and wedding cookies, the better!
Christina Peters of MDR Photography Classes  brought classic Peanut Butter Cookies.
Andrew Wilder of Eating Rules  brought a plate of Vegan Strawberry Spelt Scones. If you have ever met him, it won’t surprise you to learn he ground his own spelt.
Priscilla Willis of She’s Cookin’  brought Snickerdoodles with Cinnamon Chips. Yum – double cinnamon!
Susan Silverberg of The Home Artist  brought Almond Cream Cheese Cookies.
For every cookie exchanged, Glad (the plastic wrap people) donated $1 to CookiesForKidsCancer.org in the name of FBLA. We raised $1,427. That’s a lotta cookies!
