Food Bloggers Los Angeles Cookie Exchange

When the group FBLA (Food Bloggers L.A. [1]) gets together for a potluck meeting each month, trust me, it’s a lip-smacking affair.

So you can guess that when we gathered for a holiday cookie exchange at the home of co-founder Erika Kerekes (In Erika’s Kitchen [2]), bloggers stepped it up and brought their most delectable treats!

Take a look…drooling is allowed.


Light Molasses Cookies from Worth the Whisk


Parmesan Smoked Paprika (savory) Cookies from In Erika’s Kitchen


Chocolate Orange Almond Macaroons (Gluten-Free)


Hazelnut Bondies from Savour Fare

Can’t you just smell the vanilla, butter and sugar?


Gingersnaps from Cook and Be Merry.


Rocky Cranberry Rugelach

Peanut Butter Fudge on wooden tray [9]

Peanut Butter Fudge by Shockingly Delicious (that’s moi!)



Fig & Date Prairie Cakes with Sherry Icing from Bake This Cake.


White Chocolate Apricot Scones from She Paused 4 Thought


Coconut Walnut Crescents from Bibberche.

Whew. And there’s more!


Ginger Snaps with Lemon Cream Filling.


Persian Saffron Cookies from Family Spice.


Chia Crunch Cookies by Jolly Tomato.


Coconut Macroons (some with chocolate chips) from The Fresh 20.


We also ate some non-cookie dishes, including…


Watermelon Radish and Truffle Butter Tartines from In Erika’s Kitchen.



Hostess Erika Kerekes, co-founder (with Patti Londre) of Food Bloggers Los Angeles.


Spinach Feta Roasted Red Pepper Roulade from Bibberche. (I should have taken the photo AFTER I took a piece of the front roll.)

And then we got to work filling our boxes with cookies to take home! (We may have sampled a few along the way…)
