Holiday Cookie Exchange 2013 for Food Bloggers L.A.

If it’s December, that means it’s cookie time, and for members of the group Food Bloggers Los Angeles, it’s our most anticipated meeting of the year.

Baby HedgeHog Cookies from She Paused 4 Thought [1]We meet in real life, and each bring 5-6 dozen cookies, display them on the host’s table, and try not to snitch any as we await all arrivals. (This is easier said than done.)

It’s our third annual cookie exchange, and we highly recommend it as a way to stock your cookie larder without doing all the work yourself. (We’re smart that way.)

We’d like to share our cookies with you today. May we tempt you to get the butter out of the refrigerator and turn on your oven?Food Bloggers L.A. 2013 Cookie Swap [2]

Let’s take a look at the visual feast, and then the links to each recipe are below the array of photos.

Happy Delicious December to everyone!
