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.
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.)
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!
