Cream Cheese Chocolate Croissant Cookies-perfect for gift giving!
The Holidays are all about baking. It’s a time for food gifts and cookie exchanges. Cookie exchanges are the best. I’m always amazed at the variety of cookies brought to the table.
This year I took part in a different type of Cookie Exchange-The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap.
The cool thing about this cookie swap? Ok yes, it’s a bunch of food bloggers swapping cookies so you know there are going to be some great cookies going back and forth across the country. No, what was really cool about this is Julie and Lindsey have turned this event into an opportunity to raise a few bucks for Cookies for Kids Cancer.
I feel like I never do as much as I can to support charity. But when you join with others, the results can be amazing. How about over $13,000 raised amazing! All from a bunch of people just wanting to share cookies.
These Cream Cheese Chocolate Croissant Cookies were the perfect choice for this swap. A sturdy cookie to hold up to handling (shaking and dropping) by the delivery service but still delicate looking. A nice dose of chocolate but not so much that if you’re sending to a warmer climate they’ll end up completely melted. Oh and the overall taste? Let’s just say it’s a good thing this recipe makes 4 dozen cookies. I had to send 3 dozen out in the world to others. I did let each child taste test one cookie.
I’ll let you do the match to figure out how many I may have eaten.
I hope these were enjoyed by those who received them as much I did.
Now let me show you the cookies I received!
Angel Wings from Sugar and Grace-so light and delicate, perfect with a cup of coffee!
Brown Sugar Cookies with Chocolate, pecans and Sea Salt from Savor.Good.Food-loved the hint of salt in every bite, sweet and salty is always a winner!
And if you want more cookies
