The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2011

I recently found out about a cool event being hosted by Lindsay of Love and Olive Oil and Julie of The Little Kitchen called the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2011.

The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2011

The idea is that food bloggers make 3 batches of cookies, send them out to other food bloggers and get 3 different batches in return.

When I first went to sign up I was a bit disappointed as it said that it was US foodies only (I’m based in the UK). However, after reading on it said that if there was sufficient interest in other countries then they would expand it. As luck would have it, several other UK based foodies had already signed up so it was all systems go!

I’ve got myself all signed up and I now just need to decide which recipe to use and get ready for baking day.

Once the swap has been completed, everyone who took part will be posting their recipes on their blogs on the 12th December 2011. So come back then to see which flavour I went with!
