Last year I had the BEST time participating in The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. I made Q’s favorite Black & White cookies for the swap and also to share with Q when he came home for R&R. The Cookie Swap is so much fun. You bake three dozen cookies and send them off to three people and in return you receive three dozen cookies from three other people (thanks for sending them to Alaska, ladies).

This year I decided to make coconut macaroons. I’ve never made them before, LOVE them and wanted to try something new. These are very basic and can easily by dipped in chocolate if you wanted something a little fancy. I was afraid with all the shipping and possible freezing (Alaska does that to things) that chocolate may not be a good choice for the swap, so I sent them bare. Along with my macaroons, I packed up a handwritten note, a business card and the recipe for the cookies!

In return for sending out my macaroons, I received delicious goodies from two other bloggers (one couldn’t do the swap): Ashton from Something Swanky and Lisa from Clawson Live. Their cookies were DELICIOUS! And it was so fun to get packages filled with cookies in the mail all the way up here!
