I'm really enjoying the cookie recipes everyone is contributing. Your cookie swap is proving a fantastic and fun thing to do today.

One thing, there isn't a link to Monica's blog (item 10). Fortunately I know who she is but you may have readers who don't. Just wanted to let you know.

My sister bought cinnamon bark at a craft show that someone had made. It was excellent!! I wonder if you could use your recipe substituting cinnamon candies and cinnamon oil (is there such a thing)? Thanks for doing this swap. It has been fun seeing all the different yummy recipes.

Wow Jessi! I will have to come back and visit each recipe!! I am getting quite fat just reading the names! My favorite to bake are biscotti cookies. My family and friends expect them each year! If I get around to it, I may do a blog posting when I whip out my mixer! Thanks so much for such an awesome post! You are a cutie pie, too! Love your banner - too adorable!
