12 Days of Christmas Cookies
Soft, chewy cinnamon milk chocolate chip cookies with toasted pecans and candied orange peel. These cookies will have you reaching for another before you realize what you’re doing!
Y’all know how I feel about chocolate chip cookies. They are my ride-or-die favorites. It just didn’t feel right not having one in this cookie-marathon!
I added orange zest and cinnamon to my cream cheese chocolate chip cookie dough and folded in toasted pecans, candied orange peel and milk chocolate chips to create a wintery, holiday CCC!
This post is part of the Great Food Blogger Holiday Cookie Swap, which is an international cookie swap that benefits Cookies for Kid’s Cancer. I participated last year with my Grandmother’s Molasses Sugar Cookies and I couldn’t wait to be a part of it again this year!
I was going to send the Moravian Christmas Cookies from yesterday, but I ate too many “taste testing”. #sorrynotsorry
So these Orange Pecan Milk Chocolate Chip Cookies were born!
When I got my list food blogger cookie recipients, I was absolutely thrilled to see a familiar favorite food blogger (I started reading “I Can Cook That” in 2010 before I even fathomed that I would start a blog one day.) and some new faces.
But honestly there really is nothing better than receiving cookies in the mail!
My first box was from one of my favorite bloggers of ALL TIME: That Skinny Chick Can Bake! She sent Peppermint White Chocolate Chip Cookies that will absolutely to die for! She mails care-packages to her sons, and if those cookies are anything like these, they are some lucky, lucky boys!
Alli from An Alli Event sent these milk chocolate toffee butter cookies! Rich, buttery and sweet: everything you want in a Christmas cookie!
And Brian from This Cookin Dad sent Lemon Basil Cookies – a totally sweet, savory experience!
