You guys want some cookies!? – said by Corky Romano in a fake Girl Scout voice. Seriously, get your cookie faces ready because today you will be bombarded by all kinds of fantastic holiday cookies compliments of the 2014 Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. It’s just like a cookie swap party but it’s all done through the mail and who you are getting cookies from is a surprise! It’s the fourth year of this grand event and I’ve managed to be a part of it all four years, so yea it’s a good time and you should join us next year if you missed out. This year I received Christmas Cake Batter Cookies from Erin (Currently Coveting), Triple Chocolate Peppermint Cookies from Jamie (The Gaited Baker), and Cinnamon Pinwheel Bites from Ani (Confessions of a Foodie). I loved how all of them were different and festive!

As for my recipients, I sent fruit cake cookies to Janet (Babcakes Bakery), Liz (That Skinny Chick Can Bake) and Kristen (From Captain’s Daughter to Army Mom) and they got great reviews! I bet these cookies would convert fruit cake haters. How can you go wrong with the base for my favorite chewy chocolate chip cookies combined with candied fruit and toasted nuts? Oh and in case that’s not convincing enough, I browned the butter. Because browned butter = amazeballs.

Brown Butter Pumpkin Cupcakes with Biscoff Frosting 2

If you haven’t been browning your butter you really should start. One extra step is all it takes to increase the depth of the flavor or whatever you are cooking, whether it be sweet or savory. In the case of these cupcakes the result was so delicious that I should have made a double batch. I brought them to a party and people were practically fighting over them and the last one was split into fourths just to keep the peace. The cupcakes are a bit heavier than traditional cupcakes due to the addition of pumpkin puree but they are not lacking on moisture. And if you love Speculoos/Biscoff cookies, you will rave over the frosting made out of cookie butter!

P.S. For those of you wondering, my friend Maggie adored her birthday cake saying it was “the best cake ever“! Just like the cake the weekend was filled with greatness. We also ran a 5K in which both Maggie and I placed 2nd in our respective age groups. If Maggie hadn’t just turned 30 I would’ve only made 3rd place haha.

Blueberry White Chocolate Brown Butter Cookies

It doesn’t get much better than a super chewy cookie. These blueberry white chocolate chip brown butter cookies are not only chewy but literally bursting with flavor.

Big, fat, chewy cookies are back! Ever since perfecting my perfect chewy chocolate chip cookie I have only been making normal sized cookies, but when I saw Laruen’s recipe for blueberry white chocolate cookies I knew it was time to bust out the 1/4 cup scoop again. So I took my big, fat, chewy chocolate chip cookie recipe, browned the butter, and added fresh blueberries and white chocolate chips. And you know what happened? They blew my mind. These cookies were so incredibly soft and chewy that my step mom said “they don’t taste cooked” to which I replied “that’s the point!” I wish I had captured a photo of their innards so that you could fully appreciate what I am talking about. The insides were cooked just enough to not be raw and hold their form but not too much to turn them crumbly. It is unsafe for these cookies to be unguarded as I will make myself sick eating one after another, after another.
