I’m so excited to begin the 2nd annual Sweet Swap for the holiday season! There’s nothing I love more than to share recipes with fellow cookie lovers and I’m glad you can join me this year!

This week we will focus on Rolled Cookies – like Sugar Cookies, Gingerbread, Biscotti … so if you have any rolled cookie recipes – I’ll love to see them! And of course, like last year, we have prizes – but this year they are awesome! (More on prizes below)

Christmas cookiesOne of my absolute favorite cookies is the Sugar Cookie. There are so many recipes and so many variations you can do with this simple cookie – and so many ways to decorate it! I’m a simple decorator but I know friends who go all out and make the most beautiful cookies I’ve ever seen! Below is a classic sugar cookie recipe that I’ve used in the past – is this similar to how you make yours?

Be sure to share your recipe below – or pin it to our Sweet Swap board (or even tag me on FB and I’ll share it on my page).

Sugar Cookies

Just share a recipe on the days I share mine, tag me on Facebook and I will share it on my page and/or pin a recipe for that day on Pinterest on my Sweet Swap board (you’ll need to request to join to board – email assistant@steenaholmes.com). I’ll keep track each week of who participates and thru a random generator – a winner will be chosen.
