Virtual Cookie/Baked Goods Swap

First off ladies - we're boring these days. I still love you all, but we really need to spice it up.

Idea - who wants to do a Virtual Cookie/Baked Goods Swap? I've been doing a bunch of baking over the past few days and am always down to try new things. Also, I would love to see what you all's go to holiday treats are.


If you want to participate post a link to or just the full recipe of your favorite holiday treat. Bonus points for PIPs.


So who's down - fat kid style?

  • Not a holiday cookie, but they are yummy and all I bake right now. If you make them for others, make sure they know there is so much fiber in them, they'll be ahem... cleaned out after a couple cookies.

  • This has become the favorite in our house.

    Gingerbread Biscotti

    Adapted From Picky Palate 

    1 1/4 cups flour

    1 Cup whole wheat flour

    1-1/4 cups packed dark brown sugar

    1-1/4 tsp. baking powder

    1 tsp. ground cinnamon

    1/2 tsp. salt

    1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg

    1/4 tsp. baking soda

    1 bag of White Chocolate Chips

    1/4 cup molasses

    2 large eggs

    2 Bags of Chocolate Chips - I usually do 1 Milk and 1 Semi-Sweet


    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place flours, brown sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, salt, nutmeg, baking soda pecans and cinnamon chips in the bowl of a stand mixer. In a medium bowl, mix eggs with molasses. With mixer on low speed, pour in egg mixture to dry ingredients until well combined.

    2. Divide dough into 2 equal parts and form into 10 inch logs 4 inches apart onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Each log should be about 2 inches wide. Bake for about 30 minutes and let cool for 10 minutes.Cut each log into ? inch pieces on the diagonal. Place back onto the baking sheet and bake for an additional 10 minutes or until nice and crispy. Remove and let cool completely.

    3. Place chocolate chips into a double broiler over boiling water. Melt until smooth. (you can also melt your chips in the microwave if you prefer) Dip the top half of each biscotti into melted chocolate and place onto wax paper to dry. Decorate with sprinkles of choice if desired. Once dried, do yourself a favor and dip into hot chocolate.

    makes about 30 biscotti
