I am participating in the funnest recipe swap. This is the third annual Christmas cookie recipe swap where multiple bloggers swap Christmas cookie recipes to share on their blogs. This is my first year participating and I’m so excited to participate in the years to come. This year I was paired up with Rachel from R and R Workshop. I’ve known Rachel from other blogger collaborations and hops and I just love the girl. She sent me this recipe for Gingerbread Cookies. Not only did she give me a fabulous new Christmas cookie recipe, she also gave me my first-ever experience making gingerbread cookies. I know, right?! Where in the world have I been. My family and I loved putting these cookies together. From mixing the dough to decorating the cookies, my boys were all kinds of involved. It was such a fun family activity for us! We made gingerbread men, stars, and trees. We had so much fun decorating them! I would say that we plated them up and gave them to the neighbors, but they didn’t make it that far. haha Santa would love it if we made these for him on Christmas Eve! I’m so excited to start making these gingerbread cookies with my family during the holidays! And big thanks to Rachel for this yummy recipe. Go check out her blog for more holiday ideas!Don’t miss all the other great Christmas cookie recipes included in the recipe swap this year! I can’t wait to bake my way through these!
