So, I have a little story to tell you. It’s all about the time when I made cookies and sent them to other bloggers. Sounds fun, right? It was all part of The Great Food Bloggers Cookie Swap of 2012.
When you are baking for other people, other bloggers especially, there is a slight bit of pressure to make sure your reputation for cooking good food stays in tact. You really want everything to turn out perfectly. You do not, let’s say, want to accidentally put banana flavored instant pudding in your cookie dough when it’s supposed to be French vanilla instant pudding. You also do not want to realize you made the mistake until after you’ve put the cookies in the mail, come home and snatched your first bite of said cookies. No, no you don’t.
So, to my friends Maris, Lindsay and Kelly… I must apologize, profusely, for grabbing the wrong box out of my pantry and sending you what were not the best cookies ever. I owe you really good cookies, which these Christmas Confetti Cookies are, when made with the correct type of pudding!
A special thanks to Lindsay (yep…I sent bad cookies to one of the coordinators of the cookie swap!) and Julie for organizing yet another fun and successful Food Bloggers Cookie Swap! Also, a big shout out to Becky for her Peanut Butter Blossom cookies, Gerri for his Cranberry Orange Cookies with White Chocolate Chunks and Christina for the Chai Tea Sugar Cookies. They were gobbled up within mere hours of hitting our doorstep. Thank you for your generosity and for sharing such delicious cookies with my family!
Now, for the Christmas Confetti Cookie recipe, with the correct type of pudding mix listed!
