Cookie Swap Link Up!

Perfect day for a cookie swap link up.  It's snowing here in NJ.  I love the snow.  Especially when I can stay home and bake all day.  Not happening now that I work only 3 miles from home...lol.
Anyway, I made these (click for the recipe) raspberry almond shortbread cookies last night for our friends annual cookie swap tomorrow.  Tonight after work I have an ultrasound appointment and I wanted to get a work out in, so I figured I'd make them last night.  I wouldn't say these are a favorite since it was my first time making them, but they came out great and were super easy!  They taste like linzer cookies with a quarter of the prep work.  Tonight or tomorrow before the swap, I'll ice them.  To make them look more Christmasy, I might add a little green food coloring to the glaze.

Is it snowing where you live today?  Do you like to make cookies from scratch?


  1. Yay! Can't wait to try them tomorrow! :)

  2. I want one or ten of those in my mouth!!!

  3. Those look so yummy! I may add them to my "make" list!!
