I’m glad we go that out of the way.  I know y’all are not used to seeing a sponsored post disclosure on this here website.  All these fine folks sent me their wonderful products to bake up a bunch of holiday cookies and the federal government requires that I tell you about that.

Moving on!  We totally kicked off the Sweetest Season Cookie Exchange on Saturday and here is my first contribution!

We’re starting out with some peanut butter, white chocolate, cranberry cookies for this cookie exchange! I know this is almost the exact cookie as the white chocolate peanut butter hazelnut, white chocolate chip cookie from October, but cranberries are just so wintery-y.  I swapped out the hazelnuts for cranberries to make things more festive!

I have more coming.  The rest have more of a retro feel to them.  I pulled a bunch of recipe cards from my gram’s recipe box and I’m going to be sharing some of my family’s recipes that have been part of our holiday celebration history.
