I recently participated in a “for real” cookie exchange with some of my blogging buddies. I decided to whip up a batch of my Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies.
Of course, I couldn’t just stuff some cookies in a tin and call it a day. Since I was mailing them halfway across the country, I wanted to make the cookies a little bit special, so here’s what I did.
I found the cutest little cookie box at World Market.
Then I saw a Moose cookie cutter and knew I had to grab it, too. I wish I had bought one for myself. It’s just too cute.
The brown and white parchment paper features owls, trees, and nuts. You can see a little bit in the above pictures.
I not only used the parchment paper to line my baking sheets, but I cut a couple of pieces to fit the inside of the box to nestle the cookies. Speaking of cookies – these are one of my favorite cookies. They are buttery bites of chocolate goodness and so easy to make. You’ve got to try them.
Let’s Make Shortbread Chocolate Chip Cookies
The box of cookies is ready to be shipped, complete with the recipe, cookie-cutter, and a red and white tea towel – all wrapped up in a Christmas bow! I placed the finished product in a sturdy box, surrounded with bubble wrap to ensure the cookies wouldn’t crumble.
Have you participated in a holiday cookie exchange this season?
