White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies #fbcookieswap

Hi Everyone,

Every year for 3 years I have participated in the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. It’s one of my favorite posts of the year. I started the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap the first year I started blogging and it was the first time I felt apart of the food blogger group. What we do is make a batch of cookies and send them out secretly to 3 participant. They have no idea the cookies are coming. What a great surprise to get in the mail. In return I get 3 dozen of cookies from 3 different bloggers. It’s a great way to try new cookies and meet new bloggers. This year for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap I made White Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies.

I went with Peanut Butter Cookies because well, its peanut butter! But also because I have had great reviews on my Ultimate Peanut Butter Cookie and I thought I would change it up and add white chocolate chips. It’s a match made in heaven.

The cookies are soft with crispy edges, sweet chocolate chips and the perfect peanut butter flavor. I used Peanut Butter and Co White Chocolate Dreams Peanut Butter to give the most marvelous white chocolate flavor. Another secret to the cookies is adding a pinch of maple syrup. Trust me, you have to add maple syrup to your next batch of PB cookies. You won’t be disappointed!

As I write this, I am munching on the Coconut Macaroons that I received from Karen of Tasty Bite.  Plus I also got the most delicious  Pistachio Date Pinwheel Cookies from It’s Not Easy Eating Green and I can’t keep my hands off Cardamon & Orange and Tropical Magic Cookie Bars from Jenn of My Kitchen Kreations To You. You can check them out on my Instagram page.

If you’re a food blogger I highly recommend joining the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap next year.

Have a great week!
