The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap 2015

It’s the most wonderful time of the year… The Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap! This year, I opted for a simple cookie that could easily be transformed. Enter the Brown Sugar Cookie – made three ways!

One is filled with nutella, topped with cocoa. The other is filled with and rolled in sesame goodness. And finally, the simple pleasure of a brown sugar vanilla cookie, perfect on it’s own with a hot cuppa tea.

The best part about these cookies is that they use ingredients that you likely have in the house. Brown sugar, butter, flour and eggs. The rest is up to you! You can get cute with them and toss in some non pareils for funfetti cookies. You can get festive and top them with crushed candy canes. You can even go exotic and mix in some candied ginger and cinnamon. Easy and quick, these are great to give as gifts, and, according to my three recipients, ship quite well!

I found the original recipe here and tweaked it just a bit. I added a table spoonful of molasses for some extra brown sugary goodness. Also, I made two alternate versions: one rolled in sesame seeds, and one filled with some nutella. To fill cookies: make a ball, press your thumb into the centre, pipe in nutella, pinch closed, flatten slightly with a spoon & bake!

Everything else is exactly as the original recipe states.

Until next year, happy cookiedays and merry #fbcookieswap all!
