Today you’re in for a treat. My super talented
stalker bff Susan is stopping by with a tasty treat. She’s whipped up a batch of White Chocolate Citrus Spice Eggnog Cookies just for YOU! Why? We’re hosting a virtual cookie swap for our friends at McCormick (we have the hardest jobs don’t we). Once you’ve drooled all over Susan’s recipe. Be sure to pop over to her blog to check out my PEPPERMINT CRUNCH COOKIES! Now onto Susan’s sweet stuff…
Before I became a food blogger, it would have never occurred to me to participate in a cookie exchange.
First off, I didn’t bake. I didn’t cook. I was very good at ordering The Special.
But now, after four years of jumping in with both feet, companies like McCormick contact ME in hopes that I will bake cookies for them. In this particular case – they wanted me to host a Cookie Exchange with another foodie friend. I of course chose Paula.
In case you hadn’t realized it yet, Paula is my favorite stalker. She called me up one day, despite the fact that I abhor the phone. She’s called back nearly every single day since.
I’ve grown to love her, despite this inconvenience.
So cookies? No brainer. If there’s anyone I want to share with, it would be her.
McCormick was kind enough to outfit the both of us with a nice little selection of spices to get our cookie swap underway, and after a bit of thought and experimentation, I came up with these…
White Chocolate Citrus Spice Eggnog Cookies.
Very soft, almost cake like. Packed with flavor from the citrus zest and vanilla, and teeming with white chocolate chips. Perhaps my favorite part? The crunch of the decorator sugar atop the sweet icing. It pops and cracks, just like you want it to with a soft cookie.
I’m in love. I’d almost talk on the phone about it.
