I made people food, and then sent it to people! :)
I participated in the 2nd Annual Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap and I got to do something different AND people sent me yummy cookies. What’s not to love?

On to the recipe! I adapted this recipe for Easy Sugar Cookies.

Ingredients
2.17 ounce bag Skittles Candies
2 3/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Directions
1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit and line a baking sheet with parchment paper or a silicone baking mat.
2. In a small bowl, stir together skittles candies, flour, baking soda, and baking powder. Set aside.
3. In a large bowl, cream together the butter and sugar until smooth. Beat in egg and vanilla. Gradually blend in the dry ingredients.
4. Roll rounded teaspoonfuls of dough into balls, and place onto prepared baking sheet.
5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes in the preheated oven, or until golden. Let stand on cookie sheet two minutes before removing to cool on wire racks.

(After my first try I figured that I should stick to something easy .. )
that doesn't look right ..

I received some beautiful and tasty cookies from these three ..

JellyToast
Red, White and Blueberries
The Redhead Baker

Make sure to check out there blogs for the recipes of the cookies I chowed down on. There was no time to take pictures, cookies don’t last long in my house, and I figured my pictures wouldn’t do there wonderful work justice any way.

    I just wanted to let you know that we received your cookies and they were very good. I look forward to making some of your puppy recipes for our little fur son.

    I’m glad you liked them! As you see I’m not a cookie baker so I went with something really, really simple :) (and the cookies in the picture were a second batch I made so in case you were wondering none of the cookies I sent out were ever in the grass lol)

    Awe, your doggies must have been so disappointed. I bet they thought you were working on a new treat for them.

    The cookie swap idea sounds fun. Perhaps I’ll try signing up for next years.
