2nd Annual International Holiday Cookie Exchange

November 3, 2011

The International Blogger Holiday Cookie Exchange is back for 2011!

Last year Adrienne of Gastroanthropology and I created this event as a way to have a cookie exchange across international borders. Since it’s not always feasible to ship cookies, we trade recipes instead.

Adrienne has a lot going on this year that has taken her away from food blogging for a bit (including a new baby – congratulations!), so one of my favorite blogging buddies has stepped up to partner with us this year, Andrea of Food Embrace!

Without further delay, here’s how it works:

As a part of this recipe exchange you’ll be doing three things – sending a recipe to another blogger, making the recipe another blogger has sent to you, then posting about the recipe you made.
The recipe should be something you’d find on a holiday cookie plate, so anything from rugelach to alfajores to fudge squares to gingerbread men qualifies!

To participate email me at Lori (at) fakefoodfree (dot) com or Andrea (at) foodembrace (dot) com (or leave a comment with your email address below).

So here are the important dates:

Let us know you want to participate by next Thursday, November 10th.
(We will email you soon after with whom you should send your recipe to and who you will be receiving one from.)
Send your recipe to the blogger randomly selected for you by Sunday, November 20th.

Make, photograph and post about the recipe you received from a fellow blogger by Sunday, December 11th.

The round up will be featured here at Fake Food Free and Food Embrace the week of December 12th.

We hope you will join us!

    Thanks so much for the interest in the exchange. We have a great group of bloggers together! You’ll be receiving an email this weekend, likely Sunday, with more information on who to send your recipe too and who you’ll be receiving one from! Feel free to email me if you have any questions between now and then.
