Holiday Cookie Swap + My Etsy Shop

I hope everyone had a great Thanksgiving! I'm feeling severely under the weather today and I'm continuing to give thanks that I have this guy in my life...

...since he has not only cleaned up the joint after our game day feast, but voluntarily picked up my tissues, made me tea and went out to get us lunch supplies for the week while I blog and watch The Muppets Christmas Carol. True story.

Anyhoo, I have already begun my holiday baking! Though I save most of my cookie making for later in December with my mom and sisters, I thought it would be fun to try out some new recipes and have some pretty cookie trays as hostess gifts from now until New Year's.

And since I've been making so many, I recently opened up an Etsy shop, where you can purchase holiday cookies for all of your party needs! We are shipping anywhere in the US, however, if you live in Manhattan or Jersey City/Hoboken, we can arrange a pick up if you wish and can include more custom orders like cupcakes since they won't be damaged during shipping. If you're in the market for some holiday cookies, head on over to The Tiny Red Kitchen to check them out. Oh and as always, feel free to email me with any questions!

Now that that's out of the way, here's what I really wanted to discuss with you. Since I'm such a cookie fiend around the holidays, I thought it would be fun to organize a virtual cookie swap here on TAA. From now until December 23rd, I'll be collecting your favorite cookie recipes and posting them here on the site for all to see, bake at home and enjoy! Oh and if you don't celebrate Christmas, that's no excuse since, hey who doesn't like cookies regardless of the celebration?

So if you have a recipe to share, please email it over (theavidappetite@gmail.com) along with a photo (the photo part is very important since we all eat with our eyes before our mouths!) and I'll try to publish as many as I can. So what do you say? Are you up to the challenge? By the time Christmas rolls around, we could have an arsenal at our disposal for all things cookie baking!
