Nutella Pillow Cookies and the 3rd Annual Cookie Swap!

Brrr...it's cold in here...there must be some Clovers in the atmosphere (sorry, Bring It On reference). Temps are in the 40s in SF which is relatively warm considering I'm from the East coast but I must admit I'M COLD. It must be the wind or the fact that my apartment feels like a refrigerator. Regardless, I am a little nervous going home where temps are in the teens. I hope I can still face "real" winter!

On Sunday, I held my third annual cookie swap. Crazy town. Time has flown by! I made these lovely Nutella Pillow Cookies.


Its fun to host an annual event. Each year I've tried to do something a little different. This year I had it on a weekend instead of after work which I think worked well for most people. I also had friends vote on their favorite cookie with a prize for the cookie with the most votes!


The other cookies included: Oreo Cheesecake Cookies, Snickerdoodles, Special K Cookies, No-bake Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookies, Gingerbread Ninjas, Caramel Pecan Turtles, Cream Cheese Cookies, and Chocolate Mint Cookies.


For the first time, we also had egg nog! There was a vote for it too but the winner at the end of the day was:


Snickerdoodles! Kiley made these and they were divine. I loved how soft and light they were. I may have hoarded a few of these just for myself. And the prize for the top cookie? More cookies! Jk, the prize was legit. The Miette cookbook, which I am also a proud owner of :) But truly, all the cookies were delicious! I can't wait for next year.
