I’ve never done something like this before. I sent cookies to three perfectly perfect strangers:) One from Texas, one from Florida, and one from Alaska. It was fun, and I was dang excited to participate. It was the 2nd Annual Food Blogger Cookie Swap. Who doesn’t love getting things in the mail. So thank you to the two lovely ladies who sent me and my family a treat. Ashton @ Something Swanky and Christine @ Chew Nibble Nosh. The family devoured the cookies! Before the cookies even made it into the house they were gone. (That’s saying a lot since all of the Clawson children are up to their eyeballs in cookies at the bakery. Our count is now up to 28,800 cookies to be baked and shipped by next week.) Both cookies we received were lovely. Ashton sent a glorious Salted Caramel Peanut Butter Truffle cookie, and Christine sent a scrumptious Pecan Raspberry Thumbprint cookie. I love those girls guts! Thanks again!!
So now on to what I sent. I decided on a Pistachio Wedding Cookie. The chocolate orange version graced the blog a few days ago, but these pistachio babies were the star. (Here’s a little story if you care about a Mexican Wedding cookie fiasco a few years ago.) I have always loved pistachio stuff. I loved Jello Pistachio pudding for Family Home Evenings, and I love the pistachio ice cream at Farr’s as a kid. The lovely pale green color was beautiful too. Thanks to the lovely Mother Thyme blog. That’s where I got the recipe, and I will forever be in her debt.
Happy Christmas baking!!
