Cookie Exchange - Cardamom Spiced Cookie

Again this year, the Savour Sisters registered to be a part of the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. It brings together an international group food bloggers to participate in a massive cookie exchange. This year we are again excited to be partnering with COOKIES FOR KIDS’ CANCER, a national non-profit organization committed to funding new therapies used in the fight against pediatric cancer. Each participant makes a donation in addition to their cookie contribution. In total, this swap raised over thirteen thosand dollars! A huge thank you goes to Lindsay from Love and Olive Oil, and Julie from The Little Kitchen for all their hard work in organizing this great event. I would also like to thank the fantastic bloggers that sent cookies to us, check them out:
