So, Mama’s sportin’ a new tattoo these days that reads, “I never met a cookie I didn’t like!”. Anyone who knows me, know’s that that’s true. In some circles I’m known as the Countess of Cookies or the Duchess of Dough. Come on, everyone needs a cool nickname, right. So now that I’ve established that I may have a somewhat unhealthy obsession with our friend, the cookie, let me tell you how I put that obsession to good use. This month, I had the privilege of participating in the fundraiser Cookies For Kid’s Cancer, a non-profit organization that raises funds for pediatric cancer research. They’re an awesome organization. Over 600 foodbloggers from around the world participated in the event which raised over $13,000 for the charity. That’s a lot of dough, for a lot of dough if you know what I mean. This was a worldwide cookie swap. I sent a dozen cookies each to three foodbloggers, and in return I received cookies from three fellow foodbloggers. Yes, Mama was in cookie heaven, and no, I didn’t share.

The cookie I chose to send to my designated recipients were these Lemon Glazed Cookies. I packaged them in white, vintage canisters, and I hope my fellow bloggers enjoyed them as much as I do. I also wanted to acknowledge the two bloggers who worked so hard to put this event together. They are Lindsay, from Love & Olive Oil, and Julie from The Little Kitchen. So let’s give these ladies a big round of applause. And so my dear readers, I wish you all a warm and wonderful holiday season, however you may celebrate it. And, if you’re so inclined I urge you to click on the Cookies For Kids Cancer website and send a little love their way.

  1. Hi, Sheryl,
    What a great cause. I am looking it up right now. How kind of you to share this philanthropic opportunity with all of us – and an amazing recipe, too. I am drooling over your cookies – I am eating way too many these days, too (or, alternatively, not enough!).
    Warm regards,
    Shanna

  2. Lemmon and chocolate bake goods are my favorites, although maybe not in the same recipe. Good cause. This week in Italy we have the telethon for the research in children’s degenerating diseases, which unfortunately seem to be on the rise. How sad, sure isn’t fair, but one of the doctors that is in one of the research teams says there almost there. It’s the first time I heard such optimisim.

  3. Lovely lemon cookies! The extra bit of lemon juice in the glaze really makes that citrus flavor pop! Lucky, recipients to get these cookies in such pretty canisters! I also participated in the swap. Its a wonderful uniting cause and a fun way to “meet” some new bloggers.
