Announcing Eat Christmas Cookies, Season 2! A Food Blog(ga) Event


Yup, it is currently 89 degrees in San Diego (it was 93 degrees at the mall, where I was earlier). November 15th, and it's 90 degrees. This is hard for a New England girl to comprehend.

Sweat was pouring down my back as I marched through a tinsel tinged mall, listening to Christmas Carols. Weird.

So when I got home, I had to get things moving, and there is only way to do that: Let's start Eat Christmas Cookies, Season 2! You can check out last year's amazing round-up of cookies from around the world.

So start baking and send me any and all Christmas cookies; truffles and brownies count too. Just no pies or cakes, please. Santa really prefers cookies.

Here's how you can participate:

Post about a Christmas cookie from today, November 15th through Sunday, December 21st at midnight PST. I will be posting your recipes as I receive them, so the earlier you send them in, the more likely someone else will see your recipe and try it for Christmas.

Within the post:
  • Please link to this page so others can participate.
  • CHANGE as of Dec 19th. Please link to the new Round-Up, Part 2 page so people can see the cookies as they are posted here. Part 1 can be found here.
  • If you really want to score some points with Santa this year, then you can also put the festive Christmas Cookie Logo below.


Email your entry to foodblogga [at] yahoo [dot] com, and put Christmas Cookies as the subject. In the e-mail please include:
  • Your preferred name
  • Where you live
  • Your blog’s name and URL
  • The URL of your entry
  • The name of the cookie
  • If you know how to re-size pictures, then please send along a 200 X 200 pixel pic of your cookies. If I don't see a re-sized pic attached, then I'll come get it at your blog.
  • Multiple entries are allowed.
Don’t have a blog but would like to participate? No problem. Just email me your name, location, recipe, and brief description or story about the cookies. Please attach a 200 X 200 pixel picture to the email if you’d like it to accompany your recipe.

Questions? Leave them below or Email me.

I'll take 89 degrees over 33 degrees (which is is now in Montana) any day!

Can't wait to get my cookie recipe in and read all the others... what a fun idea!

Anali said...

I'll be participating again Susan! But I can't really focus on Christmas until after Thanksgiving. After that, I'll start choosing my cookies.

Oh and the weather was even warm here back in New England. It was humid and in the high 60's yesterday.

Christine said...

I'm so not the cookie baker in my family, but your invitation is so, well, inviting that might just have to join in. As Anali said, I'll have to wait until Thanksgiving is over to focus on this. I'm looking forward to it!

Wendy said...

Wonderful. I was intending on perfecting Finnish pippurikakku this year and now I have an extra reason to. :)

Culinarywannabe said...

Oh fun!! And I'll trade my cold, damp weather for your heat anyday!! :)

Annie said...

Sounds like the most reasonable thing to do to me! :)
Send me some of that heat to RI, ok Susan?
I have the perfect cookie in mind. I'll be posting soon!

Dragon said...

I've got the perfect cookie for you! I'll be sending to you after I post it. :)

I just scored some points with Santa--I put your cookie logo on my sidebar. :)
I'll be sending in some "Snowball" cookies next week.
I know what you mean about the temps being in the 80s and 90s around the holidays. I live in San Antonio and it's so weird to see all the Christmas decorations next to the palm trees.
