Cookies for a Cause

Yesterday I had the pleasure of attending the Boston #CookieSwap for a Cause, put on by the always fabulous Swapaholics and Boston Food Swap. The event was an all-out, sugar coma inducing event where every cookie brought would provide a donation to Cookies for Kids' CancerI'm a huge fan of swapping and a passionate baker, so this was an easy way to combine two of my favorite things into one event for a good cause.

This was one of the biggest swaps I've ever been to, with about 150 other bakers on hand to help the cause. Joining me in the cookie festivities was Kristen, and after setting up our cookies and brownies, we were off to snag the goodies.

I love this description of the recipe!
Each swapper received a Gladware container to fill with delicious cookies. As you can see, we did some serious damage.

 Once we grabbed our tasty swag, Kristen and I had some fun taking photos with Santa. 
This was such a great event, and I really hope there are more swaps like this to come! Now if you'll excuse me, there are some cookies calling my name.
