Today is the day for the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap. Food bloggers around the world are flooding the internet today with cookie recipes. Earlier in the month we were each matched with three other bloggers that we sent a dozen of our cookies to and today we get to share our recipes!

I had so much fun participating this year! Not only was it fun to receive other’s cookies, but also to connect with other blogger. It turns out that Laura, from Main Line Feast who I sent cookies to, actually works in the same office park as I do. Isn’t that crazy!?!?!

For the cookie swap, I made Molasses Crinkle Cookies. They’re a classic in my family and we made many, many batches over the years. I’m going to admit, I don’t specifically like crispy cookies. I love the flavors of gingersnaps, but the crunch is not my favorite. These Molasses Crinkle Cookies have all the same molasses, gingery flavor while still being thick, soft and chewy.

    I don’t have wheat germ. Do you suppose I could just leave it out or would I need to add more flour or something?

      I really love the texture the wheat germ gives. But in a pinch I have used an extra 1/4 cup of flour as a replacement and hey have turned out well.
