Did I miss the pumpkin spice train? I hope not because I have a recipe that I have been meaning to post for weeks but haven’t had the chance. If you are friends with me in real life then you know I got pregnant in January and pretty much spent the first 20 weeks of my pregnancy sleeping. Man, who knew that growing a little human was so exhausting? Not me that is for sure. Then, I had a summer chock full of wedding and baby showers.

Black & White Almond Cookies (Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free)

When I was little, my grandmother used to spend the weeks leading up to Christmas baking pies, cookies, brownies, and various Italian confections.

Do you know what today is? Today is the day that the internet gets flooded with delicious cookie recipes from all of your favorite food bloggers, myself included. If you’ve been following me in Instagram, you’ve probably seen me posting various cookie pictures over the last few weeks and today you can get all the recipes because today is the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap recipe reveal day! 

What’s the Great Food Blogger Cookie Swap you ask? It’s a food blogger swap organized by Love & Olive Oil and The Little Kitchen benefiting Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a national non-profit organization that funds research to find new and improved treatments for pediatric cancer. I am so honored to be chosen among all of the bloggers that joined this year to benefit such a great cause.
