GLAD's Holiday Cookie Exchange!

A few weeks ago, I was chosen by Foodbuzz to host a GLAD Holiday Cookie Exchange! Through November and December, GLAD has been holding a virtual cookie exchange on their Facebook page as part of their Glad to Give campaign. For every cookie exchanged, they're donating 10¢ to Cookies for Kids' Cancer. So click on over there and raise money for the children! To help us spread the word about the campaign, Brownie and I hosted our own cookie exchange with a little help from GLAD and Foodbuzz.

Momofuku Cornflake Cookie
For our exchange, we didn't want to get too seasonal. Everyone's going to be eating gingerbread men and snowflakes for the next month, so we went a little wackier route with two Momofuku Milk Barnge, then keep track of the cookies exchanged! inspired cookies, plus a few simple others. The first Momofuku cookie was the Cornflake-Chocolate Chip. Caramelized cornflakes, chocolate chips, and gooey marshmallows make this one perfect cookie. The best recipe out there can be found on

Momofuku Compost Cookie
The other one I brought was the imitation compost cookie. This was a *huge* hit last year and I plan on giving out more than a few this year. The recipe was made public on Live with Regis and Kelly a few years back, and I still use it (via Amateur Gourmet) despite the official cookbook coming out earlier this year. One of my favorite at the exchange ended up bring drool-worthy Snickerdoodles. One of the best recipes I know of for these is found in the classic "Joy of Cooking".

Pumpkin Spice Cookies
One of Brownie's friends also dropped off some moist Pumpkin Spice and Apple Oatmeal cookies. These ones help offset the sweetness from the others, and made us feel a little bit healthier about sitting around and eating cookies all afternoon. Anyone can hold a bake sale or cookie exchange to help raise money for the charity. Simply go to GLAD's Facebook app, and register your excha

*Full disclosure: I was sent a huge box of goodies from GLAD including containers, snowflake cookie cutters, a Williams-Sonoma cookie sheet, an OXO cookie flip and 5-quart mixing bowl, and I am receiving a stipend from Foodbuzz to cover the cost of ingredients. This exchange and post were done as part of Foodbuzz and GLAD's Tastemaker program.*
