I received some lovely salted caramel and chocolate macaroons from Fiona, a batch of buttery shortbread with sour cherries and almonds from Miss Whiplash and, lastly, coconut and oatmeal raisin cookies from the lovely Jen of Blue Kitchen Bakes. Their recipes (along with all others from cookie swap) are due to be published today so be sure to check them out.
I thought long and hard about what to make. I had my recipe and ingredients all ready but then had a complete change of heart at the 11th hour. I had planned to make melomakarona (Greek honey cookies) but, lovely as they are, they don't really travel well. So I decided to make my cinnamon cookies instead.
