cookieswaplogo2015Raspberry Swirl CookiesAnother year, another cookie swap! I haven’t been baking much but I didn’t want to miss out on this. So, I took some time and made a new recipe. I don’t make swirl cookies much, and this one with raspberry jam is pretty festive looking. Hopefully it ships well!

Raspberry Swirl Cookies-2I made the dough early and let it rest overnight. So easy. When making these sorts of swirl cookies, don’t bother trying to fiddle with flouring a work surface and such. Roll them out directly onto wax paper or even cling film and remove the paper/film as you roll. So much easier.

Raspberry Swirl Cookies-3I did make a batch of these with nuts but decided to leave them out for a swap partner just to be safe. Just finely chop them so the rolls don’t bulge out all weird.
