Find Out Which Brands These Bloggers Relied on for Cookie Month ’14

Great recipes begin with a bit of creativity but most importantly, great ingredients. During National Cookie Month, several of our favorite bloggers teamed up with a few national brands that they felt represented some of the best quality ingredients in the industry. Armed with a strong ingredient foundation and the proper tools to get the job done, these bloggers went to work creating a month’s worth of top-quality cookies.

From Joybilee Farm’s Trail Mix cookies to the Maple Biscotti over on The Monday Box blog, the creativity has been flowing to highlight some of the best ingredients in the business.

    Glad to share! I was wondering what you thought about cutting these out with different shapes? Do you think they would hold? Then maybe use the scraps to sprinkle over ice cream? Can't wait to try the recipe!
