Hehehe last week I got my official Foodblogger cookie swap e-mail.

I was pretty much ( read: totally) bouncing off the walls!! I’ve participated in the past and to be honest, there’s nothing that gets me in the holiday spirit more than cookies.

Oh and Santa of course … speaking of which – the big guy made his appearance this past weekend!!

This of course makes it okay for me to even start talking about Christmas!! Some of our stores have already started playing carols … too early?!? When do you put up your tree? Is it already up? I have a feeling ours won’t go up for at least a couple weeks … I’m thinking at least until the first weekend of December. The holiday season is always a special time for my family and I – and cookies only sweeten the deal.

Even if you’re not quite in the holiday spirit just yet ( and yes, I know there’s still American Thanksgiving) it’s always a good time for cookies!!

These particular cookies are a new mixture of sweet and savory – they’re cake like and definitely a heightened version of an everyday chocolate chunk cookie. And the colour and smell of the mango baking away are sure to tantalize your taste buds… also, look how yellow they are!!
