Monthly Mingle 28: Spiced Cookies Roundup

MM spice cookies_roundup

What a lovely mingle this was. You all came over with bundles of delicious, aromatic, spiced cookies. We had them all from Pffernüsse, Florentines to Speculaas and Gingersnaps! The mingle has never before smelled so wonderful. I'd like to thank everyone for your fantastic entries and especially creating such special treats exclusively for the mingle.

Come join me and celebrate a World of Spice Cookies!

51OehUjVyuL._SL210_ I was not alone this mingle! My lovely blogger friend Anita of Dessert First joins me to pick out the one lucky winner from all the submitted entries.

For those who read Anita's blog will know that she has recently published her first book: Field Guide to Cookies: How to Identify and Bake Virtually Every Cookie Imaginable!

She recently sent me my very own signed copy and let me tell you, this cookie bible includes not only over 100 cookie recipes but offers helpful baking notes and fascinating historical trivia. Each cookie is photographed in glorious full color with step-by-step instructions on how to prepare, bake, serve and store your creations.

Anita will be sending a copy of this cookie book to the lucky winner she picks. I'll announce the winner as soon as the winner is revealed to me. Stay tuned!

Now lets indulge in a few spiced cookies! I've divided the entries in two categories this time: Sweet and Savory. You'll find the lovely pictures to each of the entries in the Spiced Cookie picture gallery.
