Mom of three - 18, 17 6!

As you probably know, Swig Cookies are all the rage in Utah. They are so stinkin’ good and I find myself craving them on a regular basis. Our sister, Elise, was doing a fundraiser here in Idaho and made these Swig Cookies in a bunch of different varieties, mixing and matching cookie recipes and frosting recipes. Needless to say, they were the first cookies at the fundraiser to go (by a landslide).
