It's officially 2019 and I want to reflect on which recipes were my most popular recipes of 2018. Do you want to see what everyone's favorite recipes were on Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt last year? ME TOO!
I can't believe I've been blogging since February of 2013. You may notice that some.. well, most of these recipes are from years other than 2018. Two of the recipes on the list are even recipes that I updated last year. I took new photos of them and reformatted the post with some great tips and tricks.
Are you wondering how I determined this list? The answer is pretty simple. I just used my Google analytics which is just all the visitor stats for Cookie Dough and Oven Mitt. I grabbed the top 25 recipes that brought most of the traffic.
