Cookie Giveaway!!

To show my appreciation for my lovely readers, I’m excited to announce a giveaway! The other day I whipped up a secret recipe that made enough batter for 168 mini cookies. No joke. I gave some to Erica, Amanda, and Mary, brought a bunch of batter to make at the HMH Dinner Sunday night, and I still have a ton of frozen dough. And what better way express my love for you all than by giving you homemade cookies by yours truly!?

I can’t give out the actual recipe, but I will say that the cookies contain chocolate chips, oats, rice crisp cereal, and walnuts. If you’d like to enter but have an allergy, I can make you something else. ๐Ÿ™‚

To enter, leave me a comment telling me your favorite cookie! If you have a recipe, I’d love to see that too.

For additional entries, become a follower of my blog, tweet about this giveaway, or mention it on your blog.ย The giveaway will end at noon on Sunday, October 16th. I will randomly choose one entry using a random # generator.

Aaaannnnd for another chance at winning something, check out the giveaway featured on Amanda’s blog!ย 

Good luck and love you all! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Favorite cookies include: PB&J cookies, PB and Pretzel M&M cookies, and snickerdoodles!

  • My favorite cookie would definitely be oatmeal. Any kind..but if I had to choose I’d go with oatmeal butterscotch. ๐Ÿ™‚ The texture’s what gets me, though.

  • Wow those look awesome. I’m vegan though, so I’m guessing (even though the recipe’s secret) that I can’t eat them. That’s okay though, you’ve got me thinking of my favorite (vegan) cookies.
    1. Chocolate mocha – this one’s actually best in dough form.
    2. Peanut butter pretzel. Mmm. SO good.

  • This is a very exciting offer! My favorite cookies were in a magazine recently and they are called Trail Mix Freezer Cookies. You’re supposed to freezed the dough, but I actually made the cookies and froze them. I let them thaw a little and they are so satisfying. My husband microwaves his. AWESOME!

  • Those cookies look freaking amazing! My favorite kind of cookie is either oatmeal, peanut butter, or chocolate chip. I actually have a recipe for that combo here: http://foodfitnessandfun.wordpress.com/2010/10/01/peanut-butter-oatmeal-cookies/
