It's All About the Cookie: Another Impromptu Giveaway!

Cookie Giveaway
This time of year, there's one thing on our mind above all other things: cookies. It's true: we're totally not above raiding Santa's secret stash in the middle of the night on Christmas Eve.

And what better way to celebrate this than by having another bonus giveaway (in addition to our monthly Cake Poll, which we'll still have later on this month)?
My Kids Cookies
Gift Box, My Kids CookiesCards
Since nothing's better than a care package by mail, My Kids' Cookies has generously offered to donate a semi-sweet chocolate chip cookie gift box. Sweet! Nestled in a bed of white tissue paper, this delectable semi-sweet treat is bound to make your day far more delicious. But wait, there's more: to sweeten the deal, the lucky winner will also receive a pack of Cakespy notecards (from the Cakespy shop) too!

To enter (US only this time, please!), just leave a comment before 12pm PST on Monday, December 15th, weighing in on this important issue:
What, in your opinion, makes up the ideal chocolate chip cookie?

The edges must be crisp, but the middle still very soft and chewy. The darker the chocolate, the better.

Lots o' chips. Yum!

My mom used to put a little cinnamon in her homemade chocolate chip cookies. This made for an extra special bargaining chip at the lunch table in elementary school. I didn't dare profess to knowing the secret ingredient (because cinnamon seems sort of...anticlimactic), but could get two storebought cupcakes or an icecream bar for just one of my mom's little cookies.
I like a soft cookie best, with a padded cookie to chip ratio. Less chips, more cookie. Chips should be a surprise, not a given...

I love a cakey cookie. One that is poofed up and chewey on the inside. http://beantownbaker.blogspot.com/2008/11/ultimate-chewy-and-soft-chocolate-chunk.html" REL="nofollow">These are some great chocolate chip cookies.

Soft cookie and not too, too many chips. And a glass of milk to go along with it.

I swear, these giveaways just keep getting better and better!! I love a chocolate chip cookie that's dense and chewy, maybe just a tad crunchy on the outside edge. With melty, gooey chips in it, of course!

December 11 | Unregistered Commenterdietdessertndogs

The perfect chocolate chip cookie is straight out of the oven, soft, with the chips melting! Every bite should contain a chocolate chip!

Man this makes me hungry....

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterNikki V

I agree with Layla- crisp edges, chewy center, dark chocolate. And make mine thick!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterJodie

I prefer my chocolate chip cookies slightly underbaked. They firm up as they cool, but are still ooey-gooey when you eat them. I also think they need to have more cookie, less chips. In fact, I have even made chocolate chip-less chocolate chip cookies with just the dough and no chocolate!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterAmalas

Oh it's gotta be chewy and straight out of the oven. I love warm, just-baked cookies with chocolate that just melt in your mouth!


December 11 | Unregistered Commenterpinkbishie

warm, gooey, slightly undercooked, melty chips. done!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterEB of SpiceDish

I really like it to be crispy one the edges and chewing in the middle. I love to taste vanilla.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterKC

ooey gooey straight outta the oven. when you bite into it and you get melted chocolate all over your face & hands....ahhh cookie perfection :)

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterNichole

The perfect amount of chocolate chips is very important! Also, I hear that if you double the amount of butter, they will be the best cookies ever. Why does fat have to be the thing that makes everything taste so good?

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterCupcake Activist

Big, chewy and just the right amount of semi-sweet chips.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterKristin

I like very few chocolate chips in mine. Buttery, a little salty, and chewy.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterAli

Warmth and a big glass of milk.


December 11 | Unregistered CommenterCasasailer

The ideal chocolate chip cookie must be slightly warm, for starters! It must be "melty" to be truly good. Also...nothing extra in it! No nuts or berries, or other add-ins. Just chocolate chips.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterJingle

Lots o' chips and no nuts.

The ultimate chocolate chip cookie: soft, puffy, warm with lots of chips, no nuts, and a hint of salt. There's nothing better!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterCandy Yum Yum

I love the really flat ones! With not too many but def not too few chocolate chips! They are moist but have a little crisp to them on the outer edges!

December 11 | Unregistered Commenterellecupcake

Being warm makes the cookie so much better! Chewy, thick, thin, chippy or not - if it's straight from the oven - I'm in!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterCake for Breakfast

really good chocolate and really good butter. also, a little salt. and really as little baking as possible. I prefer the dough straight from the mixer!
