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?

For me, 2 best parts about a chocolate chip cookie is the crunchy edges/soft chewy middle and the little hit of salty flavor mingling w/ the bittersweet chocolate.... Mmm....

Really Good Bittersweet chips...
And they are also better the second day.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterEllen

Warm, chocolatey, with strawberries and milk!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterShelly

A bit of saltiness, warm enough that the chocolate is all melty. mmmm

Crackly on top, but still chewy. Well rounded and slightly thick like a ball that went perfectly flat. Enough salt to just notice it. Good quality chocolate chips. Half wheat flour for that nutty whole grain taste. Good quality chocolate chips. Love.

Oh, goodness. Thinking about it made me crave a chocolate chip cookie like crazy. Straight from the oven please! Deliciously melted chips. Not too much chocolate that it consumes the cookie, though. Mmm mmm.

Caramel-butterscotch undertones, chewy middle (intentionally, not because it was undercooked), crispy edges, and the chocolate chips can't overwhelm the cookie part. Maybe a hint of espresso powder, too.

The perfect chocolate cookie has to have a couple of things to make me happy.

One is the chips or chunks have to be semi-sweet of some sort.

You also have to be generous with the chips. I hate receiving a cookie where at the end I can count the chips on one hand.

As this particular cookie maker, my tastes lean heavily towards soft cookies that are still warm from the oven. Let is sit about 10 minutes then indulge and enjoy! I don't want to win this cookies since I'm making it. Just wanted to put my two cookie cents in!

An ideal chocolate chip cookie has craisins in it as well!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterLolliCakes

I like a slightly under cooked cookie-very moist in the middle with the edges a bit firmer and of course double the chocolate called for in the recipe. Nothing too buttery-I hate a cookie that tastes like a stick of butter.

The best CC cookie is a classic. Semi-sweet chips like molten lava, still-warm chewy cookie with just barely crunchy edges, and a huge glass of cold milk. Can't go wrong there!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterMeg

chewy and lots of milk chocolate chips! pecans are a bonus. :-)

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterMelanie

They have to be about 3-4inches in size and still warm and gooey when you take a bite. :)

I love using milk chocolate chips instead of semi-sweet. I think what makes it is the softness----I always put a piece of bread in my cookie jar--- it makes them oh so soft!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterMB

Crispy edge but soft in the center. Not too sweet. I always prefer to make it myself rather than buying from stores. Big chocolate chunks are also ideal!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterOrangy

Soft and with lots of chocolate chips!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterJessica

The ideal chocolate cookie must NOT be too hard or too soft. It must have a tender bite; a good amount of good quality chocolate chips with each bite; and still warm from the oven!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterLiz

Making the best chocolate chip cookie is easy: use lots of chocolate!!! ;-)

Thanks for the giveaway!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterLindsey

For me my chocolate chip cookies need to be warm and gooey. Also, a lot of chocolate chips is a must!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterTori

My ideal chocolate chip cookie is neither hard nor gooey but somewhere in between. Oh and it has to have chunks instead of chips :)

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterLadytink_534

I would agree with others who say crispy edge with gooey middle and I like pecans in mine!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterVallie

Big, chewey, NO NUTS, sweet with a hint of salty buttery goodness. Just the right amount of chips... Yummy...

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterDori

Just the right number of chips in a tasty dough.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterConnieC

no chips- CHUNKS!
