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:

Me, me...please, me!!! :)

I am pretty happy with all of them, unless the chips are milk chocolate. Panera makes a great one! :)

really super soft and chewy without too many chips. and i must admit, i like milk chocolate chips. i know, a travesty.

The cookie must be VERY soft and have a balanced amount of chocolate chips for the size of the cookie. =)

While some like a soft, chewy chocolate chip cookie, I like a crunchy one! :)

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterJodi

I like chewy chocolate chip cookies that aren't too sweet- the perfect balance of dough and chips - without having any one of those overpowering the cookie. :)

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterOCpenguin

definately the ratio of chips to batter. Must be LOTS of chips in every bite. Also, they have to be chewy...not crunchy!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterJon and Angela

Crispy edges, chewy middle, and lots of choc chips. Oats or peanut butter always make a choc chip cook that little bit better too..

A tad underbaked... dark chocolate chunks, not chips..and I double the vanilla to make them extra tasty!! Mmm. Thanks for another giveaway!

It has to be super moist, chewy, and LOADED with chocolate chips. No nuts of any kind either!

They have to be buttery, a bit salty, not overloaded with chips b/c the cookie itself is so yummy, and crisp. I'm anti chewy chocolate chip cookies. And no nuts.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterGamecockDoc

In my professional opinion, the perfect chocolate chip cookie has to be warm from the oven and soft accompanies by the occasional nut. In addition to that what is better to drink than milk with the nice gooey warm chocolate chip cookie?

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterThe Cox Family

I need a fair amount of chips, and I need the perfect texture -- somewhere between chewy and crisp. If I have a glass of cold, cold milk to go with that, I'm the happiest person in the world.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterKitten

Super chewy in the middle, crispy on the outside, and chips galore.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterKathryn

Crunchy outside, chewy inside, walnuts and semi sweet chocolate chunks...
Keep the cookies - I want those notecards!!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterJeanmarie

Ooh where to start? HEAPS of choc-chips (cadbury of course!) and it's got to be chewy in the middle, even a little underdone - and the cookies have to be warm! Yum - now I really want a cookie!

Oh and definitely - NO NUTS! :D

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterKatie

Homemade and slightly undercooked so that the whole thing is almost fall apart soft. Mmmmm. ^_^

I can tell you first what does NOT make up the ideal chocolate chip cookie...TOO MUCH SALT!
I've been reading the salt stuff floating on the web recently concerning chocolate chip cookies and thought I would try additional salt for flavor. I went way overboard and made a disgusting cookie.

However, a lack of salt, would lead to a cookie with no flavor.

So I would have to say the right amount of salt, combined with the traditional ingredients (and I am a nut fan), makes up the ideal chocolate chip cookie.

the ideal cookie:
in appearance: smooth in texture,and fresh brown. you see no chocolate chips on the cookie but taste suprise when eating the cookie.
chewy and sweet like marshmallows and leave an extreme sweet taste on your tongue even when you finished the cookie.
and the IDEAL part of this cookie is that you do not have to drink lots of water to get rid of this overwhelming sweeetness, but you would like to take have another similar cookie!

huge and flat, with a serious chew and a microscopic toffee-like shell that crisps slightly under the teeth. Dark chocolate, of course, never any nuts, nicely browned and *slightly* salty.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterLiz²

Huge. Crispy edges and chewy middle. Preferably with walnuts too!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterJamie Lovely

you have to have kick-ass, super high-quality chocolate. and CHUNKY!

December 11 | Unregistered Commenterkate

For me, the best cc cookie is somewhat thick, soft and chewy, but with a touch of crisp on the edge (not too much!). I like to put a little bit of cinnamon & nutmeg...and go heavy on the vanilla extract and chocolate chips!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterKim

Salt and a big glass of milk right next to it!
