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:

The perfect cookie shuld be bigger then my hand, with a chewy center and crispy edges, warm and when you break it in half the chips should melt....MMMMM MMMMM YUMMYYY!!!!

Choclates and walnuts

December 11 | Unregistered Commentercarogonza

Soft, slightly chewy, with a little crust; warm; the chocolate still melty. Yum!

For me, changing it into a snickerdoodle. I don't like them. But, for my children, it would be using fresh butter, fresh eggs (from the hen house), and adding freshly ground whole wheat flour for a little nuttiness. The fresher your ingredients, the better the cookie. At least that is what they tell me.

It has to be cakey, chewy and have just the right amount of saltiness!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterRachel

Crisp around the edges, gradually turning into a soft, buttery,chocolaty mix. The closer to the middle the softer it gets. The chips must still be a little warm. This is the perfect chocolate chip cookie. Oh...and a nice cold glass of milk on the side:)

For me, my perfect chocolate chip cookie is the Nestle Tollhouse recipe. It contains the perfect amount of chocolate and butter taste.

December 11 | Unregistered Commenteremilyrena

It has to be the ratio of chips to batter. Too many chips make it too chocolately and too much batter is borning.

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterJennie

OH boy, what a fantastic question! Well, like many people out there, I love a cookie that is huge and soft, almost cake-like, with a high enough cookie-to-chip ratio to keep the chocolate from overpowering the doughy delight. I also think that a touch of salt is key to balancing the flavor. But most importantly, I want my cookie to be just as amazingly delicious at room temperature as it is when it's fresh out of the oven. Anyone can make delicious cookies hot out of the oven! It's the cookies that stay scrumptious after they've cooled completely that are, in my opinion, truly special. :-)

It has to be crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside. It has to be buttery, chocolaty, and a little salty. Also, it has to be WITHOUT nuts. YUCK! OH! and there has to be a lot of them baked and ready just for me! :D

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterMorenaTejana

my ideal chocolate chip cookie is one w/out chocolate chips! crazy, i know! i like them both ways but w/out has been my favorite since i was a youngin. :)

December 11 | Unregistered Commenternicole green

must be soft- with more cookie than chocolate. And a cold glass of milk is a must!

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterPie

It should be chewy with no nuts. Crispy cookies are like crackers. What's the point? Oh, and there is no substitute for butter.

A sprinkle of salt on top just after baking makes for the perfect combo of sweet and salty....Mmmm! :)

December 11 | Unregistered CommenterCasey

Hugh Chocolate chunks and a pinch of Fleur de sel

December 11 | Unregistered Commenterrd rache

Real butter, pecans... and someone else making them! LOL YUMMY! Makes me want some now. Anyone up for some baking? LOL

December 12 | Unregistered Commentertexasjodylynn

I'm all about the soft, chewy cookie all around - and the best way to guarantee that is to eat them before they cool! Then you get melty chocolate too.

Lately, I've been adding a bit of almond extract which adds amazing flavor.

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterZoe

The ideal chocolate chip cookie: tastes like when you were 7-years-old and gives warm comfort that nothing else like it can. Oh, and huge chocolate chunks!

December 12 | Unregistered Commentersillycoincidences

The best chocolate chip cookie is right out of the oven...warm, gooey and soft! Just barely crisp on the outside with gently melted chocolate chunks all the way through!

December 12 | Unregistered Commentersnarflemarfle

If it is soft chewy its perfect!!


December 12 | Unregistered CommenterRedcinamn

OH, I love chocolate chip cookies. I am so not picky! Chewy or crisp it's the chocolate that makes the cookie.

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterJenn

I like soft cookies with the chips that are melted even after the cookie is 2 days old.... OH... and it has to be good dunked in ice cold milk. :)

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterL

The day is just not complete without a good chocolate chip cookie! I prefer cookies to be "crunchewy" ... crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle. I love it when I can taste good quality ingredients, like milk chocolate (Guittard is my FAVORITE!) Above all, I must be able to break off a piece of the cookie without it falling apart. Oooh... and no burned bottoms, please. :)

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterChelsea

It's got to be light & fluffy and CHEWY, mmmm...also it should have chocolate chunks rather than chips but if it does only have chips that's not a deal breaker :)

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterBear Silber

Homemade chocolate chip cookies are my absolute favorite cookie! The edges must be slightly crisp, but the middle still very soft and chewy with just a hint of cinnamon and the darker the chocolate, the better.
