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 chips they myst be bittersweet or semi-sweet, so important to be like dark chocolate!

I like a nice firm but chewy chocolate chip cookie with dark chocolate chunks, like 60%. The part that makes them the best is sprinkling them with sea salt so you get that wonderful salty and sweet all in one. Mmmmm.....

Definitely need a high percentage of chocolate chips! And not too flat, with just a hint of extra salt. The best chocolate chip cookies are eaten right out of the freezer.

Chocolate chip cookies should have loads of halved walnuts in them. Chewy or crisp; either sort is good! YUM!

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

Soft and warm, with even distribution of chips...and no walnuts!

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterCyndi B.

The ideal chocolate chip cookie should be soft, almost slightly uncooked, but actually baked just so. It should be warm when eaten and the chocolate chips should still have shape, but should be melty when you bite into it. The cookie should then leave some chocolate smudges on your lips for a final taste to reminisce.

Chocolate chip cookies seem to be personal preference, but I believe they're always better the next day...if they last that long!!

i love a chocolate chip cookie without too many chips! i also prefer a crunchy cookie to chewy...

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterJessy

fresh out of the oven, warm with chewy edges...made with real butter, of course!

i'm always ok with shoving some ice cream between two of them and calling it a day, too. oh, ice cream sandwich heaven.

For me, the ideal chocolate chip cookie has lots of big, dark, swirly chocolate chips- really at least an equal part chocolate to cookie. Then the unexpected magic touch- flaky sea salt on top. Rich, sweet and salty- warm from the oven with a hot cup of green tea. YUM!

December 12 | Unregistered Commenterkate

Lots of Chocolate chips, Toasted pecans, real butter and vanilla. Also, ideally warm from the oven, crispy on the outside, chewy on the inside. And most importantly does not taste like its been preserved and will last forever.

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterGigi

The fact that it is headed for my mouth!

I'm not picky!

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterLisa

mmmm melty goodness
veganness/non-gluten preferred.

December 12 | Unregistered Commentercaro

1. thin 2. chewy inside 3. slightly crunchy outside 4.quality chocolate 5.hint of spices
or, 6. under cooked and good vanilla ice cream on top!

Soft, chewy, and not too sweet. Maybe a little salt. Now I'm hungry.

December 12 | Unregistered Commentercraftybitch

The ideal chocolate chip cookie? Well, it's gotta be chewy (preferably a little gooey, in fact-- I like 'em underdone). I also really love a good oatmeal chocolate chip cookie. Nice and chewy and soft and oatmealy.

But really, I guess-- it's gotta be very chocolate-chippy and nice and soft.

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterBritt

I like mine flat and buttery, chewy on the inside and crispy edges, a little salty anf packed with chocolate chips.

Yup. Perfect.

My very very ideal chocolate chip cookie would have no chocolate chips. haha. I love the cookie part so much I need more of it! My second favorite is one of those giant cookies with vanilla ice cream on it, though. Shared with my mom of course. Probably after a hard day of shopping.

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterCassykins

Makes you think doesn't it. To me the thing that makes up the ideal chocolate chip cookie is love/meaningfulness. (kind of mushy,I know but true)
Something made with family and friends, something from the heart.


December 12 | Unregistered Commenterx009kitty

crispy edges, chewy middle, chocolate that stays melted.

December 12 | Unregistered Commenterrew

The perfect chip-to-dough ratio: the richness of the chocolate shouldn't overpower the sugar and butter flavors of the cookie. I also love a warm, gooey center.

December 12 | Unregistered Commentersra.

I would have to say a chocolate chip cookie with a balanced amount of chocolate chips, like 6-9 chips per cookie, chunky because of being more on the cakey and soft side rather than thin and crunchy :) This would be my ideal chocolate chip cookie!


December 12 | Unregistered Commentereclectic works

My favorite chocolate chip cookies are chewy and not too cakey or crispy. My dad loves them very crisp, which I can tolerate but I don't love.

I love when I find a chunk of brown sugar in my cookie. I look at them and try to find the ones with the amber windows of goodness.

I have contemplated letting my brown sugar sit out and get nice and hard and throw in some of those chunks at the last minute.

I will have to have on in the next few days.

Chewy guts but crispy edges!
