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 ideal chocolate chip must be chewy, soft, and thick. It should have either small, dainty chocolate chips or large chunks. It shouldn't be too sweet, either .

A little bit of oatmeal makes them nice and chewy. I love it!

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterMissy

I like them when they're too thin and kind of crispy. I messed up on a recipe once and they came out like that, I loved it! But I haven't been able to mess them up that good since!

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterJennifer

They must be crispy and I prefer milk chocolate chips to semi-sweet ships! Hershey's chocolate perferably!

December 12 | Unregistered Commenterlife is a blessing

Chewy without crisp, thick enough to have soft almost underbaked centers, and LOTS of GOOD quality chocolate!!

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterFoodhobo Girl

I like mine vegan...so I can safely eat as much as dough as I want!!!

December 12 | Unregistered CommenterMiss Sarah

Hmmm, the best chocolate chip cookie....good quality chocolate and a cookie part that is chewy around the edges and soft in the middle.

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterRigby

more chocolate than dough, crispy outside rim, chewy interior. not too brown. calorie-free. :)

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterGrace

Cookies... yay!
Ultimate chocolate chip cookies must contain milk chocolate and an added scraped vanilla bean. I'm a vanilla gal.

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterRecipeGirl

The chewiness of the cookie, the coolness of the chocolate which melts when bitten into and the sweet caramel taste into which all flavours are interwined. =)

I love it when chocolate chip cookies have that brown sugar-y taste. My husband, however, loves them fluffy and cake-y. Good quality chocolate chips are always important!

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterDianna

I believe that they HAVE to be soft. Slightly under-baked. IF they are crunchy... they taste old, dry and terrible!

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterTeresa

Plenty of salt. Not salty, but so few chocolate chip cookies have enough salt.

I don't really prefer soft over hard or vice versa, but I think ideally they should be crispy at the edges with a gentle centre. Yum!!

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterEva

Not too sweet - let the flavors come through.

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterChristopher

The best chocolate chip cookie is crisp on the edges and soft in the center. They have to have really good dark chocolate chips...and lots of them.I prefer large chips or perhaps chunks.

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterSusan

Nothing like biting into a crisp buttery chocolate chip cookie.

They need to have semi sweet chips, real butter and be baked so they are crisp but not brittle. Yum I think I may just have to go bake me some chocolate chip cookies!

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterAmanda in GA

Brown sugar flavor
Crispy on outside w/just a touch of gooeyness inside.

and THIN...mine alway come out too fat.

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterQuee

It has to be large, fat, melt-in-your mouth chewy and of course have lots of chocolate chips!!!

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterElina

It must be large, warm, chewy with lots of chocolate chunks.

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterInnaC

Extremely moist and slightly chewy with TONS of bitter/semi-sweet chocolate chunks (quality chocolate of course)!

December 13 | Unregistered CommenterFuji Mama

A mix of sugars, high quality chips -- not too many of them! -- crisp edges and a chewy centre, definitely.

December 13 | Unregistered Commenteramanda

A perfect chocolate chip cookie is one that I get to dunk in a glass of milk after the kids are in bed! ;)

December 13 | Unregistered Commentershannon

Lots of chocolate chips and delicious crispy edges!

December 14 | Unregistered CommenterHeto

Lots of butter and chocolate chips!! Yum!
