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 addition of oatmeal makes the cookie perfect. Not to mention, the full serving of love that is put in by a thoughtful baker :)

crispy on the outside, soft on the inside where every chip melts in your mouth

It needs to have a chewy, dough-ey center--but without being undercooked!

I had an amazing chocolate chip cookie at Leda's in Sherman Oaks once that had coconut and oatmeal in it, some kind of nut as well, I think. It's so good. Big soft chewy ones are also brilliant.

They've got to be soft and chewy and the chocolate chips have to be just barely melty.

December 14 | Unregistered Commenterwendy peatross

Soft and chewy, and slightly underbaked. And just out of the oven! There is nothing better than fresh chocolate chip cookies :) Mmmm I'm going to go make some now...

I love a CC cookie fresh out of the oven. It should be slightly crisp on the outside and warm, soft, and chewy on the inside. Pair it with a glass of ice cold milk and I am all set.

Mmmm, chocolate chip cookies have got to be the world's greatest baked good - I'm surprised they haven't used them to achieve world peace!

The best, IMHO, are crisp around the edges and slightly soft and chewy in the center, with a even ratio of barely melty chips to cookie.

In my opinion, underbaking chocolate chip cookies makes the ideal cookie. When they are underbaked by about 2 minutes, they stay nice and chewy! Also, there should be lots of chips.

December 15 | Unregistered Commenterrebekah

Chunks instead of chips or along with chips, the more chocolate the better!

December 15 | Unregistered CommenterLiz :)

I love lots of dark chocolate chips and a fine buttery crisp around the edges!

December 15 | Unregistered CommenterTory

It must be soft and chewy with lots of chocolate chips! Yum-O!!!!!

December 15 | Unregistered Commentercstrantz

The texture is so key - slightly crisp on the outside with a soft chew on the inside. And good quality chocolate, that you'd want to eat on its own.

December 15 | Unregistered CommenterRosa

The dough is my favorite part of the chocolate chip cookie: buttery and sweet, so that crisp edges taste like toffee and the middle of the cookie melts in your mouth. The chocolate chips are important too, gives a texture and bittersweet contrast to the cookie, but the dough is what makes or breaks a chocolate chip cookie for me!

*The perfect chocolate chip cookie has to be: -big!
-crispy on the edges
-chewy on the inside
-not too many chocolate

I love chocolate but sometimes it can be overpowering!*

First, it has to be homemade. Second, it has to be made with semi-sweet morsels. No milk chocolate...ack.
Thirdly, it has to be crisp around the edges and soft and chewy in the center.
Lastly, it can not be bigger than the glass you will use for your milk to dunk it in. This is so key. The dunkability is very, very, very important.

the perf chocolate chip cookie has to be chewy on the inside- VERY chewy- and the outside must be crisp and crunchy... and i also agree that it needs to stand up to a good milk dunking

thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Wow...those sound yummy and the artwork is fntastic!

Thanks for an encouraging post on writing, even if what I’m writing isn’t what I love. In my day job, I sometimes do technical writing and it is sooo boring. The readers don’t read it because they ‘want’ to, but because they ‘have’ to. At least I can make it as easy to read as possible, and care enough to reflect my best attempt.
