Virtual Cookie Swap and Giveaway

November 27, 2009

Julie of Booking Mama and I enjoyed bringing you The Twelve Days of Christmas Cookies and hope you enjoyed it too.  Now that they’re over, we’re hoping you’ll share one of your tried and true recipes on your blog.  (If you don’t have a blog, leave your recipe in the comments or send me an email.)

After you post your recipe, please leave a link, using Mr. Linky,  for your traditional cookie recipes here and for your candy and chocolate cookie recipes on Julie’s blog.  To encourage (and reward) participation we’re both offering prizes.  We both have a prize pack for one lucky reader and a copy of The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman for another.  (Copies of The Christmas Cookie Club have been provided by Simon & Schuster.)  Because of the cost of postage, only those in the US and Canada are eligible to win the prize pack, but international readers can enter to win the book.  Winners will be chosen at random and you’re welcome to enter on both blogs!  You have until December 4 to link your post – prizes will be awarded on December 5.

Items included in the prize pack I’m giving away include:

  • The Christmas Cookie Club by Ann Pearlman
  • square “Snow Days” cookie plate by St. Nicholas Square
  • 2 small cookie cookbooks
  • sprinkles
  • spatulas
  • cookie scoop
  • snowman cookie cutter
  • 2 oz. Ghiradelli chocolate peppermint coffee
  • magnetic snowman notepad

Please join us and share one of your favorite cookie recipes.

    It would be great to figure out how to make this real life instead of just virtual! :–)

    Even though they have chocolate in them, they are really a traditional cookie to us.

    How fun! I like rhapsody’s idea of an IRL cookie exchange … I’ll host, y’all just need to get here! 🙂

    I am off to work on my post now…. I am doing my favorite cookie which is really a dangerous one for me to have in the house. 🙂

    This was a great idea that you and Julie had. Thanks for pulling it all together. Can’t wait to look over everyone’s recipes!

    This has been so much fun! I posted my recipe on my personal blog because my poor Worducopia has been a tad neglected lately, it would probably be extremely offended if I suddenly popped in to post a recipe. 😉

  11. November 27, 2009 8:18 pm

    I will be visiting this post a lot to check out everyone’s recipes..what a great idea this was!

  12. November 27, 2009 9:24 pm

    Thank you for all of the recipes! I’ve bookmarked and printed out so many new recipes to try that I’ll probably never get to them all! Am in Cookie Heaven! *L*

    I hope this is okay. It’s a recipe from Chocolate Chip Cookie Murder by Joanne Fluke and everyone that has ever tried them says they are the best chocolate chip cookies they’ve ever had.

    Chocolate Chip Crunch Cookies

    Preheat oven to 375#degrees
    rack in the middle position

    1 cup of butter (2 sticks, melted)
    1 cup white sugar
    1 cup brown sugar
    2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 teaspoon salt
    2 teaspoons vanilla
    2 beaten eggs (you can beat them up with a fork)
    2 ½ cups flour (not sifted)
    2 cups crushed corn flakes (just crush them with your hands)
    1-2 cup chocolate chips

    Melt butter, add the sugars and stir. Add soda, salt, vanilla, and beaten eggs. Mix well. Then add flour and stir it in. Add crushed corn flakes and chocolate chips and mix it all thoroughly.

    Form dough into walnut-sized balls with your fingers and place on a greased cookie sheet, 12 to a standard sheet. Press them down with a floured or greased fork in a crisscross pattern (the same method as peanut butter cookies).

    Bake at 375 degrees for 10 minutes. Cool on cookie sheet for 2 minutes, then remove to a wire rack until they’re completely cool. (The rack is important – it makes them crisp.)
