Giveaway Day

Over the years that I've been entering contests via this lovely internet community, I've been lucky enough to win a few great prizes. . fabric, a calendar, cute clothes for my girls, a beautiful quilted journal cover, handmade cards, a fabric storage box, and of course, an autographed copy of Alicia Paulson's Stitched in Time - the list goes on . . .

I enter a giveaway almost every day . . I think they're such a great way to give back to the blogging community that gives so much in terms of inspiration.

Which is why I'm taking part in Sew Mama Sew's Giveaway Day on December 2.

I have this book on my wish list this year . . I borrowed it from the library a few weeks ago and fell in love! I didn't have a chance to try out any of the projects but I think it belongs on every quilter's bookshelf.


If you win this giveaway, I will order it directly from a bookstore and have it delivered to you. I will also mail a little package of handmade fun. This will include an ornament for sure, but the rest depends on where the winner is from since postage rates can vary and it would be nice if the package could arrive before Christmas.

All you have to do to enter is leave a comment on this post telling me what your favourite Christmas cookie is . . and a link to a recipe gives you two entries. I need to get started on holiday baking!

Want a third entry? Become a follower of our blog and leave a comment telling me you've done so. (If you're already a follower you get a bonus entry but be sure and let me know.)

The deadline to enter is December 6th. Please include your email with your entry so I can contact you if you win!

Good luck!

- Donna

I LOVE that book! I've taken it out of the library a few times too - which is difficult because my library system doesn't have it and I have to inter-library loan, so I'd love to win! Anyway, I love shortbread cookies too - I'm a traditionalist when it comes to cookies but I love modern quilts!

What a great giveaway! I usually go Cookie-palooza for the holidays but my favourite gingerbread recipe is this one....

http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/gingerbread-snowflakes?backto=true

It's taken me a few tries to master it but it's very spicy. I've always used it as a name tag for cookie gift packs. I made them for my staff one year and customers tried to buy them!

anne said...

oooooooh I sure would love to have that book, unfortunately the library I use does not have a copy, sob sob.

I love to make a rum ball, not a cookie I know but soooooooo tasty.

Happy Stitching

Generous giveaway, Donna. I have had my eye on this book for a while!

My fav cookie is a Neopolitan cookie like the one found about halfway down on this page (http://www.taubenfeld.bravepages.com/Christmas2001.htm). Only, I dip mine halfway in melted chocolate. YUM

Melanie said...

That book has been in my Amazon Wish List for so long! What a fantastic giveaway!

My favorite cookie for the Holidays has to be a classic sugar cookie. Here's Betty Crocker's recipe.

The rest of the year, my favorite cookies are the Ghirardelli chocolate chip cookies listed on their baking chips bag. This recipe has never failed me; the best chocolate chip cookies ever! I'm sure the fact that the recipe uses TWO sticks of butter has something to do with making them so tasty!

Victoria van der Laan said...

Fantastic book, and such a nice idea for a giveaway!

As for cookies, my favorite isn't especially holiday-like but my mom would only make them at Christmas and my brothers and I would DEVOUR them. We call them forgotten cookies but they're basically just meringue cookie with chocolate chips in them baked at a very low temperature and left in the oven overnight (thus "forgotten"). So, so good.

Rebecca said...

Well - favorite cookie - that is a tough one - but I think it must be the sugar cookie recipe from my mom's ANCIENT betty crocker cookbook (seriously, that thing can hardly be called a "book" anymore, it is falling apart!)Mostly from age and a whole lot of use. But, I am VERY excited to make these this year: http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/lemon-crepes-living

Its not a cookie, but I think it will make a great Christmas morning breakfast!

Jenny said...

I love this book too, and I requested our library to buy it and they did! yipee! but i would love even more to not have to return it! Thanks for a chance.
I love the candycane cookies made from my moms betty crocker cookbook, but they are so fragile we hardly make them!

Hell yeah!

Kat said...

My favorite recipe isn't exactly a cookie, it's fudge. It's Velveeta Cheese Fudge. Everyone thinks it sounds gross, but it's delicious. The cheese gives it a good texture. And when the recipe measures in pounds of cheese, butter, and sugar you really can't go wrong.

I love peanut butter balls(not a cookie) most, but as far as cookies go I really like the peanut butter cookies with a Hershey kiss in the middle...notice a theme with peanut butter... the craving was inherited from my dad.

My favorite cookies are these chocolate candy cane cookies. I usually drop the dough by spoonfuls on the pan instead of shaping them like candycanes. Here is the link: http://www.kraftfoods.com/kf/recipes/chocolate-candy-cane-cookies-107531.aspx

Great giveaway!

But maybe that's just because I love peppermint bark so much.

cookies... simple sugar cookies, but not flat and hard, fluffy and soft. And with a touch of almond flavoring.

Jaime said...

I've been wanting that book for ages!

My favorite *anytime* cookie is a just a great chocolate chip. This one is a variation on the classic Toll House recipe that makes it chewy without underbaking - perfect!

Our favorite Christmas cookie is German Crisps. ?A recipe that we've been using for over 40 years! Don't know if it is online anywhere...I'll google it and come back with a link if I find one. They are not a crisp cookie like the name implies, but a flat light lemon wafer cutout cookie that we glaze and decorate with kids/friends/family every year.

Katie said...

My favorite cookies are my grandma's tollhouse cookies, which she makes from the recipe on tollhouse chocolate chips.

But recently I found these cookies: http://allrecipes.com/Recipe/Chocolate-Chip-Pumpkin-Cookies-2/Detail.aspx
they are so addictingly yummy! When I made them I substituted the vegetable oil for applesauce, which gave the cookies a muffin like consistency. Something to think about if you want to make it healthier.
