Three Days to Go - Please Enter our Cookie Recipe Contest!

Yes, there are still three days for you to enter your favorite cookie recipe in our Cookie Recipe Contest! What would a contest be without prizes and so far the prize package includes 25 extra entries in the give-away for the 2015 American Girl Doll Girl of the Year and one Berenstain Bears' Country Cookbook (you'll find the review for the cookbook at this link)! 

Zonderkidz sent me one copy for free to review and they are making another available for me to give away; which I will as part of the prize package for the Cookie Recipe Contest! If you are over the age of 18 and live in the USA you may enter this contest and potentially win this cookbook by sharing your favorite cookie recipe! As I arrange for additional prizes, I'll announce them!

Now I have mentioned prizes, let's look at the "rules" for the contest! 
  • You may share your favorite cookie recipe - or one of your favorites - by posting the recipe on this post. (One recipe per person)
  • In three days (March 9, 2015), I'll list the cookie recipes which have been contributed and you all may vote on the recipes you like the best (each person may vote for two).
  • Please look at the recipes already submitted (you'll find them at this link and this link) as I'll only include one chocolate chip cookie recipe, one peanut butter cookie recipe, etc . . . so if someone has already submitted the recipe you plan to submit, check and submit something else, unless you recipe is significantly different.
  • You will have two weeks to vote for your two favorite cookie recipes then I will count the votes and the top three vote getters will be entered in another voting round where you will be able to vote for your one favorite!
  • You will have one week to vote for your favorite and the recipe which receives the most votes is the winner!
I hope this does not sound complicated!

You still have time to enter this fun contest by sharing your cookie recipe! I'm looking forward to seeing - and even trying - some really tasty cookie recipes, so, let the recipe sharing continue!


  1. This is such a fun contest! Thanks for hosting it. I am looking forward to see the recipes.
    I would like to enter my Brownie Cookies.
    2oz semi-sweet chocolate, coarsely chopped 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    8 TBS (1 stick) unsalted butter at room temp. 1/2 tsp baking powder
    1 cup granulated sugar 1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 large egg at room temp. 1/2 cup mini semi-sweet choc chips
    1 tsp vanilla extract about 60 walnut halves for garnish

    1. Position a rack in the center of the oven and preheat to 350 F. (It is best to bake these 1 sheet at a time.
    2. Melt 2 oz of chocolate either in a double boiler, or in the microwave. Go slow so you do not seize the chocolate if you choose to use the microwave.
    3. Beat butter and sugar until light in color. Beat in egg and vanilla. Beat in melted chocolate. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt. Stir in miniature chocolate chips.
    4. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Press in a walnut half into the top of each cookie, pressing down slightly to adhere. (The walnuts are optional. I have used pecans as an alternative and they worked well, too.)
    5. Bake 10 to 12 minutes, until cookies are set and beginning to brown around the edges. Let cool for 2 minutes and then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely. Makes about 60 cookies.
    6. Enjoy!
