A Giveaway!


I am very excited to be giving away a copy of Bakerella's book Cake Pops! Not only can you win your very own copy of this awesome book, but I am going to have it signed by Bakerella specifically for you! A week from today I am going to one of her book signings and I'm so excited! Maybe I need a few more exclamation points!!!!!!!! I am sure many, if not all of you know who I am talking about, but if not, please go check out her awesome blog!

Here is the disclaimer: I am not receiving anything to do this and am purchasing the book myself. I just happen to love her blog and want to share her book with one of you! I actually saw her recommendation of the book Cookie Craft on her blog which is what started my cookie making obsession. My husband might not be too anxious to thank her, though he does love to eat the cookies! :-) I also almost exclusively use her buttercream recipe for my cakes! It's SO delicious and simple!

The contest will end Wednesday, November 10th, 2010, at 10pm EST. The winner will be chosen using random.org. I will announce the winner by Wednesday at midnight, and if you win, I need you to let me know what I should have her write (by midnight on Thursday, 11/11) - so make sure I can contact you in time!

You can enter by posting a comment here. Please leave your blog or email so that I can contact you!!

You can get an entry by . . .
1) leaving a comment here telling me your favorite Christmas cookie (one entry per person please)
2) like my Facebook page (leave an additional comment here telling me you did that)
3) tweet or post on Facebook about this giveaway (leave an additional comment here telling me you did that)

UPDATE: Please make sure to post your email or some other way for me to contact you (like your blog). You also need to post a comment for each additional entry! Thank you!!

Thanks so much and good luck!!!

  4. WOWOW!! What an awesome giveaway! My favorite Christmas cookie to make is my dad's aunt's ranger cookies. It requires two or three people to stir, be/c the batter is so thick, so it is the best cookie to make Christmas eve, surrounded by family. My favorite cookie to eat is my grams melt-aways. mmmmmmm.

  7. Wow! :)) This got me really excited!
    I wish I win this book. I want this one for Christmas.

    My favorite Christmas cookie, I must say, is the decorated sugar cookie. It's because it's sooo yummy, festive and it makes a good present too.

  9. This is my first time on your site and a must say your cookies are adorable! Thanks so much for the chance to win this book.
    My favorite Christmas cookie would be the green Christmas tree cookies with red hots on them that my Granny used to make. She used the old cream cheese spritz recipe and tinted them green, then ran them through the old cookie dough press. The cookies were good, but the memories of them are even better.

  13. Fun Giveaway Amy!

    My favorite Christmas cookie are my mom's cut-outs. I'm not sure if they are "sugar" cookies - they're soft and are made with sour cream. Love them and I am really wanting to try royal icing on them, since I normally use buttercream.

    I love this time of year because it is Christmas Cookie season. My mom, sister and I spend an entire day listening to Christmas carols (old school style) and making dozens of types of cookies. My favories are the chocolate shots and ice box cookies oh and snowballs too!

  19. Of course I am already a Facebook fan!!

    My favorite Christmas cookie is one that I got from a friend of the family. They are called "The World's Best Cookie" and we only make them at Christmas time. They have oatmeal, nuts, crushed cornflakes, and lots of butter. But the best part is that they're covered in powdered sugar. Sooo yummy and crunchy!!

    Have fun meeting Bakerella!!!

  28. My favorite Christmas Cookie is definitely my great-grandmother's butter cookies. They are so simple, yet so tasty! There is a revolt in my family if I ever try to get through a holiday season without making them. Dad loves the long ripple ones (via the cookie press) sprinkled with red or green sugar.
