Giveaway Day

It's Giveaway Day again over at Sew Mama Sew http://sewmamasew.com/blog and just like in times past I'm one of those bloggers participating so without further ado lets get to the nitty gritty.
You have until 5pm on December 16th to enter, that's this coming Friday, so you have plenty of time to not only enter here but the hundreds of other blogs that are participating too :).
I will choose a winner by random generator and notify the winner via email by Sunday and your goodies will be in the mail to you before Christmas day.
I'm opening this Giveaway up to everyone who has a mailing address, so if you live on the other side of the world that's A'OK you can still enter.Please only one entry per person, if you enter more than once you go on Santa's naughty list and will end up with a lump of coal instead of the awesomeness you could win here.
Talking of awesomeness want to see what I'm giving away ? A fabulous make-up brush clutch. Actually these clutches can be used for anything from make-up brushes, to crochet hooks and markers as long as they're 8 inches or shorter. Pretty sweet huh ? You get to choose which design you'd like from the ones pictured below.
 All you need to do to enter is leave me a comment and tell me what your favorite Christmas cookie is, if you have extra time on your hands (HAH) you could even leave the recipe or maybe you've blogged about it, if so link it up, I'm sure many of us are in need of new recipes, I know I am and be sure to state which clutch you'd like.
If you're also hosting a Giveaway and would like to link to it please feel free to link up in your comment.
                                                                      Good luck !!!

I'm a sucker for anything chocolate! I'm especially fond of the green and black(?) clutch shown on the right side.

Tina said...

I absolutely love the simple sugar cookies with homemade frosting. Of course, in Christmas shapes!

Vanessa be good said...

I love powdered sugar cookies at Christmas. A great recipe for Polvarones can be found at Patis Mexican Table
http://patismexicantable.com/2011/06/piggy-cinnamon-and-piloncillo-cookies.html

Your owls clutch is really adorable!

Vanessa be good said...

oops.. for the recipe I meant Polvorones at this link
http://patismexicantable.com/2010/12/mexican-wedding-cookies.html

Although the piggies are a great one too!!!

Arlyne said...

I love both the clutches on the top left, and can't pick which one I think looks better. Horrible, I know. If I do happen to get picked, just surprise me, I guess?

As for favorite cookie recipe, peanut butter chocolate chunk. Easy enough, you preferred PB cookie recipe, toss in chocolate chunks (or chips, doesn't matter), bake as normal (well, you have to squish with hands instead of a fork if you want them to flatten right, but still)

Robynsky said...

These sound weird, but they're amazing: saltine toffee. You have to try it - http://www.cdkitchen.com/recipes/recs/30/Chocolate_Saltine_Toffee59994.shtml

Nancy D. said...

My favorite cookie is what we call nut balls. They're sort of like "wedding cookies", except in the shape of a ball. I need to make some of them!

Catherine said...

I like anything with caramel - - mmm!

My favorite clutch is on the top right.

Thanks for the chance!

kbzelazny said...

I love cut out sugar cookies! Thanks~

Melanie said...

My Grandma's cut outs. Thanks for the chance!

deede said...

My favorite is old-fashioned oatmeal cookies with pecans and golden raisins. The key to a great cookie is grinding the spices right before adding them to the cookie batter!

I love the upper left hand one that's b&W, green and pink.

Thanks!

Amy said...

Peppermint Fudge! Yum!

Lynne said...

I LOVE the grey and aqua clutch. So chic.

My favorite Christmas cookie is plain old chocolate chip, made with semi-sweet chips, and no nuts. :)

Thanks for the chance to enter!

Esther said...

My favorite Christmas cookies are Peppermint Sandwich Cremes (I blogged about them at http://esther.pawliw.com/2010/11/bake-thon.html) They're basically peppermint shortbread cookies with a peppermint cream cheese filling rolled in crushed candy canes. Soooo yummy!!

Emelote of Calais (Erin Thornton) said...

I love doing Holiday baking...I used to do Erin's 12 days of Holiday baking as a fundraiser for holiday hampers at work. But I digress. My favorite shortbread recipe comes from Martha Stewart and the chocolate on it is nice too!

http://www.marthastewart.com/342398/basic-shortbread

It is my favourite and I make it every year!

Carole said...

Milo biscuits are the bomb!

Ebeth said...

I gave up eating flour and sugar earlier this year.So the cookies that USED to be my favorite were peanut butter blossoms (with the Hershey's kiss in the middle).

stephrenee said...

Old fashioned cut out sugar cookies with buttercream frosting. We use an old recipe that calls for powdered sugar instead of granulated sugar and almond flavoring-it gives the cookies this little bite that is so yummy! I think my favorite clutch is the bright pink and green on the bottom. Thank you:)!!

Ned's Place said...

Lemon shortbread is my favorite cookie.

Judy said...

Love your functional clutches, especially the polka-dot one you featured in the large photo.
Thank you for participating & giving this nice gift.
Favorite cookie would be a buttery Meltaway...so yummy.
Mix tog. 3/4 C butter, 1/2 C powder sug, 1/2 C cornstarch, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 C. flour. Roll into small balls & place on a greased cookie sheet & flatten with finger. Bake @ 350 for 20 minutes or less according to oven. Hope you enjoy as much as we do.

Here's my favorite, almost cookie, recipe for Christmas:

Toffee (Christmas Crunch)

1 ¾ cups sugar
½ cup light corn syrup
¼ cup water
1 cup margarine or butter (2 sticks)
8 ounces slivered blanched almonds, lightly toasted and finely chopped
2 1-ounce squares unsweetened chocolate, coarsely chopped
2 1-ounce squares semisweet chocolate, coarsely chopped
1 teaspoon shortening

In heavy 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, heat sugar, corn syrup, and ¼ cup water to boiling, stirring occasionally. Stir in margarine or butter. Set candy thermometer in place and continue cooking, stirring frequently, until temperature reaches 300 degrees F or hard-crack stage (when small amount of mixture dropped into very cold water separates into hard and brittle threads), about 20 minutes.

Remove saucepan from heat. Reserve ½ cup chopped almonds. Stir remaining almonds into hot syrup. Immediately pour mixture into lightly greased 15 ½” by 10 ½” jelly-roll pan; spread evenly. Cool in pan on rack.

Prepare chocolate glaze: In heavy, small saucepan over low heart, heat chocolate and shortening until melted, stirring occasionally. Remove saucepan from heat; cool slightly.

Remove candy in one piece from pan to cutting board. Spread chocolate over candy; sprinkle with reserved almonds, pressing them gently into chocolate. Set candy aside to allow glaze to set, about 1 hour. Break candy into pieces. Store in layers, separated by waxed paper, in tightly covered container to use up within 2 weeks. Makes about 1 ¼ pounds candy.

Can you say YUMMY!!

Thanks for the great giveaway!

Lil Bean said...

My favourite Christmas baking is my mom's fruitcake cookies. Unfortunately I don't have the recipe anymore.

Lissame said...

well I would have to say that I am trying to make a new cookie this year, and it is a welsh biscuit. so I am hoping that they will turn out okay as they are not backed but fried. As for the print I love the one with blue...you do great work.

Oooh, well I don't think I have a fav. I do love making the classic sugar cookies and decorating them for nostalgic reasons. But I love to bake so every year I bake about 5+ different types of cookies for xmas. This year I'm favoring a chocolate shortbread sandwich with a mint chocolate ganache filling. :) A recipe I found on an awesome site call www.joyofbaking.com I've gotten lots of great cookie recipes off of it. ^_^

Love this,perfect for my hooks,and we can choose color,so lovely of you.My favorites are chocolate and ginger brad cookies.

Happy holidays!!

Judi said...

My favorite treat is not really a cookie, but I always make them to add to my cookie give away trays because they are bulky and fill a lot of space for a limited amount of money and time. Besides that, they're great. They're called Haystacks and they are simple to make – large marshmallows, dipped in melted caramel, then rolled in Rice Krispies.

Megan S said...

Spritz cookies! With sugar, not sprinkles.

Nell said...

One super successful cookie I did was a minty surprise cookie - so easy too! Take premade sugar cookie dough and slice it thinly, then sandwich a thin mint/grasshopper cookie between two dough rounds and bake. Simple, and they come together so quickly...and they're delicious! Great clutches!

I eat all cookies all the time, so I don't have a specific "Christmas cookie" per se. My in-laws always request French macarons whenever I visit for Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings, so I suppose that's fairly close to a holiday tradition. And, hey, I did indeed write a post about making:

This is a great cookie recipe (not necessarily Christmas, but all cookies are good at Christmastime, right?): http://www.marthastewart.com/281209/chocolate-crackle-cookies

My favorite pouch is the green in the top right!

Beautiful bags.

My favorite cookie at Christmas time is thumbprint cookies. Rather than jelly in the thumbprint, I often fill them with buttercream icing.

My fav cookie is a spice cookie made by grandma!

My fav clutch is the second one on the top row.

Thanks for the chance!

I love russian tea cakes!
I love the bags, especially the first one on the bottom. Pink and green are my favorite. Thanks for the giveaway

My favourite has to be Shortbread, and Lucy makes a lovely one.

My fave isn't really a cookie. I like English mince pies, plain pastry with vegan apricot and ginger mincemeat. Hot. That owl fabric is great.

Very stylish!

My favourite christmas treat is pink snow squares, but I have been too lazy to copy the recipe out of the book. instead, my next best thing - the ginger cookie mix from President's choice - it has tasty bits of candied ginger for lots of heat!

Thanks,
Sarah
