Mid-Winter WINNER!!

ClosedWhen the Mid-Winter's Eve Giveaway started way back on Dec. 21st, I was deep into BAKING. There was flour all over the kitchen and the smell of melting chocolate permeating... everything. We whipped up Gingerbread houses and fudge, bars, crinkles, krispies... until I felt quite ill well before the 27th.

In fact, I don't think I want to see another cookie 'til next year. That might be too early!!  Lol.

Krysykat - you chose cookies of forgiveness and that sounds perfect!

If there had been a Cookie Winner - Chocolate Chip would have won, no contest. I never think of chocolate chip cookies around Christmas. And even though I'm chocolate's BFF, I like to be creative.

You know what would have been totally awesome? If we had to share recipe's to enter a giveaway and then got a book of everyone's Cool Cookie. Too much?

Like miki said her fav is buche de noel made in ice cream. I need to try that!! (Only, what is it?)

Or... mommy0306 tempted me with a favorite peanutbutter cookies that is so yummy she could eat a whole batch by herself. But no recipe sharing!!

A couple of you shared more details (which I imagine would feel weird on Rafflecopter)

Lolawid said... homemade pecan turtles. Pretzels, w/ rollo or caramell kiss in 250 oven for 8 minutes, take them out and push a pecan half down onto each one.  YUM!!

Michelle Bledsoe brought up white fudge covered oreo cookies, which are amazing, I agree.

Ricki turned her snowballs into lemon balls.  :-) Fun idea!

Pinchbuggies, how did your Rocky Road Fudge turn out? That's my favorite, I think... besides whatever else I already claimed. My grandparents lived on "Rocky Road" when I was a kid (some indeterminate time ago) and I thought those cookies were named after my grandma's version. Doesn't everyone know my grandma?!  :-)

Thx to Jennifer Messerchmidt who described a delicious peanut butter cookie w/ a reese cup in a mini muffin pan. Oh, and for being one of the few to suggest Rafflecopter.  In my defense, I had googled it before & they'd sent me an email that they'd "invite me" to use their form in the future.

I think my favorite answer was from mochagirlsread... Anything with chocolate is my favorite. Chocolate with chocolate is the best.

Yes. Or, No, rather... no more cookies for me!!  

In fact, my Honey & I are diving into one of those radical diets to see if we can't change something dramatic in 2012. I'm eager to begin.  Lol. It's easy to say that NOW... we'll see how I feel in a couple weeks!!

But I'm announcing a WINNER... yes. Thanks to all for entering & even more for Following!!

And the WINNER of the Mid-Winter Giveaway Hop is.....
