A Cookbook Giveaway!

Welcome to Brown Eyed Baker’s very first giveaway!


A few weeks ago I was the lucky winner in Liliana’s giveaway of Field Guide to Cookies by Anita Chu of Dessert First, which was held over at My Cookbook Addiction.

How lucky was I! This is such a fantastic little book packed full of wonderful recipes. Pretty much any cookie you can think of is in there – everything from Amaretti, Black and White Cookies, and Macaroons to Baklava, Granola Bars, Gingersnaps, Rugelach, and much more for a total of 100 cookie recipes. I was most impressed by how many ethnic-inspired cookie recipes are included and can’t wait to give it a big workout come the holidays.

Due to some shipping issues that Liliana ran into, she ended up sending me two copies of the book and although both of them arrived to me safely she insisted that I keep both (what a sweet person!). Now I don’t want to be greedy and since it is such an amazing book, I want to share a copy with one of my lucky readers!

How To Enter: It’s easy! Just leave a comment telling me what your all-time favorite cookie is.

Bonus: If you share a link to this giveaway on your blog, through Facebook or Twitter, post another comment with a link to your shout out for a total of two possible chances to win.

Deadline to Enter: 11pm EST Saturday, June 6th

A winner will be selected by the random number generator on Sunday, June 7th and the book will be shipped to the winner on Monday.

**Please be sure to leave a valid email address when leaving a comment (no one will see it but me) so that I am able to notify you if you win!

    I love chewy chocolate chip cookies right out of the oven!

  2. Amy I. on June 3, 2009 at 2:05 am

    Ooh I’ve been coveting this book since it came out! My favorite cookie recipe is my monster cookies: oatmeal chocolate chip m&m peanut butter. Sounds like flavor overload, but it’s perfect! Thanks for the giveaway :)

  3. Susie on June 3, 2009 at 5:31 am

    How neat that you are giving away the extra book.
    My favorite cookie is No Bake Cookies. Yes, the very simple No Bake Cookies. Who doesn’t love the chocolate and peanut butter with oatmeal when warm. Oh good cold too. :)

  4. Ginny on June 3, 2009 at 5:36 am

    Russian tea cookies. Hands down.

  5. Ashlie on June 3, 2009 at 7:10 am

    I love a good ol’ classic chocolate chip cookie!

  6. Alison on June 3, 2009 at 7:20 am

    My favorite cookie of all time is a chocolate chip-peanut butter cookie!

  7. Carrie on June 3, 2009 at 7:53 am

    What a great idea for the extra book!
    My favorite cookie is the World Peace Cookie. Yum!

  8. Meghan on June 3, 2009 at 7:57 am

    This looks like a really neat cookbook. My all-time favorite cookie has to be chocolate chocolate chip!

  9. Jennifer on June 3, 2009 at 7:58 am

    I think that good ol’ peanut butter cookies are my all time favorite…until Christmas time comes along, then I like to get my fill of the iced sugar cookies too. :-)

  10. Erika on June 3, 2009 at 8:13 am

    I love your blog! I think my favorite cookies are pizelles. They are not my favorite in terms of taste, but for the memories of making them every Christmas with my mom. Now I get to do it with my kids!

  11. Meghan on June 3, 2009 at 8:27 am

    I have so many favorites but I think if I had to pick any cookie to eat today it would be a No Bake cookie. My Grandma (who was very much not the baker) used to make them for me all the time! Think I might have to whip up a batch tonight!

  12. Jenny on June 3, 2009 at 8:29 am

    What a great giveaway!

    I’d say my favorite cookie is plain old chocolate chip.

    But I also heart black and white cookies, peanut butter cookies, and anything with icing.

    Hm. I love cookies!

  13. Nicole on June 3, 2009 at 8:32 am

    Peanut Butter Cookies…YUM!

  14. Margaret on June 3, 2009 at 8:33 am

    I love anything with double the chocolate chips–especially oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, which I just made last night!

  15. Geriann on June 3, 2009 at 8:33 am

    I just love fresh from the oven chocolate chip– or ricotta cookies… can’t chose which is my fav

  16. Meghan on June 3, 2009 at 8:34 am

    I also left comment on blog! Here is the link http://pfeifferskitchen.blogspot.com/2009/06/pssssssti-know-secret.html


  17. Jess on June 3, 2009 at 8:40 am

    Oooh, this sounds like a great book! My most favorite cookies in the world are the Butter Balls that my mom makes every Christmas. I only let myself have them around the holidays because otherwise I would happily chow down a dozen a day!

  18. MJ on June 3, 2009 at 8:40 am

    This is so hard…I think I have to go with chocolate chip, but I’m pretty much an equal opportunity cookie eater!

  19. Erin on June 3, 2009 at 8:41 am

    This looks like such a fun book! I like double chocolate chunk cookies- the more chocolate, the better!

  20. Tiffany on June 3, 2009 at 8:45 am

    My favorite cookies are Berger cookies. You can find them in Baltimore since they’re a local favorite.

  21. Regina on June 3, 2009 at 8:55 am

    Peanut Butter Cookies all the way.

  22. sarah on June 3, 2009 at 8:59 am

    my mom makes these cookies called “mud dobbers”. they’re the epitome of a chocolate rush!

  23. Carrie on June 3, 2009 at 9:01 am

    My favorite is old fashion chewy chocolate chip cookies.

  24. Carole Jones on June 3, 2009 at 9:03 am

    Any cookie that is packed with chocolate is a winner in my book!

  25. jenn on June 3, 2009 at 9:03 am

    These thin ginger cookies that my grandmother used to make, squished with a sugar coated glass. She would feed them to us when we arrived at her house late at night after driving all day.

  26. Liz Brooks on June 3, 2009 at 9:04 am

    Oh please enter me! My favorite cookie is a recipe I got when I first got married—it is a chocolate cookie with Andes mints melted on top-so chewy and delish. Yum now I want to bake some:)

  27. Avanika(YumsiliciousBakes) on June 3, 2009 at 9:09 am

    Oooh I’ve always wanted this book. My favorite cookie is the ol’ classic – chocolate chip 😀

  28. Lori on June 3, 2009 at 9:19 am

    I LOVE my mom’s shortbread cookies!

  29. Christine on June 3, 2009 at 9:25 am

    Man, that’s a tough question. I think my favourite are cherry almond crisps – a staple for my family at Christmas time.

  30. Jennifer on June 3, 2009 at 9:29 am

    The chocolate chip cookie is my favorite. This book looks fabulous.

  31. Melanie on June 3, 2009 at 9:32 am

    I love a classic chocolate chip but it’s also impossible for me to pass up one of those peanut butter cookies with the hershey kiss on top! 😀

  32. Beth on June 3, 2009 at 9:32 am

    I love crispy chocolate chip cookies. Chewy ones are ok, but thin, crispy, homemade chocolate chips rock my world :o)

  33. Allie on June 3, 2009 at 9:33 am

    my all time favorite cookie is my mom’s pumpkin iced cookies. mmmm!

  34. Katy on June 3, 2009 at 9:38 am

    I am a classic cookie lover… chocolate chip, no nuts. Love it!

  35. Krizia on June 3, 2009 at 9:39 am

    Those white chocolate coconut lemon cookies from Whole Foods :-)

  36. Susan on June 3, 2009 at 9:42 am

    My all time favorite is right on the cover…the peanut butter kiss ones! For some reason, I only think about making them at the holidays…probably better for my waistline!

  37. Stephanie on June 3, 2009 at 9:50 am

    I really love pink grapefruit sandwich cookies. They are my new favorite!

  38. Kelly on June 3, 2009 at 9:54 am

    Hmm….I can only pick one?! Just kidding :) My favorite is probably cut-out, royal-iced sugar cookies. I don’t know why — I love those things!

  39. Ellen on June 3, 2009 at 9:55 am

    My all time favorite cookie would definitely be oatmeal chocolate chip. A little bit different than what I grew up on, but just as tasty!

  40. Lisa on June 3, 2009 at 10:06 am

    I found a fabulous carrot cake sandwich cookie (cream cheese frosting) online. I believe its a Martha recipe.

  41. Nina H. on June 3, 2009 at 10:08 am

    I would have to say my favorite cookie is a rasin oatmeal cookie. Yummy!

  42. Anna on June 3, 2009 at 10:13 am

    I hate to repeat, but Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies are amazing!

  43. Kristi on June 3, 2009 at 10:14 am

    I am a lover of the traditional chocolate chip cookie, but I love to explore a new cookie in between batches. This book looks really good!

  44. Heather on June 3, 2009 at 10:17 am

    My mother in law’s almond cookies rock my world. Though, I would never tell my mother this – to her it’s her pb cookies with the hershey kiss on top! :) Thanks for the giveaway!

  45. Megan on June 3, 2009 at 10:23 am

    I love cookies! I can’t pick a favorite.

  46. Eileen S. on June 3, 2009 at 10:24 am

    My favorite is White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cranberry Cookies! My second favorite is Iced Sugar Cookies (I can’t wait to try your recipe from the weekend!). Would love a copy of that cookbook, my sisters and mother bake together at Christmas & are always looking for new ideas!

  47. Jill on June 3, 2009 at 10:24 am

    I love a good old fashioned chocolate chip cookie…just after they come out of the oven…accompanied by a big glass of cold milk. Yum!

  48. Eileen S. on June 3, 2009 at 10:27 am
  49. Alycia Irish on June 3, 2009 at 10:27 am

    Chocolate chip cookies and any kind of variation of that delicious cookie! I like to put toffee chips and coconut in mine. =)

  50. Michel-lee R on June 3, 2009 at 10:34 am

    My fav is peanut butter cookies. I use the recipe from Jif because it’s our favorite peanut butter.
