A Cookbook Giveaway!

Welcome to Brown Eyed Baker’s very first giveaway!


field-guide-to-cookies

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!

    My favorite cookie is a snickerdoodle, specifically the Mrs. Fields cinnamon-sugar cookie knockoff recipe.

  2. Kate on June 3, 2009 at 10:43 am

    Oatmeal chocolate chip

  3. maeghan on June 3, 2009 at 10:45 am

    The classic chocolate chip cookie, although I haven’t met a cookie I didn’t like :)

  4. Jami on June 3, 2009 at 10:48 am

    chocolate chip and toffee, warm from the oven of course!

  5. Jessica on June 3, 2009 at 10:51 am

    Plain old chocolate chip cookies will always be my favorite. Fresh from the oven.

  6. Nicole B. on June 3, 2009 at 10:57 am

    Im a big fan of the traditional Chocolate chip cookies but I won’t turn away other kinds. I love all cookies!

  7. Erica on June 3, 2009 at 10:57 am

    My favorite cookies are the No Bake Cookies. I learned them from a babysitter and we don’t use peanut butter; just cocoa, oats, butter, sugar, and vanilla. My daughter would make these everyday if I let her!

  8. Mari on June 3, 2009 at 11:00 am

    A favorite cookie? That’s impossible for me!

  9. Lauren on June 3, 2009 at 11:04 am

    My favorite cookie is a classic butter cookie cutout with frosting… mmm

  10. Michele on June 3, 2009 at 11:16 am

    Chocolate Chip Cookies are always my favorite but recently I’ve been liking them with some mint! YUM!

  11. Bridget on June 3, 2009 at 11:19 am

    Chocolate chip, for sure. Preferably before the dough is baked…

  12. Courtney on June 3, 2009 at 11:19 am

    Chocolate chip macadamia nut. They’re not as common as white chocolate macadamia nut, but are still my favorite!

  13. christin on June 3, 2009 at 11:21 am

    Peanut butter cookies are my favorite:)
    This sounds great! Thanks for the chance:)

    It is hard to pick just one….but….probably….chocolate chip cookies!!!

  15. tina on June 3, 2009 at 11:23 am

    My home made sugar cookie recipe with lots of nutmeg!

  16. Katie on June 3, 2009 at 11:23 am

    My favorite cookies are my mother-in-law’s peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. No matter how many times I’ve tried to duplicate, they never come out as good as hers.

  17. Cathy on June 3, 2009 at 11:26 am

    nothing beats a classic chocolate chip cookie!

  18. Katie on June 3, 2009 at 11:27 am
  19. Heather on June 3, 2009 at 11:31 am

    I made these brown butter, brown sugar cookies once from Cooks Illustrated that were truly amazing. But the didn’t have chocolate, so eh?!?

  20. anna on June 3, 2009 at 11:37 am

    chocolate, chocolate chip! yum!

  21. Kallie on June 3, 2009 at 11:39 am

    Snickerdoodles, by far!

  22. Jingle on June 3, 2009 at 11:44 am

    I really love a great oatmeal cookie! No raisins, no nuts, just plain oatmeal goodness with yummy spices!

  23. Melissa S on June 3, 2009 at 11:48 am

    I have an awesome spice cookie dough from my Grandmother that I use at Christmas. From that one dough I make 4-5 different cookie…some with dried fruit, rum frosting & pecans, lemon frosting, etc. It’s not really sweet – more spicy.

  24. Amanda on June 3, 2009 at 11:58 am

    I adore white chocolate macadamia nut cookies!!

  25. Jaime on June 3, 2009 at 12:07 pm

  32. Erin on June 3, 2009 at 12:48 pm

    I don’t have a favorite! I love too many cookies!

    PS. I am going to Twitter this!

  33. Cherie' Crow on June 3, 2009 at 12:51 pm

    I’d love to win this! I love all kinds of cookies, but if I had to pick, I’d probably have to stick with a classic chocolate chip cookie!

  34. Erin on June 3, 2009 at 12:52 pm

    My favorite cookie is a chocolate chip cookie with semi sweet and white chips!

  35. Cherie' Crow on June 3, 2009 at 12:52 pm

  37. Colleen on June 3, 2009 at 1:01 pm

    I love red velvet cake cookies and warm peanut butter cookies :D

  38. elly on June 3, 2009 at 1:03 pm

    My all time favorite cookies are definitely melomakarona – greek spice/honey/walnut cookies. Mmmm.

  39. Amy on June 3, 2009 at 1:16 pm

    I’m probably in the minority but I LOVE oatmeal raisin cookies! :)

  40. Molly Jean on June 3, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    Mmm, I love warm chocolate chip cookies and a big glass of milk. But occasionally a loaded monster cookie hits the spot too!

  41. michelle on June 3, 2009 at 1:30 pm

    My favorite cookie would have to be oatmeal with chocolate chips, yum!

  42. Jessica on June 3, 2009 at 1:33 pm

    Pumpkin whoopie pies…hand down the best cookie ever!!!!

  43. Sarah on June 3, 2009 at 1:46 pm

    Tough choice! I think I’d have to go with a good ol’ chocolate chip cookie!

  44. Janet on June 3, 2009 at 1:55 pm

    Ummmmm….has to be the classic black-and-white cookie.

  45. emily e. on June 3, 2009 at 2:07 pm

    Don’t know that there is a cookie out there that I don’t like, but chocolate chip is definitely my favorite!

  46. Heather G on June 3, 2009 at 2:19 pm

    My recent fav is this chocolate chip cookie recipe from Annie’s Eats (http://annies-eats.com/2008/09/08/thick-and-chewy-chocolate-chip-cookies/) w/ butterscotch chips added. Our family loves them and consumes WAY too many of them!! :)

  47. Kelly S on June 3, 2009 at 2:38 pm

    I love oatmeal raisin cookies…specifically the ones at Paradise Bakery, I would love to find a copycat recipe for those!

  48. Laura on June 3, 2009 at 3:05 pm
