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!

    My favorite cookies are double chocolate oatmeal, rolled in powdered sugar before baking. They’re amazing.

  2. Maureen on June 3, 2009 at 3:43 pm

    My favorite cookie is chocolate covered coconut macaroons.

  3. Michelle Mather on June 3, 2009 at 3:44 pm

    Ooooo…. I WAS going to say chocolate chip… I figured it was a no-brainer… but then I read everyone else’s comments and now I don’t know!!!! They ALL sound so good!

  4. Coleen on June 3, 2009 at 4:07 pm

    I love a sugar cookie with frosting. My sister has been baking these for years at Christmas and I finally made them myself years ago. I now make them every Christmas.

  5. Kerstin on June 3, 2009 at 4:40 pm

    What a fun giveaway!

    Sugar cookies with frosting and sprinkles are my favorite cookie!

  6. madelaine yates on June 3, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    the classic oatmeal chocolate chip!

  7. Sarah on June 3, 2009 at 4:58 pm

    My fave of all time has to be peanut butter. But it’s a light crunchy peanut butter cookie with full flavor (my aunt’s recipe), not those chewy flavorless ones that you sometimes sadly bite into when you are expecting peanut buttery goodness. Awesome giveaway! Thanks in advance from whoever wins!

  8. Delilah on June 3, 2009 at 5:19 pm

    I love Dorie’s peanut butter oatmeal chocolate chipsters!

  9. Rosie on June 3, 2009 at 5:24 pm

    I would have to say my favorite cookie would have to be sugar cookies….leave me alone with a plate of these and a cold glass of milk and I would have to roll away from the table!!

  10. amanda on June 3, 2009 at 5:38 pm

    hmm… probably regular ol’ peanut butter.

  11. etirv on June 3, 2009 at 6:00 pm

    Hmmm…so hard to decide! But I would have to say, oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.

  14. Robin on June 3, 2009 at 6:55 pm

    Usually chocolate chip, but when I have to be on a low iodine diet for my thyroid cancer treatment, I can only make oatmeal raisin.

  15. TammyJo Eckhart, PhD on June 3, 2009 at 7:04 pm

    My favorite is the chocolate chocolate chip oatmeal applesauce cookies that I make at home during the colder months.

  16. Michele on June 3, 2009 at 7:07 pm

    My favorite cookie is a gingerbread dough filled with dates and raisins, rolled, and then sliced. It is simply delicious! Thanks for the chance to win the book, it look wonderful. Michele

  30. Maria on June 3, 2009 at 10:23 pm

  32. Mary Abrams on June 3, 2009 at 10:44 pm

    Not fancy, but my favorites are Mexican Wedding Cake cookies with pecans. They are easy and you know when grand children are sneaking by the powdered sugar on their faces!

  33. Judy on June 3, 2009 at 11:35 pm

    It would have to be Chewy Chocolate Chocolate-Chip Cookies. They are brownies and fudge rolled into one delicious disk of a cookie. Excuse me while I run to the kitchen to start baking…

  34. Katie on June 4, 2009 at 12:29 am

    I love raspberry filled almond thumbprint cookies

  35. Joanna on June 4, 2009 at 12:30 am

  36. Audrey on June 4, 2009 at 12:35 am

    I have a great recipe for chocolate chip peanut butter cookies that includes a bit of cinnamon and I LOVE those, even sent them to my husband in a care package while we were engaged and I was 3 states away helping my sister.

  37. Becky on June 4, 2009 at 1:26 am

    By far-chocolate chip cookies. However, I can’t think of a cookie that I’ve ever turned down! :-)

    Without a doubt, chocolate chunk cookies – warm and gooey :)

  64. Yats on June 4, 2009 at 8:01 pm

    I just adore blowout cookies! :)

  65. Chris F on June 4, 2009 at 8:26 pm

    My favorite cookie is triple chocolate cookies: chocolate cookie dough with milk chocolate and white chocolate chips or chunks. YUM!!

  68. Laura on June 4, 2009 at 9:24 pm

    Easy: chocolate chip cookies–must be thick, chewy and a little crispy. What can I say? I am boring and predictable, but a classic is a classic for a reason. :)

  69. Sweet Kitchen on June 4, 2009 at 9:54 pm

    Soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies – no question!

  70. astrocatann on June 4, 2009 at 9:56 pm

    My favorite cookie is milk chocolate digestive biscuit.
    When I get those from the store (they’re very expensive in the US!) , they normally disappear within hours ;-).

  71. Lindsay on June 4, 2009 at 11:07 pm

    My favorite is Martha Stewart’s chocolate malt sandwich cookies. If I could only have one cookie for the rest of my life, this would be it.

  72. AmyLou on June 5, 2009 at 12:32 am

    Hi! My all-time favorite cookie has got to be the “monster cookie.” Full of peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chips, chocolate coated candies and just about everything else under the sun, they are chew, gooey and delicious. Plus, they are usually 2x the size of regular cookies! YUMMY!

  73. Yen on June 5, 2009 at 1:35 am

    Love chewy chocolate chip cookies…YUMMY

  74. Kristina on June 5, 2009 at 2:19 am

    I love a good milk chocolate and white chocolate chunk cookie.

  75. Eve on June 5, 2009 at 2:46 am

    Oh man. It’s a tie between peanut butter chocolate chip and Oreos!

    Love your blog by the way! :D

  76. meatlessmama on June 5, 2009 at 8:38 am

    They are all my favorite, there’s no such thing as a bad cookie!

  77. Meghan on June 5, 2009 at 9:21 am

    I love cookies. Period! Coconut macaroons, chocolate chip, snickerdoodles, you name it. But to choose a favorite I would have to go with Pfefferneuse. We use a completely bastardized version that has been handed down in my family and is unrecognisable as it’s namesake. We make these once a year, at Christmas. It is a two day event and easier with a crowd. For Christmas of 2007, I made them with my mom and grandma and it turned out to be one of the last days I spent with my grandma before she went off the Alzheimers’ cliff, and therefore one of the last truly lucid times I spent with her. The cookies are fabulous, the smell of the scotch they are dripped with smells like Christmas to me. I cant wait to pass this tradition down to my own someday kids!

  78. Candace on June 5, 2009 at 2:40 pm

    Chocolate Chip cookies that aren’t too chewy or too crunchy. That’s not too much to ask right?

  79. Candace on June 5, 2009 at 2:50 pm
  80. Weight Watchers Chic on June 5, 2009 at 3:20 pm

    Soft Oatmeal Raisin is my favorite!!! Followed by Russian Orange cookies… YUMMM

  81. Eileen McClean on June 5, 2009 at 3:40 pm

    my favourite is Millionaire’s shortbread, a shortcrust base, caramel in the middle topped with a layer of chocolate.Yummy, great from the freezer with a cuppa tea.Thanks for this opportunity to win

  82. sylvie on June 5, 2009 at 6:57 pm

    Although it is not so original it is my favorite by far, the infamous – Chocolate Chip Cookie!

  83. ashley on June 6, 2009 at 10:36 am

    all time fave is chocolate crinkles. i’ve tried one recipe from that cookbook (amish chocolate chip cookies and they were fabulous)!

  84. maeghan on June 6, 2009 at 10:36 am

    Sugar cookie with a hint of almond extract if made correctly :) But my one true love is the choc. chip cookie!

  85. jean on June 6, 2009 at 11:18 am

    My grandma’s chocolate chip cookies. i’ve never tasted anything like them. soft, thin so the choc. chips seemed huge, and big. they were perfect.

  86. jean on June 6, 2009 at 11:38 am

    I shouted out (is that grammatically correct?) on my blog about your give away. Thanks so much for offering this!

  87. Carlene on June 6, 2009 at 1:00 pm

    My favorite cookie is Peanut Butter Cookies. Please include me in your giveaway.

  88. Sarah H on June 6, 2009 at 1:37 pm

    I like double chocolate with espresso powder..

  89. Megan on June 6, 2009 at 1:51 pm

    There is nothing better than the perfect warm chocolate chip cookie with milk!

  90. Heidi on June 6, 2009 at 3:02 pm

    I’ve actually never met a cookie that I didn’t like, but my favorite has to be still-warm chocolate chip cookies. Heavenly!

  91. Cindy on June 6, 2009 at 4:08 pm

    My all time favorite is the “Nieman Marcus” recipe that floats around the internet. Wherever it came from, that is the BEST cookie I have ever had. The dough is pretty good, too!

  92. Bread and Jam on June 6, 2009 at 7:43 pm

    My mom makes cookies called cinnamon jumbles that are somewhat like a snicker doodle but with a cake texture. Pure bliss!

  93. Lubna Karim on June 7, 2009 at 10:37 am

    Oh wow that’s an awesome book…….nice choice for giveaway…

  94. GrubsClub on June 10, 2009 at 11:04 am

    This is very nice! Even though I missed the deadline… it’s a great thing to do… and cheers for that!!!

  95. Anna on November 2, 2009 at 1:04 pm

    I know this competition has finished but I just had to say your all wrong. The best cookie in the world ever are underbaked, crispy on the outside, almost doughy on the inside, gorgeously decadent white chocolate chunk and freeze dried raspberry cookies.
    They are a cookie to live or die for and blow plain old chocolate chip out of the water!
