If you've been reading this blog a while, you know I've been baking (and whining about baking) all my eight zillion Christmas cookies. I'm still not done.
But that's my problem, not yours, though it may SEEM like yours if you stop by too often.
I have been thinking that it would be fun to give away a selection of all these cookies to someone ELSE besides all the usual recipients.
I don't know what will be in the selection - and if you've got any nut allergies, sorry, but there is no way I can avoid nuts in this house (I married one and gave birth to two more, HAR HAR HAR), so I can't really offer anything that hasn't come in contact with nuts or nut-laced air or something.
But other than that...
I want to send off some cookies. And so the contest will begin now and I'll close it at MIDNIGHT TONIGHT, DECEMBER 15th, EASTERN STANDARD TIME.
And the winner will be chosen (by Softie this time, as Scratchy and my kids have already had their turns at it) at random.
Now, to enter.
I may be asking a lot here, but what I'd really like are old family cookie recipes - if you're permitted to share them. I know some families guard recipes like my husband guards his fishing spots. But if you can share, and would like to, that's what I'd love to see here.
So, if you want to enter, please post a cookie recipe in the comments section OR, if you have a blog and you've posted the recipe there already, then put the link in the comments section.
And if you're not from a cookie-making kind of family? I'll take anything you've got.
Mostly, I just like to peer, figuratively, of course, through the windows of other families houses and see what their food traditions are. So, since I'm busy making cookies and can't go around peering, I'm asking you to give me that glimpse.
Does all that make sense? I hope so.
Anyway, enough of my babbling. I've got to get the kids ready for school.
The contest starts now, and the winner will be chosen tomorrow (once I can get Softie to cooperatie) and announced ASAP. PLEASE check back here tomorrow and if you're the winner, email me your shipping address so I can get the cookies out to you quickly!
