A Giveaway

The other day I posted about my first "gluten free" dessert.  In one of the photos were these white, porcelain measuring spoons.  I received blog comments and personal emails regarding the spoons.  The spoons were the star of the post.  Don't get me wrong, I am glad you all loved the spoons, but the dessert was pretty fabulous as well!

Since the spoons were so well received I have decided to share them with all of you.  I am in love with these spoons!  I have tons of measuring/baking gear, but there is something about these spoons ( and their matching measuring cups ) that makes baking and cooking all the more special.  I am giving one set of spoons and a set of measuring cups to one lucky Urban Baker Follower!

Here is how to enter:

  • become a follower (maybe you already are) on my site.
  • leave me a comment telling me what your favorite cookie recipe is and where the inspiration came from
  • stop by my facebook page and "LIKE" The Urban Baker. you can leave me a comment there, as well as a second ( two comments per person )comment on this post letting me know you "liked" The Urban Baker on facebook

This Giveaway will be open from today, Friday, July 30th through Monday, August 2nd.  The contest will close on Monday at 11:00 p.m.

There will be an additional treat for the lucky winner!  Good luck.

My favorite cookies are still the classic chocolate chip with no nuts. There is just something comforting about soft warm cookies fresh out of the oven with a cup of milk. Classic and comfort are my inspiration. WHat else do you need? MMmmm...

And I LIKED the Urban Baker on Facebook :)

My favorite nostalgic cookies are Calumet sugar cookies. My family's been making them since about 1920 when one of my great grandmothers used the recipe published in an advertisement for Calumet baking powder.

They are our go-to holiday frosted cookie recipe with standard buttercream frosting- no royal icing on these babies!

Susan, my favorite cookie was a thin buttery and nicely spiced oatmeal raisin that I had up north. A friendmade them, and I never got the recipe- but they were amazing.

I always like you and want to come over and absorb your mastery some day

My favorite cookie changes constantly, but today it is the chocolate peppermint cookie from Martha Stewart. Must be because it's so hot here in Austin and that mint is so refreshing.

My current fave cookies (because I am a cookie freak!) are Smores Cookies. They are so much fun to make and you can involve little helpers and they look adorable.
