Cookie Giveaway!

* This giveaway is now CLOSED. Scroll down for the winner! *


Because I love you and because next week is American Thanksgiving, I want to send YOU some cookies. Yes, you!

Plus, I feel like baking and decorating more cookies, and we still have a ton in our kitchen. Time to share the bounty!

One lucky reader will receive freshly baked cookies made by your’s truly. I’ll try to send them so that they arrive right before Thanksgiving (but no promises–I don’t have control over the US Postal Service! πŸ˜‰ ).


The winner will choose between maple sugar cookies (I’ll even make them cute for you!) and matcha white chocolate shortbread.


There are THREE ways to enter the giveaway:

(1) Leave a comment on this post about which type of cookies you’d choose if you won.

(2) Leave a comment on the maple sugar cookies post about your favorite fall treat.*

(3) Leave a comment on the matcha white chocolate shortbread post about your favorite holiday cookie.*

On Friday morning, I’ll tally up the entries from all three posts and select a winner!

So what will it be? Maple sugar cookies or matcha white chocolate shortbread?

*Note: If you’ve already left these comments, I will still count them!

The winner is Lindsey of The Morningstar Project! Lindsey, email me your address and choice of cookies at !

    Oh I’d want the sugar cookies although they both look amazing. But actually, I’d love you to just send me Ithaca, if you can make that happen…I miss my college town!!

    the maple sound awesome! but that might be because i am not sure if i like matcha. The maple ones sounded so good i thought i might just have to try and make those! πŸ™‚

    I’d definitely choose the Maple Sugar Cookie because it would remind me of when I was younger and use to get fresh maple syrup with my mom and sister from my maple tree!!!! I’d love the maple sugar cookies!!!!!

  4. says

    Oh my goodness – they both look wonderful and I wouldn’t complain if I got either one of them. However if I HAVE to choose.. I’d go for the white chocolate shortbread.

    I would love to win the matcha white chocolate shortbread cookies. A great combination of the traditional (shortbread) and the new (matcha) – what could be better for a Thanksgiving treat?!

  6. Ibu says

    Hi Julie, I have always wanted to win your scones but hopefully can win the cookies instead! I like the maple sugar cookies. I really don’t care….I just want to win because I can’t bake!

  7. Sara says

    Ahh, this is tough cause they both sound delicious! But I’d have to go with the matcha white chocolate shortbread cookies!

  8. Laura says

    I’d definitely take the maple sugar cookies. They look so cute and I imagine that they taste like a little slice of fall πŸ™‚

  9. Sophie Carman says

    How could you choose one or the other??? They both look so delicious! Can I go half and half???

  10. Jackie says

    Green tea cookies! Both look great, but I have all the ingredients for the maple ones already. Yum yum.

  11. Kelley says

    Is it legal to pick half and half?? πŸ™‚

    You know me, I’m very indecisive…

    But if I have to pick one… than I’d pick the Maple Cookies.

  12. Cellabella says

    I’m torn between the two, but I think I’d pick the Maple Sugar Cookies first – you’re awesome, thanks for this giveaway!!

  13. susitravl says

    I would definitely pick the maple sugar cookies. I love all things maple – YUMMY.

  14. Chelsea says

    They both look and sound amazing so it’s hard to choose, but I think I’d have to pick the maple sugar cookies because they are the cutest things I have ever seen!!
