giveaway: crazy about cookies book!
And the winner is…
(and it was her extra tweet’d entry that won!)
Thanks to everyone who entered… and the amazing list of yumminess that you produced in the comments!
My favorite cookie of all time? Grandma’s Monster cookies! Mmmm… I can smell that peanut buttery M&M oatmeal goodness right now!
I just got done flipping through Krystina Castella’s newest cookbook Crazy about Cookies (she’s also the author of Crazy About Cupcakes, Booze Cakes, Pops! Icy Treats for Everyone, and A World of Cake) and I’m so happy to find out that it really delivers what it promises: occasion based cookies that you really want to eat!
The book is divided into 6 sections: Basic equipment and tips, Everyday cookies, Party cookies, Occasion cookies, Holiday cookies and Christmas cookies. And within it, there are endless ideas for cookie treats for any occasion! I really like the amount of “creative” options there are in the book, as compared to say, Martha’s compendium of a Cookie book. The Smores cookies look scrumptious, and I desperately want to find the time to make Snowglobe cookies as presents for friends and co-workers!
Anyhow… while you might want to take a glance at this book on your next trip down the Recipe aisle at B&N, I’m going to give someone the opportunity to win a copy of the book for their own holiday fetes!
Before Friday (11/12), just leave a comment here on this post sharing your favorite cookie of all time! Don’t be ashamed if you love OREO’s over grandma’s chocolate chip cookies… just share and you’re entered to win!
And for this contest, you can tweet to win as well! Just tweet “I’m crazy about cookies and that’s why I’d love to win this book! https://www.kimberlymichelle.com/NAxr “ and leave an additional comment saying you tweeted and share your twitter handle!
The winner will be randomly selected from all entries on Friday at 3pm PST. Good luck!
p.s. it was also photographed by the super awesome of Teri Lyn Fisher FishFood!

I *love* the Charmingly Chewy Chocolate Chip cookies from Trader Joe’s — they are my kryptonite :)
My mil makes the best peanut butter blossom cookies. Yum!
My favorite cookies of all time are my gramma’s Sour Cream Cookies. They are seriously the best cookies ever. And this statement is not from guilt ;) Thanks for the giveaway Kim!
I love chocolate covered cherry cookies – basically little pools of chocolate with chocolate chunks and dried cherries. Yum!
I’d have to say my favorite cookies are Snickerdoodles, homemade or not, I just love ’em.
My favorite cookies are the CC cookies from Magpie, so delicious!
My favorite cookies is my husband’s as he created them 5 years ago.
They are called the Ibarramos PB cookies. He melts the Ibarra mexican chocolate with the ghriadelli chocolate and and freezes them into chunks and then mixes in his “secret” PB recipe!
I go crazy for chewy gingersnaps or homemade chocolate chip cookies :)

I don’t like to discriminate…I love them all! However if I had to choose, I would probably have to go with homemade chocolate chip cookies that are fresh out of the oven. Thanks for the giveaway!!
I’m with Holly. I haven’t met a cookie that I wasn’t meant to love :)
But, currently, my favorite is a hazelnut heath cookie. Divine.
My grandma makes really, really good snickerdoodles. I won’t be seeing her at Thanksgiving this year so I’ll need my parents to bring me back a bundle of them!
I tweeted also. Twitter handle: formerlygood :)
My mother-in-law makes Oreo cookie balls (basically crushed oreos blended with cream cheese formed into balls and covered with white chocoloate) and I LOVE them!
My all time favorite cookies are snickerdoodles. They just melt in my mouth- LOVE them!
I tweeted! @basicallyjulie
Mmm…favorite ever? That’s hard to pick! I’d have to say good old chocolate chip…but add some toffee in there to make it even better!
I luv all cookies. It’s to hard to choose a favorite. But I do luv (with a passion) Mrs.Field’s Oatmeal Raisin.
I love cookies, especially fresh out of the oven but my favorite is snickerdoodle… or no, white chocolate chip macadamia nut? I can’t decide!
I love oatmeal chocolate chip …. the oatmeal makes it “healthy” to me.
Aubrey @ My Simple Everyday
Awesome giveaway!!! I heart snickerdoodles!!!
My favorite would have to be molasses cookies. Sweet, chewy, spicy and savory flavors all at the same time!
I could eat a whole bag of Mother’s Iced Oatmeal Cookies, but homemade I love a nice hot chocolate chip cookie.
Basically any cookie straight out of the oven is my kind of heaven! If I had to choose, I love the gingerbread cookie I make every fall. Hmmm.. come to think of it, I haven’t made them yet…
My favorite are oatmeal chocolate chip cookies!
Old Pa cookies…
Super thin and crispy coated with cinnamon and sugar!
Cranberry white chocolate chip cookies. Yumm!
I love Tate’s chocolate chip cookies, which are thin and crispy and delicious!
Snickerdoodles. I love them
Give me a chocolate chip cookie and I am a happy girl! (but no nuts – that just ruins the cookie for me).
E @ Oh! Apostrophe
My Mom makes the best chocolate covered cherry cookies, and I have never asked her for the recipe because I can never eat less than 12 at a time.
I tweeted also! @kinziesays
Although I love a good chocolate chip cookie as much as the next gal, I’d have to say that the Russian tea cookie (also known as a Mexican wedding cookie?) might edge out the choco chip for my top favorite spot! Also my birthday is Friday, so let’s hope the random number generator knows that and picks me, this would be amazing to have!
Mmmmm, I love Scotchies, Oatmeal with butterscotch chips. Yum!
I LOOOOOVE Girl Scouts Thin Mint cookies! =)
I love oatmeal chocolate chip. Yum!
Kelly | Glamour This
chunk chocolate chip for sure!
That’s easy — my grandmother’s pinwheel cookies!
My Martha Stewart fluffy chocolate chip cookies… they’re puffy and sinfully delicious!
I’m pretty dedicated to the traditional tollhouse chocolate chip cookie recipe! Love it!
I also tweeted about your contest, handle is tealeth922
My favorite cookies are Iced pumpkin cookies! They taste like fall all year long!!
I looooooove Tassies – my nana makes the best :)
Snickerdoodles are by far the best.
Anything with enough butter to make me feel guilty :D
i have always had a special part in my heart for nutter butters. mmm. peanut butter.
just tweeted! this will be perfect. i’m thinking of making different cookies for my christmas baskets this year!
My hubby’s vegan oatmeal choco chip – YUM
I tweeted under HamiHarri too :)
Peanut butter chocolate chip always wins for me. :)
Hmm hard to choose! Peanut butter creme cookies!
Amy @ The Nifty Foodie
I’m not gonna lie…I’m in love with Girl Scout Samoas. My homemade chocolate chip cookies do come close to being a fave, but ultimately, Samoas win my heart (and tummy). :)
Absolutely love double chocolate drops. Chocolate based chocolate chip cookie. Served warm over vanilla ice cream?! No comparison!
Can’t wait to get this & experiment with some of them for the holidays! Watching my mailbox eagerly! Thanks for the great giveaways:)
