Cookie Contest!

By Jaime |

People often see that I cook from scratch and then start to tell me what a good mom I am am, and then berate themselves for being a bad mom. But cooking from scratch does not a good mom make. The truth is, I actually like using pre-made dough, and pre-packaged food as long as it is all natural.  The trouble is, that kind of thing can be a bit hard to find, so I mostly cook from scratch.

But last year, I found this all-natural cookie dough at Whole Foods, and tried out their spice cookies. They were very good, so I was excited when Icebox Bakery recently asked me if I would like to do a little giveaway.

To enter, please visit Icebox Bakery to see their products, and then let it inspire you to make your own cookies. You can use a favorite recipe, someone else’s, or create a brand new one. Then leave a comment in this post telling us about them. Take a picture of your cookies, and email it to me, at jaime e mormann @ (leave out the spaces!)

I will post the best pictures as I receive them throughout the week, and will announce the winner on my babble post next Monday.

The winner will receive a cookie making kit from Icebox bakery, complete with a cookie sheet, spatula, cookbook, cookie cutters, and of course, their fabulous cookie dough itself! You can see the whole gift right here.

So get creative, and get baking!

    I LOVE to bake cookies and I LOVE Icebox Bakery’s website! It is too cute! I’d love to try their cookie dough! I’ll submit a picture of cookies that I made in honor of Father’s day and “dudes” in general….beer & hot dog cookies! :)

    My cookie recipe started as just the standard, traditional, can’t lose Toll House Recipe, below. But I made the changes shown in parenthes:
    •2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour (1 c whole wheat flour, 1 c oat flour, 1/4 c flax seed meal)
    •1 teaspoon baking soda
    •1 teaspoon salt
    •1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
    •3/4 cup granulated sugar
    •3/4 cup packed brown sugar
    •1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    •2 large eggs
    •2 cups (12-oz pkg.)semi-sweet chocolate chips
    •1 cup chopped nuts
    I baked half of the dough in the batch as detailed above, at 350 for about 15 minutes(till golden).
    To the second half of the dough I added:
    1/2 c. natural rolled oats
    1/2 c. chopped dried figs
    1/2 c. dried fruit(cherries,berries,raisins)
    2T Applesauce
    2T Flaxseed
    I baked these for the some amount of time, but they made for, as you can see, a whole different cookies- more of a hearty, crunchy chewy snack. Both were a big hit!

    Hello! I made the lemon cookies: I added to the “Classic Sugar Cookie” mixture grated lemon peel, I mixed and I made the balls, which I rolled in icing sugar before baking for 20 minutes. I send you the photo!
    Thank you, great contest!

  5. Barbara says:

    Once a cookie recipe from the Friuli Venezia Giulia, a region located in northeast Italy: they are called “The s of Raveo”.
    Need 500g flour, 250g butter, melted and cooling down, 250g caster sugar, 2 eggs, 1 yolk, 10g of yeast, a pinch of salt.
    Blend all the ingredients. Left to rest for at least an hour, then worked for a few minutes. Prepare the cylinders 2 cm in diameter, then cut pieces from 10 to 12 cm pieces and bend each piece shaped “S”, then crush and cook in oven at 180 degrees for 30 minutes.

    Hi, Jaime!

    I was inspired by Icebox Bakery’s Double Dutch Chocolate cookies and I made wonderful cookies for chocoholics.

    I will be happy to try their cookie doughts!

    I just sent you pictures of the cookies.

    Cookies are my favorite thing to bake. I don’t know why, but I always prefer to make cookies small rather than large. I guess I like having more controllable portions — or maybe it’s because they’re so dang cute when they’re little. This recipe is an adaptation from a Joy of Baking classic. I always add a little extra salt because I think salt is underrated when it comes to baking. The sweet/salty combination is what makes things irresistible to me.

    Chocolate Crinkle Cookies:

    4 tablespoons unsalted butter
    8 ounces good quality semisweet chocolate (melted)
    1/3 cup granulated pure cane sugar
    2 large eggs
    2 teaspoons pure vanilla
    1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
    ½ teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon baking powder

    Beat eggs and sugar until pale and fluffy. Beat in vanilla and stir in melted chocolate.
    Add dry ingredients to chocolate mixture, stirring just until incorporated.

    Chill for 2-3 hours. Shape into tiny balls, roll into confectioners sugar until completely covered with no chocolate showing through. Bake at 325 for 8 to10 minutes.

    Picture on its way!

    You know those great big pink frosted sugar cookies you see in the gas stations from time to time? The ones that look oh-so-good, but (sadly) always end up tasting dry and flavorless? Well, I’ve got the secret to making them delicious. Now I’ve just got to get access to a kitchen to make them. I feel a sugar high coming on… :)

    please enter me in the contest. I just made Campfire S’more Cookies but I don’t have a camera to take a photo :(

  12. Deborah says:

    Right now I am on a lime kick. Anything to do with lime and it has to have the tang. I made lime zingers and they deliver. They are small bites but they pack a punch. I’ll email the picture.

  13. Jaime (sophistimom) says:

    Julie—The s’mores cookies so great! How did you make them?

    Rachel—can’t wait to see the pink frosted cookies!

    My family loves chocolate and cookies(who doesn’t? LOL). So, these little treats are perfect for mid-morning, afternoon, and mid-night snacks! ;) Hope you guys like the recipe. The picture is on its way to your email right after this comment.
    •2 1/3 cups Gold Medal All-Purpose Flour
    •3/4 cup Dutch-Processed Cocoa Powder
    •1 teaspoon Baking Soda
    •3/4 teaspoon Salt
    •1 teaspoon Instant Coffee
    •1 1/4 cups Salted Butter, softened to room temperature
    •1 cup Sugar
    •1 cup firmly packed Brown Sugar
    •1 large Egg
    •1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
    •1 cup Bittersweet Chocolate Chips
    •1 1/2 cups Mini Semisweet Chocolate Chips
    •1 cup Almonds, chopped
    1) Preheat the oven to 350F degrees. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, cocoa powder, baking soda, salt, and instant coffee.
    2) In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream the butter and sugars. Add the egg and vanilla and mix together. Add the flour mixture and continue mixing until just combined.
    3) Add the chocolates and almonds and mix until combined. Using two tablespoons or a small ice cream scoop, drop the dough two inches apart on sheet pans lined with parchment. Bake for 15 minutes.
    4) Cool the cookies on the cookie sheets. The cookies should be very soft when they are removed from the oven. They will firm up as they cool.

    Deborah sent me the recipe for these:

    Lime Zingers

    1/2 c sugar
    2 tsp lime zest
    1/4 c. key lime juice
    1 tsp vanilla
    2 1/2 c. flour

    Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Cream butter and sugar. Add lime zest, lime juice and vanilla. Add flour to make a stiff dough. Roll dough into 3/4 inch balls, put on cookie sheet and slightly flatten with a glass dipped in flour. Bake for 10 minutes. While still slightly warm, roll in powdered sugar, or let cool and dip in icing below.

    Lime icing.

    4 oz cream cheese
    1 Tbsp lime juice
    2 c. powdered sugar
