Got Cookies??

Hello.  Today is all about cookies.  *waiting while the applause dies down*

First off...I was contacted by the sweet Joanna of BakedByJoanna to participate in the Mix It Up Cookie Challenge that she is having on her BLOG

I've donated a one of my cute little birdy potholders and then there is also a really, really cute frilly apron involved....!!!  Stop by and join in on the fun!  Stop by her blog post for complete details.


Now, I know you guys are already jealous of the really great prizes I've been winning lately (it's ok) --and now I get to rub another one in your face! LOL I mean "share the good news with you"! I didn't exactly win COOKIES from NotYourMamasMix---but she does have COOKIES in her shop, so I'm gonna let it slide! What I did win was some really yummy and fun Mug Cake Mixes! You mix them up in a coffee mug and pop them into the microwave--how dangerous is that?? Cake at a moments notice. *shiver*

She has such yummy concoctions as Gooey Chocolate Toffee (which I tried first....lets just say that I've never licked a coffee mug before...) and Double Chocolate Chocolate Chip (you can never have enough chocolate)! She also has cookies mixes and scone mixes and  cocoa mixes too!

NEXT, I was gonna share a link for some free Oreos (or whatever Nabisco cookie you happen to love), but I just double checked the link and the coupons are already gone for this month!  I'm gonna give you the link anyways because they give away coupons every month, all you have to do is LIKE their Facebook page and remember to check in for free coupons on the dates they tell you to! 


And last, but not least...how about a recipe for some delish Snickerdoodles! 

Snickerdoodles Cookies


1 cup butter

1 1/2 cups sugar

2 eggs

2 1/2 cups flour

2 teaspoons cream of tartar

1 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt


1/4 cup sugar (topping)

4 teaspoons cinnamon (topping)


1. Preheat oven to 400.

2. Cream butter, sugar, and eggs.

3. Blend in flour, baking soda, cream of tartar and salt. Shape dough by rounded teaspoonfuls into balls.

4. Mix 4 teaspoons cinnamon and 1/4 cup sugar in a shallow bowl.   Roll the balls in this mixture.
5. Place 2 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet.

6. Bake 8-10 minutes. Remove immediately from baking sheet.


OH!  One more cookie thing to add...I was out reading some of my fav blogs and see that our friend Lori from Faerie Window has a recipe for some cookies that she switched up for summer!  Stop by and give her recipe a shot! 

I'm gonna go take some butter out of the freezer....I have a sudden  hankering for cookies......
