Peanut Butter Cup Shortbread Giveaway

Thursday, September 18, 2008


Cookies by Kristin is a new shop on Etsy--just about one month old--but I'm hooked already! These peanut butter cup shortbread cookies are baked fresh when you place your order and then shipped Priority Mail so you get them quickly. Melt-in-your-mouth delicious, I could easily down half an order with my morning coffee. At $6/dozen, that makes this the best $3 breakfast I've ever had. And for that matter, the best shortbread cookies I've ever had. They're good for late night snacks, too. And mid-afternoon snacks. And dessert.

Kristin is not only an awesome baker, she's also very generous. She's giving away a dozen fabulous peanut butter cup shortbread cookies to two separate winners! Here's how to enter:

1. You must have a U.S. mailing address.
2. Have a look at Cookies by Kristin, then come back here and leave a comment telling what flavor of shortbread cookie you'd love to see in her shop next. (I'm hoping for a peanut butter and strawberry combo, sort of a PBJ flavor!)
3. Earn an extra entry by posting about this giveaway on your blog, with links to both this post and to Cookies by Kristin; then leave a second comment on this post letting us know where to find your post.
4. Earn a third entry by making a purchase from Cookies by Kristin, and comment here with your transaction number.
5. Make sure there is a link to your blog or an email address accompanying your comment so that I can contact you if you're a winner.
6. September 25, 2008, is the last date to comment. On September 26 I'll use that randomizer thingie to select the winners.

I've been busy lining up more terrific giveaways, so come back soon and see what else I'm giving away!

I think that a shortbread with a white chocolate with orange food coloring added to it would make a great fall cookie! =) Ooh..and garnish with almond slivers...mmmmm!

pistachio! That sounds like it'd be yummy with a cup of joe!

Christine said...

Those cookies look scrumptious...I wish I was better at baking (sighs). The fudge ectasies are my favorite by far on the page.

Jessica said...

Chocolate is my next love after Peanut butter, so I think a chocolate covered shortbread would be delicious! Your idea of peanut butter and strawberry sounds great too... mmmm... yummy...

bookworm said...

I'm with Jessica on this one, chocolate drizzled over the shortbread sounds heavenly. Of course, chocolate over anything is pretty good, but shortbread is so good in it's own right, chocolate would only enhance it!

Ginny said...

I think a light lemon flavor would taste good. Personally chocolate is a favorite, that fudge cookie looks fantastic & so does this peanut butter one!

I'd love to see some almond cookies! Or hazelnut. A chocolate walnut cookie might be good too, or a Mexican butter cookie!

I'm thinking something with chocolate and mint would be good. I go gaga for that combo. But your PB&J idea sounds good too...I bet my kids would love those.
