It’s December, the bells are jingling, stockings are being hung, and the aroma of sweet baked treats is wafting through many a home. I always have great intentions of baking special homemade goodies for all of my friends and family during the holidays. But more often than not, time runs out, and I find my good intentions glaring at me in the face come January in the form of multiple bags of chocolate chips, nuts and other extras for cookies and cakes.

So here’s an option for anyone out there with lots of good intentions but very little time, order cookies from Tate’s Bake Shop.

Tate’s Bake Shop contacted me about trying out their cookies. Try some cookies? Why sure!

And they’re some mighty fine cookies too. They’re sneaky good.

They’re a crispy, crunchy, buttery cookie that at first bite, you’re like, “Yeah, so what? It’s a cookie. And it’s a good cookie.”

Then 7 cookies later…

Sneaky good they are. Tate’s Bake Shop also has a new cookbook out packed full with some yummy looking cookie recipes.

Speaking of trying things…you get a chance to try out these yummy cookies too. Tate’s Bake Shop is giving away a gift pack of cookies and one of their cookbooks to one winner. Cool, huh?

To be entered for a chance to win, just leave a comment answering this question…

How many cookies have you eaten in one sitting (or standing)?

Be honest now.

AND for an extra entry, become a friend of Tate’s Bake Shop on facebook, and leave another comment here saying you did so.

That makes two (2) chances to be entered to win some darn good cookies.

Giveaway begins today, Thursday, December 2, 2010, and ends Monday, December 6, 2010 at Midnight PST. Winner will be announced sometime Tuesday, December 7, 2010.

But wait! That’s not all. Winner or not, Tate’s Bake Shop is offering a 15% discount on any purchases made at from now until December 31, 2010. Just enter the discount code “cookie” to receive the discount. That’s some tasty shopping!

I’ve all of a sudden got a hankerin’ for a cookie…

Check ya later!

(Again, Tate’s Bake Shop so graciously sent me some of their yummy cookies to try and a handy dandy cookbook too.)
