I have a couple of great items that have been sitting around my office, just begging for a great giveaway opportunity. In fact, I might have a few giveaways coming up! With the holidays upon us, I couldn’t think of a better time to start than now. This giveaway is for a box of holiday baking goodies from Nestle – including coupons for holiday baking essentials, such as Tollhouse chocolate chips (I have to recommend trying the Dark Chocolate & Mint Chips that I found at the market the other day), as well as some samples of their other products – and a pair of matching Adult and Child aprons that will help keep you clean during your holiday baking.
To enter the giveaway, simply leave a comment naming your favorite holiday treat to bake and winner will be chosen at random when the contest closes. Be sure to include your e-mail address on the comment form so I can contact you if you win (e-mails will not be viewable on the site). This is a holiday weekend so you have until midnight PST on Sunday, November 28th to enter! Good luck – and great holiday baking!
Update: Contest is now closed! Thanks for entering!

I love making butter cookies! We decorate them with colored powdered sugar glaze, swirl the colors with toothpicks, and decorate them with sprinkles and those metallic dragees. They’re great!

EmmaNovember 26, 2010
I like to bake different cookies to give as gifts, that way everyone is happy to get a good treat to eat and I’m happy that I get to eat the dough as I bake them 🙂

One of my brothers is n0 a big fan of sweets (which breaks my heart since I’m a baker), but he does like my cinnamon strusel coffee cake. He asks for it every year for his Christmas gift, and I love baking something for him that I know he will enjoy.

I love making matzo bark. Its very simple and tasty. Just take large sheets of matzo and layer with homemade toffee, then pour melted chocolate over it. Yum. I usually sprinkle with nuts, broken candy cane or little white chocolates.
tweetieNovember 26, 2010
Love to make caramels, peanut butter cups, toffee and all types of brownies……turtle, peanut butter, peppermint patty.
AngelaNovember 26, 2010
My favorite holiday treat to bake has to be my little sister’s famous chocolate crinkle cookies. She always gets tired of making them just about when the dough comes together, so she makes tennis-ball-sized mounds of dough in order to bake all the dough quicker…the result, of course, is huge cookies with yummy, half-baked interiors. It’s a holiday tradition in my family!
annieNovember 26, 2010
It’s a yearly tradition in our family to bake mounds of different cookies, some to keep and many to give away to neighbors and friends. I would like to make some candy this year to add to the bags of goodies.

almond toffee…it’s crazy good.
Katie P.November 26, 2010
Sugar Cookies for the win! I love them so that I have to ignore them until the holidays.
MaribethNovember 26, 2010
My favorite holiday treats to make are: Martha Stewart’s recipe for Honey – Gingerbread cookies, decorated by my daughter and her friends, and your peanut butter – chocolate stars.
Lee CockrumNovember 26, 2010
I always love the “standard” chocolate chip cookies, but I really love to bake almost anything!!
DaniNovember 26, 2010
My absolute favorite holiday goodie (and hubby’s too) are my pumpkin cupcakes. Great way to get that amazing veggie in since I don’t like pumpkin pie (gasp!) and it’s absolutely delicious! I’ve had to make 4 batches so far this month because people keep requesting it!
Jillian M.November 26, 2010
I love the bake my mom’s famous Chocolate Chess Pie! It is everyone’s favorite around the holidays!
Amanda :}November 26, 2010
i bake ALOT of cookies for the holidays, but my favorite thing to bake is actually stollen…. i’m always trying to improve my recipe and technique. i love stollen that is spicy, dry and subtly sweet…. goes perfect with tea 🙂

Cookies, mostly bar type: oatmeal jam squares and pecan pie bars. I always bake a bunch of Mexican wedding cookies. So good and EASY!
PatriciaNovember 26, 2010
I love to bake tons of cookies for Christmas and I also like to do chocolates of all kinds. I always make too many, but my friends and neighbors never complain.
Heritage BelleNovember 26, 2010
My favorite are what we call at my house – Becky’s Good Lemon Cookies. No one remembers who exactly Becky is, but we thank her for her recipe because that are indeed good lemon cookies.
JennyNovember 26, 2010
pumpkin cheesecake! holidays are the perfect excuse to overindulge 😀
MeganNovember 26, 2010
Spritz cookies–when my cookie press cooperates, which I cannot rely on (something in the mechanism is prone to slipping from time to time).
raineyNovember 26, 2010
I always bake a sour cream babka. I got the recipe from the LA Times 10 years or more ago. It’s wonderful and makes great gifts.
Ari Y.November 26, 2010
Mmmmmmm Apple pie!!! Instead of using nutmeg, I use pumpkin pie spice, which doesn’t make that big of a difference but adds just a bit of the ginger flavor which is great. I also add just a bit of Hershey’s Dulce de Luce syrup to the top after I dot it with butter, and it just adds a little bit of a caramel flavor without making a Caramel Apple Pie. It’s my family’s new favorite!!
ShariNovember 26, 2010
Chocolate chip cookies, without a doubt! I have a great recipe that everyone LOVES and requests, and I’m happy to oblige. 🙂
JennaNovember 26, 2010
Love your blog! My favorite holiday item is Buckeyes. I think it’s an Ohio-thing, but it’s peanut buttery balls dipped in chocolate. It’s almost like a candy and it’s delicious! 🙂
Stephanie P.November 26, 2010
It’s hard not to claim pumpkin pie as a favorite right after Thanksgiving!
MikeWNovember 26, 2010
Pumpkin pie, of course! It’s a Thanksgiving Day staple.
Laura E.November 26, 2010
White and dark chocolate chip cookies, yummy, they have pieces of ginger in them.

Close tie between the good old sugar cookie cutouts and the caramel puffcorn.
