Even if you don’t bake much the rest of the year, you probably do some baking around the holidays. The weather is cold, the atmosphere is festive and all the pieces required to bake a batch of Christmas cookies or dig out grandma’s signature pie recipe just seem to fall into place. I do a lot of extra baking during the holidays and always stock up on baking supplies – especially vanilla extract and spices – because I know that I’m going to go through them much faster than usual.Â To make sure that you don’t run out of these holiday baking staples, I’m hosting a Rodelle Gourmet Baking Set Giveaway, where there will be two lucky winners! The baking set includes Madagascar Bourbon Vanilla Extract, Almond Extract, and premium ground cinnamon and nutmeg. The jars are all very generously sized, so you’ll have plenty to get you through baking season!
To enter the contest, just leave a comment below and tell me what your favorite holiday cookie is. The contest ends Monday at midnight (12/16/2013) and two winners will be randomly selected from the entries. Donâ€™t forget to fill in your e-mail on the comment form (it will not be made public), as that is how I will contact the winner, and good luck! Here are a couple of recipes that use these delicious flavors for inspiration:
If you don’t want to take your chances with the contest, you can also pick up one of these Gourmet Baking Sets at Costco stores this season. And while you’re in a contest-entering mood, don’t forget to enter this year’s Rodelle Challenge for a chance to win a KitchenAid Stand Mixer and lots of other awesome goodies.
Â Update: Congrats to Kim and mrsblocko! This giveaway is now closed. Thanks to everyone for participating!

I like snickerdoodle cookies a ton during the holidays. For some reason, they’re not made during the rest of the year in my family. Paired with a cool glass of milk, they make amazing nighttime treats!

Although I don’t think of them as a holiday cookie per se, the cookie I associate most with Christmas is the Andes Candies chocolate/mint cookies. That’s what I look for each year in addition to our holiday decorated sugar cookies.

So many choices. So far I have made Cranberry Pistachio Oatmeal, huge chocolate chip cookies with cake flour, Chocolate Crackle cookies and Rugelach. They are all delicious. I certainly could make good use of this Rodelle Gourmet Baking Set. Thank you.
