THE CONTEST IS NOW CLOSED! Congratulations to Heather Grebler who’s name was drawn – she’s our winner!!!

The idea for this contest giveaway came together when we started to plan our first ever HOLIDAY COOKIE SERIES. We decided to call upon my four sisters to each send their favourite cookie recipes, the ones that people just can’t get enough of.

Dana sent her CHOCOLATE RUM BALL recipe, Lisa, her “WHO DOESN’T LOVE” SHORTBREADS, while Milisa gave us her 100% vegan, no-bake ORANGE-ALMOND BALLS. My sister Maria sent in her recipe for “NO NAME” COOKIES, and I was like, “Are you kidding me? That doesn’t sound remotely festive, and certainly doesn’t do the cookies justice.”

Having made all of the above, Carol and I agreed that Maria’s “NO NAME” COOKIES needed a name!

We decided to hold a contest to name them, and Heather won. The official name for the cookies – APRICOT CHOCOLATE SANDWICH COOKIES!

Her prize includes includes autographed cookbooks from:

Elizabeth Baird – Classic Canadian Cooking

Ned Bell – Lure

Giselle Courteau – Duchess Bake Shop

Chuck Hughes – Chuck’s Day Off

Anna Olson – Bake with Anna Olson

Emily Richards – Per La Famiglia

Julie van Rosendaal – Best of Bridge

These SEVEN cookbooks are sure to get Heather cooking, baking, basting, roasting, toasting and sautéing in grand style!

Thanks to everyone who entered!

    I think Maria’s cookies should be named Apricot Shortcakes. They look absolutely divine, and I cannot wait to make them ! Thanks for sharing the recipes with us.

    I love baking and cooking,or to say a trying hard in the kitchen. I am also facing with the same dilemna of baking something adding this adding that and when presented to my friends and family they will ask the name and really have to reply quickand the first thing that comes to my mind will be the name. so you said using shot glass to measure, 2 thin vanilla shortbread cookies with apricot preserves drizzled in chocolate.
