## Christie Cookie Giveaway

If my brief mention of a cookie factory in yesterday’s chocolate chip cookies and cream ice cream post caught your attention, well, you’re in luck. Because today I want to introduce you to The Christie Cookie company, a Nashville-based purveyor of delicious cookies and other tasty gifts for 30 years.

Now, I’m not one to regularly endorse commercially made cookies, so keep your fake-tasting and chemical-laden pirate cookies away from me. I will always choose homemade if given the option. However, I have to make an exception for Christie Cookie. Their cookies are about as homemade-tasting as they get, made with no preservatives and quality ingredients through and through. Not to mention they are about as local as it gets (to me at least, the factory is literally within walking distance of my house).

My favorite just might be the white chocolate macadamia nut. It’s not just good, it’s eat-five-cookies-in-one-sitting-good. Locally made and incredibly delicious? Now that’s a cookie I can totally get behind.

And since I know most of you aren’t lucky enough to be within walking distance of this magical place, I’ve got a very special giveaway today brought to you by The Christie Cookie company. One lucky L&OO reader will win a **$100 gift certificate** for ChristieCookies.com. Share the love and send some delicious cookie tins to friends and family, or have it shipped to your secret PO box and hoard it all for yourself (I don’t blame you).

Posted OnJuly 9, 2013at9:25 amI love peanut butter blossoms – nothing like a warm soft peanut butter cookie with a chocolate kiss melting atop.

Posted OnJuly 9, 2013at9:26 amPeanut Butter Chocolate Chip!

Posted OnJuly 9, 2013at9:26 amI receive email updates.

Posted OnJuly 9, 2013at9:27 amMy favorite cookie is chocolate chip. But it has to be perfectly crafted. Chewy around the edges and underbaked in the center with the correct ratio of chocolate to cookie. Otherwise, why bother?

Posted OnJuly 9, 2013at10:11 amMy favorite cookies are called Monster cookies, but that is only because you are supposed to make them large. They have no flour…only oatmeal, peanut butter, eggs, chocolate chips, m 7 ms…well, you get the idea. Chewy, crunchy, chocolaty and healthy!

Posted OnJuly 9, 2013at10:12 amMy favorite is double chocolate chunk.

Posted OnJuly 9, 2013at10:19 amHow can you choose a favorite cookie?! I’m always a sucker for a good, soft chocolate chip cookie, but I also love sugar cookies, and peanut butter cookies because I love peanut butter so much, and sometimes oatmeal raisin really hits the spot….

Posted OnJuly 9, 2013at10:23 amMy favorite is chocolate chip cookies without the chocolate chips. So I guess that would be a brown sugar cookie.
