Springtime Fun with Cookies Giveaway

The weather has finally warmed up and there's a lovely coating of yellow pollen on everything, inside and out. It's spring! I thought what better way to celebrate the end of such a long winter (well, for most of us - sorry to those of you are still getting wintry weather - crazy!) than with a giveaway sponsored by yours truly! :) I also thought that this would be a fun way to say thank you to all of my awesome readers who take the time to stop by and read my posts. I REALLY appreciate each and every one of you!


So here are the goods: 
  1. Wilton's Bug Buddies Cookie Cutters (different from the cookie cutters I used)
  2. Wilton's Bright Sugar Sprinkles in lovely springtime colors
  3. 2 packs of Sugar Stencils = 12 springtime fun designs

Here's the cookie recipe I used. Found it on the back of a set of Christmas Cookie Cutters I bought last year. The girls just rave about it, so it's the one I stick with: Grandma's Sugar Cookies from Good Cooks.

And just so it's clear, the cookie cutters I'm giving away are all bug-shaped. They don't include the plain circle, scalloped circle nor the flower cutter. Sorry I couldn't show you what they would turn out like since I don't have a set myself, but I thought they were SOOOOO cute when I ran across them.

When decorating these, Little Sis was helping and accidentally spilled a bunch of sugar on her cookies whereas I carefully sprinkled mine, making sure not to put too much on. Guess what? Hers turned out WAY better than mine, so from then on, we were both generous w/ the sugar to get that well-defined design. It also helped to carefully press the sugar into the cookie using your finger. Good job, Little Sis! She's such a good little helper in the kitchen. Here, these cookies have been carefully decorated and are ready to go in the oven.


And now they're cooling on my cookie racks. We were pretty happy with the way they turned out. I was a little pessimistic at how well these stencils would work, but I'm a believer now!




And without further ado... enter away! Good luck!

Now THAT is neat! I have never seen a cookie stencil before. I wonder if other stencils would work, too. I make cards so I have some neat stencils but they are all tiny--I'd have to go in search of some bigger ones. Most of mine are for borders--and I've never used them because I'm not good with stencils... but putting sugar crystals onto a cookie with a stencil? That seems easy! And beautiful.
