‘Tis the season of cookies. Yum.

Until writing this post, winter has been my absolute least favorite season. I see the sun every other day. It’s cold. It’s dark. There’s slush everywhere. We can’t park our cars on our street if there is more than two inches of snow. So, basically we can’t park our cars on our street for the next four months.

See why winter is last on my list?

But, winter does have one redeeming quality. Baked goods. Specifically cookies.

So, what better way to fully embrace the cookie baking season than with a cookie baking giveaway?

As part of OXO’s Blogger Outreach program, I was selected to give away one of their “Be a Good Cookie” spatulas as part of their Cookies for Kids’ Cancer project. I also received one for my own use and love it! I know you will too.

Cookies for Kids’ Cancer was discovered by two OXO employees whose son was diagnosed with pediatric cancer. While treating their son, the parents learned that over 25% of kids diagnosed with cancer do not survive because of a lack of effective therapies. And, the lack of therapies is due to a lack of funding.

Cookies for Kids encourages individuals, communities and businesses to raise money for pediatric cancer through local bake sales.

This year, OXO will donate up to $100,000 from its limited edition “Be a Good Cookie” spatula profits to benefit pediatric cancer research. To purchase a “Be a Good Cookie” spatula and help fight against pediatric cancer, visit your nearest Bed, Bath and Beyond, Amazon or check out the store locator at www.oxogoodcookies.com to find a local retailer.

I wish I had a new cookie recipe for you, but being on crutches does not really allow me to be very active in the kitchen. But, check out some of the blogs on my Blogroll for some great cookie ideas for the holidays. They won’t let you down!

Do you want a Good Cookie spatula? Leave a comment on this post and follow me on Twitter with mention of this post for a chance to win! You have until Friday, Dec. 16 at midnight to enter, so be sure to comment and tweet before then! I’ll mail out the spatula to the winner!
