Oh how I love January. I actually think New Years might be my new favorite holiday. I just love that feeling of renewal and starting again.
It’s been a quiet month here at Jen’s Favorite Cookies. Never fear, however, I’ve been spending the time working on some behind-the-scenes projects.
My favorite recipe this month? It’s a toss up, actually. I loved the Hummingbird Cake. That is some good stuff. The Lizard couldn’t stop talking about it. I have a feeling I’ll be making it again on his birthday. But… that being said, I think the Oatmeal Cut Out Cookies were actually my favorite.
Coincidentally, they were the Cookie of the Month, the first one of the year! They are just simple, crunchy, and I love that light layer of icing on top. But more on that later. Right now, let’s remember all the January recipes.
And I get to announce the winners of my very first Cookie of the Month!
These winners are chose from those who made this months cookie, took a picture of it, and either e-mailed it to me, dropped it on my Facebook page, or tagged me on Instagram. This month, there are two winners and two prizes!
The first prize is a selection of silicone baking mats from Kitchen Executive Chef. These mats are extra thick, high quality, non-stick, and makes clean up a breeze. The winner of these mats is Angie S! Congratulations Angie!
The second prize is a $25 gift card to Amazon. This prize goes to Shelley S! Congratulations Shelley!
Don’t miss out on the fun. February’s Cookie of the Month will be announced on Monday February 2, 2015. In the meantime, get loads of great cookie recipe ideas on my Pinterest board!
