Giveaway: Tell Us Your Favorite Cookie to Enter to Win!




*** This giveaway is closed and a winner has been chosen. ***

Though I applaud all of you who have decided to skip the sugar, banish the booze, and cancel any and all dates with carbohydrates to counteract those holiday indulgences, I think it’s time to reward yourself for all that restraint. My solution: Cookies. But not just any cookies, mind you. I’m talking about sinfully spiced, jaw-dropping-ly decadent, make-those-calories-count kind of cookies. Here are four of my favorite ways to feel good about being just a little bit bad. (And don’t forget to enter to win a box of cookies at the end of this post!)

Lark Saint Nicholas: Also known as speculaas, these seasonal cookies warm up even the coldest winter nights with almond, spices, and butter. (I adore them with Chai tea) BUY IT NOW

Lark Scourtins: Based on the traditional French-style version, these sweet and savory olive (yup, olives) wafers are highly addictive. Maggie loves to serve them with cheese or a spot of bubbly. BUY IT NOW

Whimsy & Spice Chocolate Gingersnaps: Perfect with a tall glass of milk or a warm cup of tea, these cookies capture the decadence of chocolate and the spiciness of ginger. Hmmm. Amazing. BUY IT NOW

Whimsy and Spice Chocolate Orange Cardamom Shortbread Cookies: Cardamom. Dark chocolate. Orange zest. Shortbread. Does it get any better than that? Amy doesn’t think so. BUY IT NOW
