A Cookie Giveaway (quick run)!!!

It's a first here on Food Beautiful but to keep the cookie baking coming this week we have our first giveaway (yeah!). And what's better than that??? The fact that this giveaway is to drive awareness for OXO's Cookies for Kids' Cancer Program.

It's cookie week here and to support all your holiday baking OXO has given me a "Good Cookie" spatula to test out and one to give away to a lucky winner. I love things that are cute and for a cause! The spatula is perfect for lifting those hot cookies off the tray onto a cooling rack. I also like to leave it on my counter so people think I've been baking all day...feel free to steal that trick.

Cute, right? Now let's talk about the amazing cause. Cookies for Kids' Cancer was born to help fight pediatric cancer through local bake sales. This year OXO will donate up to $100,000 to support research for new therapies - THANK YOU OXO. Visit to share some virtual cookies, find out how to host a bake sale or to find a retailer for the "Good Cookie" spatulas.

Don't you think this little tool could help you whip up one of these beauties???

Simply leave a comment on this post with your favorite childhood cookie. I'll pick a winner on Thursday - and actually try to recreate that cookie recipe this weekend.

And for an extra entry, simply follow @foodbeautyful and RT the following to pass on awareness for this great cause. "RT Support Cookies' for Kids and enter the @foodbeautyful Giveaway"

Good Luck to All!!!

And if you don't win, definitely purchase one for yourself and a couple as gifts on Amazon - remember 50% of the profits benefit pediatric cancer awareness!
