Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend!! My dear friend Camilla Saulsbury, talented cookbook author and cooking contest queen 🙂 has offered to give 3 of her beautiful “Shortcut Cookies” cookbooks to Picky Palate readers! I have had the pleasure of meeting Camilla at numerous cooking competitions and I must say she is not only a talented cook and baker, but a wonderful friend too! This is just in time for your Valentine’s Day Baking too!
Here is some information on her book:
With over 745 recipes for cookies starting with packaged doughs, mixes, and cereals, Shortcut Cookies is one of Camilla’s best books yet. And given her penchant for perfection, you can be sure anything Camilla’s tested will be delicious enough for the school functions, bake sales and friends.
Some stand-outs from the book include an Italian Cheesecake Bar made with refrigerated sugar cookie dough, ricotta cheese, and traditional Italian flavorings of orange, golden raisin and hazelnuts; Lemon Curled Swirled Cheesecake Bars made with a packaged lemon cake mix base; Mango Cream Bars, with a crust of crushed gingersnaps and cream cheese & fresh lime topping and a recipe called “Dad’s Double Peanut Butter Frosted Brownies” made up of a brown sugar doctored brownie mix and topped with Camilla’s homemade peanut butter frosting. My favorite chapter is always “Brownies” and Camilla has a bunch including Turkish Coffee Brownies, Whiskey Brownies and Aztec brownies which I will review very soon.
Over on Camilla’s blog Shortcut Cookies, she’s taking recipes from the book and making them with all-natural and gluten free mixes. Be sure to check it out.

I love Whiskey! It’s always interesting to read what other fanatics think about such an old drink. Does anyone know how many calories there are in Japanese Whiskey?
Oh I’m dying for a new dessert cookbook! This one looks wonderful! My favorite cookie is a sugar cookie at one of our local sandwich shops. It is so buttery and yummy! I wish I knew how to make it!
oatmeal chocolate chip!
My FAVORITE cookies . . . Applesauce, raisin, chocolate chip. They are soft and the most wonderful cookie on earth.
My favorite cookie is White Chocolate Macadamia Cookie, I will kill for this cookie 🙂
I made your peanut butter and chocolate duo cookies, and they were sooooo yummy! I think that might be my new favorite. Thanks!
Love those chocolate chip cookies.
I LOVE pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
My favorite cookie of all time would have to be peanut butter chocolate chip cookies. Seriously yummy…and chewy. LOVE them!!!
My favorite cookie is a Sour Cream cookie – a long time family favorite.
I don’t even have to think about this one. My all time favorite is milk chocolate chunk cookies still warm out of the oven with a cold glass of milk!
A real crowd-pleaser cookie for all ages is my Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookie (must be slightly underdone out of oven to melt in your mouth when cooled.) Wholesome and comforting.
Macadamia Nut. hands down.
I absolutely love the white chocolate, crasin cookies on the back of the crasin package. Love it!
I have to say that my favorite cookies are the Surprise Package cookies with the Andes mints in them. Yum!
i am a huge fan of eggnog snickerdoodles!
My favorite is oatmeal raisin. Also recently used Craisins which were surprisingly good.
Mine is, hands down, snickerdoodle. I’m always so anxious for Christmas to come around so it’s socially acceptable to make them in mass quantities.
Good ol’ chocolate chip for me!
I love double chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal!
White Chocolate chip, pecan, toffee!! YUMMMM!
Peanut butter oatmeal, with chocolate chips!
I love a pecan pie shortbread cookie, love all cookies! Anything with nuts!
My favorite cookies are chocolate chip made with rice crispies or oatmeal.
I actually have two and they have to be a certain recipe. My mom’s sugar cookies and my friends chocolate chip cookies! Fabulous!
I tweeted about YOUR giveaway! Thanks for the many chances!
Right now I am totally on a sugar cookie kick — super soft, thick cookies with creamy, homemade frosting — Yum!
I absolutely LOVE a good, soft, fresh snickerdoodle!! They are the best 😀
I love my grandma’s boiled raisin cookies! I don’t make them very often because I’ll eat the whole batch
I would rather have a cookie than any other desert/treat and so that makes this a hard choice, but I must say that a chewy home-made chocolate chip cookie can always have my vote!
Favorite cookie of all time-my grandmother’s homemade sugar cookies with buttercream frosting-YUMMY 🙂
Just found your site – love it!! My favorite cookie is the plain old peanut butter!
I don’t have just one favorite, but a few of my favorites are double chocolate chip, orange cookies, and toffee, chocolate chip.
Hey my name is Camilla too…weird! Not a common name at all! My favorite cookies are these Chocolate Chocolatey Chip Cookies my mom used to make when we were growing up. They are the best. My mom always had cookies in the cookie jar and all the neighbor kids knew it and loved coming over. I hope to carry on that tradition with my children. My son is already a huge fan of cookies so I think I am doing a good job! I will post something on my blog rcworkman.blogspot.com and I am now a follower of you under foodie friends.
