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.

    Hmm…that IS tough! My current favorite though is chocolate chip brownie pillows. Chocolate chip cookie AND a brownie all at once? Yes, please!

    my favorite cookie would have to be oatmeal. I love them when they are still chewy. Plus you can do so many different add ins to make them different every time.

    Peanut butter cookies with a hershey’s kiss on top are my favorite. My mom made them every Christmas. The tradition has carried on for me and my kids.

    I love so many different types of cookies but right now I am craving good old fashioned peanut butter cookies.

  5. Joanna

    There are so many…how to choose?!? I’ll go with snickerdoodle…followed closely by chocolate chip with pecan.

    Fred Meyers in West Jordan UT used to make a caramel apple cookie that was SUPER yummy! They stopped making it and I can’t find anything even close to it now. But that is my favorite! Amy

    Hard choice, but I think my favorite is triple chocolate chunk cookies – dark chocolate dough, dark and white chocolate chunks – does it get any better than that???
