GREAT. It's the busiest time of the year, the governor of Illinois has just lost his moral compass, and now this. THIS. Instead of 3 semifinalists, we have 4. Don't worry about it, though, really. Sleeping is overrated, and I can't WAIT to bake an EXTRA BATCH OF COOKIES in between my deadlines.
Seriously, here's the scoop: Orange-Sable Ginger Cookies pulled into the lead with 7 votes, and then Lemon Sunshine, Hungarian Horns, and Pistachio Dark Chocolate Biscotti tied in at 6 votes each.
Four cheers for our semifinalists...
*Heather* for her Orange-Sable Ginger Cookies
*The Diva on a Diet* for her Hungarian Horns
*Laurel* for her Lemon Sunshine Cookies
*Diana* for her Pistachio, Dark Chocolate, and Cranberry Biscotti
(I'll contact you privately for your recipes.)
In the mean time, anyone up for a true, genuine cookie swap? After all, many of the submissions had a very strong showing, and I personally don't think I can go another day without making Boob Cookies.
If the rest of you are up for it, please consider: 1) typing your recipe into the comments section; 2) providing a link to the recipe on your own blog; or 3) scanning or typing up the recipe and emailing it to me as an attachment. (I'll put it up for you. My email address is here.) (Don't forget to tell us if it's from a book or magazine.) Of course, there's no obligation to participate, moral or otherwise, but think of all the love you'll generate with your selfless act of sharing...
Thanks, in advance, for your generosity of spirit. I'll announce the Grand Prize winner and raffle winner in a few days, once I've washed all the flour out of my hair.
