The good people at OXO have provided me with a complimentary spatula — specifically, their limited-edition “Good Cookie” spatula, which has a wonderful story behind it. The humble (and stylish) kitchen utensil is tied to OXO’s Cookies for Kids’ Cancer, a public charity founded by two OXO employees, Gretchen and Larry Witt, whose son Liam faced a battle with pediatric cancer. The company rallied around the Witts, and through baking cookies and holding bake sales, OXO has raised over $150,000 for the charity.
Now with the “Good Cookie” Spatula comes another fundraising drive. 50% of profits from the spatula will benefit pediatric cancer awareness, up to $100,000. At $6.99, it’s a great way to help out. The “Good Cookie” spatula is available at Bed, Bath & Beyond, amazon.com, and various other local retailers (check out http://www.oxogoodcookies.com/cookie_spatula/index for more info).
BUT WAIT. This is a contest after all, and OXO has not only provided me with a “Good Cookie” spatula, but they’ve provided one for YOU too — assuming you win the contest. The rules are simple: submit the best cookie recipe ever in the comments. The winner, as chosen by me, receives a free “Good Cookie” spatula, courtesy of OXO.
PROTIP: know your judge. I hate berries (except for cranberries) and peaches. If you include those in your cookie, I can guarantee I won’t even consider it. Also, I love chocolate. I’m open to non-chocolate cookies, but… the presence of chocolate will certainly give you an advantage. You have until noon on Friday, December 16th.
