Win The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook

Update: The contest is now closed and we have a winner!

Who could possibly pass up the chance to immerse themselves in a veritable sea of chocolate chip recipes? If you thought the Melting Moments looked heavenly just wait until thursday. In the meatime, I’m giving you the chance to win a copy of Elinor Klivans’s The Essential Chocolate Chip Cookbook published by Chronicle Books. All you have to do is leave a comment on this post (one comment per person please). A winner will be selected via the nifty random number generator this Friday (June 13th) at noon and than I’ll promptly ship the cookbook to your home. Friday the 13th totally doesn’t have to be a scary day now…Chips ahoy! Or…Good Luck!

Mmm…I want this cookbook, if only to see how they can possibly fill an entire cookbook with anything that ends up being better than the recipe on the back of the package of chocolate chips – that cookie is truly the the ne plus ultra of the cookie world.

I found your site via Tastespotting and followed the link because I read the name “Eleanor Klivans.” I’m interested in the idea that she has a whole cookbook on chocolate chip cookies because I have her “Big Fat Cookies” cookbook and it is excellent, but each of the chocolate chip cookie recipes I’ve tried have failed epically. I’d love to read more reviews you have of the recipes in this book (and get a chance to own another EK book, since I use “Big Fat Cookies” at least once or twice a week and my co-workers are quite thankful).
