A Give Away and a Good Cause

I've been working on making a gluten-free version of Great-Grandma's sugar cookies.  Since that's not ready for prime time, I've got something else for you.

The good folks at Oxo sent me two of their new "Be A Good Cookie" spatulas, free of charge.  One to test-drive so I could share my observations with you, and one to give away.
Now, I had spotted a version of this spatula in the store and contemplated it, but I just wasn't sure how I would like it.  As it turns out - I like it.  The spatula is a little small, but that makes it work well for getting in between crowded cookies on a cookie sheet.  Especially when I'm getting impatient and putting LOTS of cookies on a sheet.  The silicone coating comes to quite a thin bevel around the edges:
This makes it ideal for getting under cookies.  And the silicone coating makes it excellent for manipulating gluten-free cookies - which can be especially delicate.  The metal blade is flexible, making it maneuverable in tight places.  I recommend it!

So - if you'd like me to share the other spatula with YOU - leave me a comment here on the blog before 11:59 Saturday EST.  I'll choose a random numbered comment and contact the winner (so make sure you include some way for me to contact you!) on Sunday.  That's it.  I'm going to make it easy on you.

But wait, there's more!  These spatulas have a purpose.  OXO is donating a portion of the proceeds from sales to Cookies for Kids' Cancer - founded by two OXO employees inspired by their son's battle with pediatric cancer.

However, if you want to purchase one of these cute little spatulas (or two!  Maybe three, if your holiday shopping list includes other bakers), go visit your nearest Bed, Bath and Beyond or www.amazon.com, or check out OXO's Good Cookies website.  They even have information about other ways to help from sending a Virtual Cookie to holding a fundraiser Bake Sale.

While there won't be extra entries (cause I want to make this easy for you), I'd be delighted if you were to follow me on Twitter, or like the Gluten Free Goes Vintage page on Facebook.  Please also feel free to share this post and help me spread the word about Cookies for Cancer!

And I promise, more Christmas Cookies later!

ETA:  OK, apparently everybody is out shopping this weekend.  So I'm going to extend the deadline to 11:59 PM EST on Tuesday. :-)

And we have a winner:
(I even used a random number generator - I think I nearly broke it. ;-)
Annys, the spatula is yours!  Contact me with your mailing address and I'll send it out!

  2. Count us in, please! (It'll really be funny for Ian to rub it in on Alesone that we got a cool spatula from you.)
