Friday Giveaway – Trader Joe’s Cookie Butter

With a book deadline quickly approaching, we are going to try doing something a little different on Fridays to give us more time to write and create recipes for We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook the book. We’re still experimenting, but for now it will vary from week to week, from a featured guest blogger, to an all picture post, to an oldie-but-goodie recipe, to giveaways of books or our favorite foodie items like today’s giveaway.

Like creamy spreadable gingerbread. You’ve gotta try this stuff!

Yesterday, I (Rachel), shared a recipe for Pumpkin Cookie Butter Cookies, using Trader Joe’s cookie butter, a peanut-butter like spread that tastes kind of like gingerbread. Since Trader Joe’s isn’t available everywhere, I thought it might not be fair to rave about a product that some of you can’t get your hands on. My mom & lovely co-blogger just so happens to be heading to Portland tomorrow and is going to pick up a jar to give to one lucky blog reader.

You can enter up to three times by doing one or more of the entries below. Please leave a separate comment for each entry.  We’ll use a random number generator to pick the winner on Sunday at 9pm CST and will announce the winner on Monday.

1) *Required Entry* Leave a comment letting us know one recipe you’ve either tried from our blog, want to try, or just wish we would show up at your doorstep with it already made for you. Refresh your memory at our recipe page.

2) *Optional Entry* Like the We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook Facebook page. (Leave a comment on our blog to let us know you “like us on facebook.” You don’t have to be a new fan for this entry to count.)

3) *Optional Entry* Follow We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook on Twitter. (Leave a comment on our blog to let us know you “follow us on twitter.”)

NOTE: Trader Joe’s in no way sponsored this post or giveway. We simply like this product, paid for it ourselves, and want to share it with you. However, if Trader Joe’s wants to ship us a case to giveaway to our readers, we’d be open to negotiations!

    Hi girls! I am vieing for that free jar of Cookie Butter…. my story is I have made the “Better Than Restaurant Chicken Tenders” and they were a big hit! I will definitely make them again!

Here’s to HUGE successes to our fav “We Laugh, We Cry, We Cook” girls!! ♥ 😀

    LOVE the recipes, the blog and those who have created it.

    I loved Better-than-Restaurant Chicken Tenders and Veggie Sour Cream Chicken Enchiladas (He ate every bit so I didn’t tell Terry he was eating a veggie version of his favorite Tex-Mex food – I think I’ll save that for next time I make them).

    I’m making Vegan Ranch Dressing this afternoon. I do menus for each month a month at a time. As I make out my August menu I find myself putting more and more of your recipes on it.

    I am already a blog follower and a Twitter follower as well so the optional entries are covered. 😉

    Required entry:

    I have tried many of your recipes but my all time favorite that I make at least once a month are your frozen apricot bars. They are my go to cookie when I need something sweet.

    Love the blog and am so proud of you both!

  4. TracyMichele says:

    Mac-N-Cashew Cheese! Mac-N-Cashew Cheese!! It is one of my favorites. Although I have also enjoyed your cashew con queso and there was a spaghetti squash recipe with a tomato based sauce – can’t remember the name if the recipe – that I loved. Haven’t yet tried anything on here I didn’t like! So next time one (or both) of you find yourselves in Nashville, feel free to show up on my doorstep with any of your vegan recipes!

  5. Christina Newell says:

    Fun! I’ve yet to try the cashew cheese sauce, That and just about everything else you ladies post would be greeted with mouths wide open if it were to arrive at my door. Of all the things Ive made, I gotta say the no bake apricot bars are a favorite, also a fan of making them in the muffin tin

  6. Christina Newell says:

    Because love isn’t an option, I like you on Facebook!

  7. alw6ys says:

    mmm, I’d definitely wish for the Chicken Tortilla Soup to show up at my door 😉

  8. Wen says:

    I wouldn’t mind trying the Chocolate Coconut Almond Cake. Looks like it will help with the lactose intolerance.

  9. Maureen says:

    The no bake apricot bars sound like something that would go fast in my house.

  10. nik says:

    I’d love to have your Marinated Portobello Burger! I’ve never tried one with apple cider vinegar but this looks delish!

  11. Becky Johnson says:

    I just returned from Portland with the coveted Cookie Butter in suitcase. Rach is right, it is nothing like you’ve ever tasted. I’ve had it on a banana and last night, a little on Blue Bell vanilla ice cream and of course, just licked a spoon of it plain. Amazing stuff!

  12. […] of all, a little giveaway business to take care of. The winner of Friday’s Cookie Butter Giveaway is Wen. (I swear we used a random number generator, but have to admit, there is a nice ring to Wen […]
