Such a fun idea!
I have a complete repertoire of lovely adorable cookies I bake every year for Christmas. It is not the season to be posting them again on my site. DARN! I will have to think of a summer Christmas cookie. If I could just submit photos of each of my cookies, I would win. Hands down. (modest, eh?)
I have til September, so there is time to put my money where my mouth is… I already have an idea.

Do the posts have to be dated within the contest time frame, or can we submit cookies we’ve posted in the past?

What fun! I was just telling my boyfriend I wanted to do some taste testing of Christmas cookies while he is away next week. I love the thought of experiencing Christmas in the summer, it’s my favourite time of year! 🙂


My submission for the EIEO “Christmas in July Cookie Contest 2012” is these oh so cute Melting Snowman Cookies featuring the Melting Snowmen Duo. Melting Snowman…now how perfect is that for Christmas in July? The Sugar Cookie Recipe I’ve included in my post is Gluten Free with allergy friendly options but you could use your favourite Sugar Cookie Recipe, or even use a boxed mix if you’re short on time. Please let me know if a more recent post is necessary cause I would happily make these sweet little fellows again 🙂


Just to clarify – you can submit an older post. It will be new to us! I can’t wait to see all the delicious entries.

My Christmas in July Cookie Contest entry is these honey-sweetened Whole Wheat Honey Cookies – The ice cream sandwiches are perfect for our hot July and the rest are perfect for eating or gifting during the holidays!

Since you said that we can enter as many cookies as we like, I am going to start with my Rosemary and Lemon Tree Cookies from last Christmas. They are awesome cookies to serve with tea and I loved my idea to make large triangles and attach small angels to the top with icing. I thought they looked really special. I will start baking some more new recipes for Christmas cookies to share soon too!

Sarah Reynolds

I made this recipe specifically for this contest. It’s a yummy Snickerdoodle recipe that you can use as a base recipe to make my newly created Sugar Plum Cookies and Partridge in a Pear Tree Cookies. My Sugar Plum Cookies are a perfect combination of sweet and tart and my Partridge in a Pear Tree Cookies are like easy mini pear pies. I love how easy it is to bake a lovely selection of cookies and only use one bowl of cookie dough.


My second submission for the EIEO “Christmas in July Cookie Contest 2012″ = Colourful (GF) Swirl Cookies

Love seeing the other submissions…some talented bakers!

Woah. I completely forgot that today was the last day for entries.

I have a couple of older posts –

These very Christmassy Chocolate Orange Canada Cornstarch Shortbread Cookies (a bit of a mouthful name… but perfect delicious bites :))

My second ones are these ‘Spirit Bear’ Buttermilk Sugar Cookies, a Christmas classic from my family.
