The pictures you are about to view are TERRIBLE in quality. I repeat, TERRIBLE. If you are prone to judging half descent pictures, laughing hysterically at the lameness, and/or sitting in pure disgust and disbelief that someone would even think to publish pictures of this quality...then please discontinue your viewing of this blog post! :)
A while back...hmmm maybe a month or two ago I randomly saw on Susie Cake's Facebook page about a tiny contest they were having. Being their 5th birthday, they decided to have a "5 Ingredient Dessert Recipe Challenge". All one had to do was look through their very own recipes and submit their best dessert which, of course, had to be 5 ingredients or less. "Sure! I think I've got a few..." I thought to myself.
As I browsed through my database of all my own recipes, I found two which I sat deciding which to send- a delicious fudge recipe and my favorite Vanilla Bean Shortbread Cookie recipe. After much thought, I figured the shortbread was more "Susie's" style...so that was the one I submitted. Then I forgot all about it.
Fast forward a few weeks, I again was doing some business on our Facebook page when out I read "Congrats to Christina M for her delicious Vanilla Bean Shortbread recipe!"...I was seriously in disbelief. To be honest...I am not one of those lucky people that win practically anything and everything they enter into. To be even more honest, I rarely enter contests at all! I don't know why I entered this one...and I surely am shocked I won.
You may remember a little post I did around Christmas time about my cookies...
They were darn good!!! A little thinner than I usually make mine, but the flavor was right on!

Oh! And thanks to Susie...I will be getting my birthday cake for a little upcoming celebration, for FREE! Wooohooooo!!! :D
Happy Friday everyone!
