Win a Sourpuss cookie jar; visit Cupcake Rehab

 Check out the blog Cupcake Rehab you'll find a couple Sourpuss reviews and a chance to win a cupcake cookie jar...

see below for the review;
I have a kind of obsession with cupcake cookie jars. I love all cookie jars, actually, and one of my favorites- not to mention my pride & joy in this particular arena- is a vintage 1930′s Minnie/Mickey Mouse one that belonged to my great grandmother Mary (whom I’m named for, kinda sorta). But I really love ones shaped like cupcakes, for obvious reasons. I’ve got four so far: one pink & blue, one black/orange/white for Halloween, one that’s all patriotic & red/white/blue and then this, my newest addition from Sourpuss Clothing.
So… you wanna see my new addition?
HOW CUTE IS THAT. Adorable. I’ve been lusting over a cupcake cookie jar with a skull on top forever now! And one that isn’t in Halloween colors. That’s kinda hard to find, ’cause for some strange reason people associate skulls just with Halloween. Weird. Oh, and you see those super cute little pink gingham cupcake towels underneath it? Yeah, I got those too. And an apron to match! CCO. Crazy cuteness overload.
Me & Sourpuss Clothing go back a long way, back to when Cupcake Rehab was just a baby blog. They have the most unique housewares for the most unique homebodies among us. I love them. So much so, in fact, that in addition to a Cupcake Rehab sticker, Lola actually sports a Sourpuss sticker too!

Hit the Break for more photos, a recipe and your chance to win!!

So yeah, they’re pretty freakin’ awesome. And they sent me this awesome cookie jar. And when I get a new cookie jar, it makes me want to make cookies to fill it with. And what cookies would I fill it with but pink cookies!? And what’s better than cookies with M&M’s? And how about if they’re coconut M&M’s? Pretty much makes them automatically awesome. Yep, I braved the high humidity & to make cookies just to fill my new cookie jar. I’m kinda insane. But you knew that.

Now, you probably don’t need another cookie recipe (but I’m gonna give you one anyway). Come on. THEY’RE PINK.
2 cups unsifted all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ cup solid vegetable shortening
¼ cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
½ cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 egg whites
a dash of Wilton Rose or Christmas Red food coloring gel, or another color if desired
1 small bag coconut M&M’s (for these I only used the white & brown colored ones) or regular M&M’s, or chocolate chips, or white chocolate chips… or whatever the hell you want!
Preheat oven to 350° F degrees. Prepare baking sheets by covering them with parchment.
Combine flour, salt and baking soda in a medium bowl.
Beat together shortening, sugars and vanilla in a seperate, larger bowl until creamy. Add egg whites, beating until light and fluffy. Gradually beat in flour mixture. Add food coloring, mix until combined. Adjust until you get the desired color. Stir in M&M’s.
Drop batter by well-rounded teaspoonful on to greased baking sheets. Add more M&M’s on top, if desired.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until golden on the bottoms & puffy. Cool cookies on sheets on wire rack for 2 minutes. Remove cookies to wire rack to cool completely.
Side note: striped paper straws make everything, including milk, taste better. True story. Thanks Yoyo for sending me a bunch, I love them.

So maybe you didn’t need that cookie recipe.
What you do need, however, is that cookie jar. Amirite? You totally, 100%, without a shadow of a doubt need that cookie jar in your life. And I want to give it to you. I really do. ‘Cause I’m nice like that. And Sourpuss Clothing is nice, too, which is why they’re making it possible that one of you lucky dogs out there will in fact end up with a cookie jar.

You will not, sadly, get the cookies too. Those you have to make yourself. So… what do you have to do to get this cookie jar?
  • First, and most important, you have to tell me something: if you were to win this cookie jar, would you like it in aqua or pink? And why? ‘Cause it matches your mixer? Your kitchen? It’s your favorite color? Do tell.
  • Finally… tell everyone in your social network about it! Copy and paste the following into a tweet or post it on your Facebook page for an extra entry (then come back & let me know)-
I just entered to win a cupcake cookie jar from @SourpussBrand at @CupcakeRehab! And guess what? You can too: http://cupcakerehab.com/2012/06/cookie-jars-pink-cookies-and-a-giveaway

This contest has, unfortunately, ended! Congrats to the contest winner: Sarah Przybylski: We hope you enjoy the cookie jar!


  1. I want it in Aqua! Mostly because next to purple Aqua is the most amazing color. Oh yeah, and my funky kitchen is done up in red, black and aqua! Im a cupcake AND skull junkie!!! I NEED THIS! srzoller@hotmail.com

  2. And im awesome and reposted this giveawy on Facebook!

  3. I would love to win the pink skull cookie jar. It would stand out and become the center point of the kitchen because it does not match a thing. It will be the automatic convo starter when I have family gatherings. I posted the message from above telling everyone that I entered the contest before I came and left this message. If I win, my email is jabound@gmail.com. This contest rocks!

  4. I would love to win the aqua skull cookie jar to fill with yummy vegan cookies! Right now the color scheme in my kitchen is red (which aqua goes beautifully with) and is full of unique and fun baking gadgets and decor so I think that this cookie jar would be a beautiful addition :)

  5. The two are really beautiful, but if I win (hehe), I will choose the pink one. My kitchen is ivory & orange, but the walls have small drawings in green, blue and pink. It's very (well, too much) formal, and a cookie jar topped with a skull, probably could mark it as MY kitchen... ;-)

    I'm going tu share the givaway in my wall, just when I have send this text to you (if I'm gramatically incorrect, I'm sorry, english it's not my language)

  6. Done!!:


  7. I'd definitely want the aqua cookie jar. My husband and I are finally buying a house and my kitchen is going to be pink. I think the aqua cookie jar would be a cute little accent piece to my kitchen. :-D

  8. Aaaaand done! Https://m.facebook.com/crystal.v.hinton?id=1185382091&_rdr
