Sweeeeet, now I wanna know how to make em!! LOL. I think I would find out if sending it in makes it their property instead of yours. I say if they wanna have you on the show making them, you insist that they stay your property.
Why should they turn around and profit from yours and your mothers hard work instead of you?
Congrats on making the top 10!

Fantastic! You must feel 10 feet tall!

can you post the recipe for us, or is it now securely in their possession?

....And that's why I think Miss Calya should maintain her rights (ownership) to the recipe

Congratulations!

I believe she already owns the copyright to the recipe. The old send it to yourself in the mail thing is a myth, does not hold up in law. However, just the fact of publishing it with her name on it constitutes ownership.

DW writes a little music from time to time...her attorney always has her to mail the original manuscript to herself prior to mailing it to a potential publisher...I, not being an attorney only follow the advice for which I am paying...Is it necessary?? I dunno!

not sure where you got that information, but I doubt its veracity. You have to apply for copyright.

Thanks everyone! I am looking at where everyone can get the cookie molds. So far not much luck. Without the cookie mold, the recipe is no good, because that's how they get their shape. I will post once I find out where the molds can be purchased.

My Mom and MIL have some that they bought while on vacation in Asia, so I'm sure they can be found somewhere.

Calya, I just saw your cookies on Martha. She said something about them looking like they came out of a professional/commerial bakery/kitchen. I guess that was a good thing.
I thought they looked professional, where the others looked cute. They all looked good. GOT MILK?

CONGRATS, again!
