Reminder: Cookies Across America this Saturday!

I wanted to remind y'all that Cookies Across America is this Saturday, December 10. It's a day for families across our country to hold cookie exchanges, or just bake cookies on your own to share with others in your community!  Wrap them up and drop them off with someone you know who may be having a tough time financially this year, or perhaps an elderly neighbor or relative.  That plate of cookies will bring so much happiness!

Another option is to either buy or collect baking ingredients to donate to a local church or community food pantry so those who can't afford to bake this year, will have the opportunity to do so. (I stocked up on Nestle Chocolate Chips, brown sugar and Crisco baking spray to donate to our local church food pantry!)  Can you imagine not being able to afford the ingredients to bake with your kiddos? I know many families have super-tight budgets, and buying extras like cookie ingredients just isn't an option this time of year.  Consider buying an extra of each ingredient for your favorite cookie when you shop today or tomorrow, and then drop them off at a food bank or pantry ~ you will be a blessing to someone!

Here's another really yummy cookie recipe to try - it's another one that would be great to share with others!  Don't they look delicious?!  Nothing better than dark chocolate, ooey-gooey cookies!

Once you decide how many cookies you can make to share, like the Cookies Across America facebook page, and fill out the pledge widget (under the Learn More tab).
Let's all try and make the holidays a little brighter for those less fortunate in our communities ~ a simple gift of homemade cookies will help lift their spirits and fill their tummies, too! Hope you all are able to participate!

Disclosure: As a Taste of Home Power Panel member, I received a package from Nestle containing an apron and coupons for free Nestle products to try these recipes and share information about Cookies Across America. No monetary compensation was received.
