I’ve admired gingerbread houses for many years. They are amazing looking works of art, aren’t they? I know people that have made them and know how much time and work they require to create. Pepperidge Farms, maker of one of my favorite cookies (the Chocolate Enrobed Milano) is currently holding a Cookie House Sweepstakes and the prize is BIG! Here’s the announcement I got.
This holiday season, Pepperidge Farm will help more families experience the joy of time spent together at home and the pay off will be HUGE for one lucky baker!
Pepperidge Farm is inviting consumers to upload a cookie house photograph or personal holiday baking story for a chance to win a $10,000 gift card to a home improvement store for an enhancement project. For cookie house novices and experts alike, Pepperidge Farm developed an online video showing step-by-step directions for creating a classic cookie house complete with homemade icing. The video can be found at http://cookiehouse.pepperidgefarm.com. Now through December 31st, consumers are invited to go online and access the recipe featuring Pepperidge Farm® cookies, as well as share their own cookie house photograph or personal holiday baking story with others.
And in celebration of families making memories in homes of their own, Pepperidge Farm is proud to support Habitat for Humanity this holiday season by donating $50,000 to help eliminate poverty housing.
That’s a terrific prize! I’ve never made a cookie house but sure am thinking about trying my hand at one now. And I always love to see companies helping the community like Pepperidge Farms is supporting Habitat For Humanity.
For those of you entertaining during the holidays, Pepperidge Farms makes delicious cookies that are perfect for entertaining. The sugar cookies are so yummy. TJ thinks they’re great with hot cocoa. The gingerbread is tasty and perfect with a glass of milk. The Cinnamon Holiday Cookie Bites are tasty little morsels of cinnamon shortbread heaven. Keep a couple of packages in the kitchen for when guests stop over.
ONE winner will receive a prize pack of Pepperidge Farm Holiday Cookies similar to the one shown above.
