Drop in & Decorate: Cookies for Donation

November 4, 2007 | Filed Under Announcements, Baking, Cookies, Decorated Cookies, Donation, Drop in & Decorate 

Lydia of The Perfect Pantry has started a wonderful holiday event.  It’s called Drop In & Decorate:  Cookies for Donation.  It’s an easy and fun event.  All you do is bake some cookies, invite friends or family (or co-workers or neighbors) to drop by and help decorate.  Then donate your cookies to a local food pantry, emergency shelter, senior center, lunch program, or other group serving people in difficult circumstances during the holiday season. 

Isn’t that a wonderful idea?  I think so.   In Lydia’s words, "It’s a wonderful way to give back, to spend time with friends and family without spending gobs of money on gifts, to give the gift of your time and creativity to brighten someone else’s holiday."

Another cool thing about this party is that King Arthur Flour  is joining in on the fun and will sell Drop In & Decorate baking kits from now till November 15.  If you buy the kit within that time, they will offer a free dough scraper with each order.  Add the kit to your shopping cart. On the payment page, enter Promotion Code "Dropin" to the Promotion field and click the Update button. The page will refresh and the dough scraper will be added to your order. Offer valid through November 15 only (but the kit is on sale until December 26, and would make a great holiday gift).

You can read more about Lydia’s event and how to host your own cookie decorating party here  at ninecooks.com. 

Way to go, Lydia!  Way to go!

  1. Paz, thank you so much for helping to spread the word about this wonderful cookies-for-donation project. I love your Paz cookie, too! xoxo

  2. My pleasure, Lydia. What a wonderful idea you have. Yeah, I love my ‘Paz’ cookie. 😀


  3. Hello Paz, 😛

    Thank you for the comment on my new post and for linking me to your food blog. I find it wonderful, Paz.

    The heart with your name in turqouise looks lovely and delicious. Have you eaten it or was it for sale?


  4. Hi Olivia: Welcome! My pleasure to link your blog, I’m enjoying it. 😉 Mari made the cookie for me a long time ago. I ate it many months agoo. It was good. 😀


  5. I just found your blog through WHB and I’m glad I did! What a great idea, this cookies for donation project. Another cool way to help the hungry this holiday is to check out Generous Pour (www.generouspour.com), a joint project between Clos du Bois wines and Share Our Strength. The site has chef recipes, entertaining tips, wine pairing, invite templates, etc. to host a “generous gathering” with your friends to benefit Share Our Strength. Clos du Bois will also donate $1 to Share Our Strength every time someone download’s Corinne Bailey Rae’s song, Like a Star, from the site. Check it out!

  6. Hi Swirlingnotions: Welcome! Thanks for the link to generous pour. I’ll stop by.


  7. I love this idea. I am going to see if I can organize this event at my synagogue! Thanks for the idea!!! 😆

  8. Hi Kelly: That’s great you’re thinking of participating. I think your group will have lots of fun.


  9. Great idea, Paz. Thanks for passing it on. Simona and I are going to get together and decorate cookies for our area. Wish you could come out and join us!

  10. Thanks Paz for spreading the word! As Christine said, we are going to do it and I think our significant others will also be involved, one way or another. However, I am sure I won’t be able to make anything like the beauties I see on the photos.

  11. Hi Christine: What fun you’ll have, I’m sure. I wish I could come out and join you, too.

    Hi Simona: That’s wonderful your hubbies will participate, too. I know all your cookies will be just as special as the ones below. 😀


    P.S. Take some pics for me.
