Every year I have a list of must-make holiday cookie recipes, including Peanut Blossoms, Pretzel Kiss Candies, something with ginger, as well as several others. It’s always fun to add new recipes to the mix, and that is where the genius idea of a Cookie Exchange is great. You get the benefit of trying several new recipes without a) having to do all that work and b) the risk of making several dozen of something that you wished turned out differently (or sadly wished you never made!).
This holiday season, I had the privilege of hosting a Cookie Exchange, courtesy of GLAD, to help raise awareness for the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer campaign. And I was GLAD to be a good cookie!
Cookies for Kids’ Cancer is a non-profit organization founded by parents inspired by their young son’s fight against cancer. Pediatric cancer is the number one cause of death by disease of children in the United States, due in large part to the need for funding research into new and improved therapies. It is unthinkable, yet according to the National Childhood Cancer Foundation, one in every four elementary schools has a child with cancer. While many children are cured, there are still many children who will not survive.
In the spirit of holiday giving and in being a good cookie, I made a personal donation to the Cookies for Kids’ Cancer program. I have also created a Cookies for Kids’ Cancer Donation Page so that you too can be a good cookie and help fight pediatric cancer!
Thanks to GLAD, you can also join in the some fun by exchanging a virtual cookie with a friend at www.glad.com/Glad-Cookie-
As far as my Cookie Exchange, I am very excited that GLAD is generously donating $1 per cookie that was exchanged. How awesome is that! There were several dozens of cookies sampled and packaged, recipes printed and exchanged. As a result, I have many recipes to share with you!
I have partnered with The Glad Products Company through DailyBuzz to help promote their Food Storage products. I have been compensated for my time commitment to work with this product. However, my opinions are entirely my own and I have not been paid to publish positive comments. Thank you GLAD!
