Drop In and Decorate

Tuesday, November 13, 2007

I just recently found out about a wonderful program created by Lydia of The Perfect Pantry. Drop In & Decorate Cookies for Donation was established by Lydia five years ago. The concept is simple. Bake cookies. Invite family and friends over to help decorate them. Then, donate the cookies to a local community charity, such as a food pantry, senior center or church group. It’s a great way to spend some quality time with people you care about and give a little back to your community as well. It sounds like a lot of fun, and a great way to introduce your kids to community service.

This year, the King Arthur Flour Company is partnering with Lydia to help promote Drop In and Decorate Cookies for Donation. Now, through November 15, they are offering a free dough scraper with every starter baking/decorating kit ordered to help those who would like to host their own DI&D event.

I am looking forward to hosting my own Drop In & Decorate party next month, and I hope some of you will consider it too.

For more information, visit Lydia’s web site, Nine Cooks.
