Bake Sweet Memories – Giveaway (CLOSED)

Bake Your Holidays Merry Logo

Thinking back over the chaos of the past couple of weeks, there are a few memories that stand out. Decorating our tree, the first we’ve had in years, the excitement of my kids on Christmas morning and baking cookies with my oldest son. For the past two years I’ve been hoping to have an actual cookie exchange or some sort of holiday open house and then been swept up in the season without it ever happening. I’ve been browsing the recipes and tips at the Bake Sweet Memories website, is it too early to start planning for next year?

Luckily fresh-baked goodies never go out of season. Valentine’s Day is right around the corner! I’m a mostly from scratch baker these days, but I’ll let you in on a little secret. When the focus is on the decorating, and my kid really does love spending an afternoon with sprinkles and frosting, I save time by using Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix. They are so simple to prepare, and we have cookies ready for decorating in no time.

How about another little secret? Here’s how I manage to bake so much and still fit into my jeans. Bake up the goodies, enjoy the aroma and a sample or two, then pack the treats up into GladWare containers and send them to work with my husband or home with friends.


One lucky winner will receive a Happy Holiday Treats prize pack, including a packages of Betty Crocker Sugar Cookie Mix, a GladWare sample pack and a $25 Safeway gift card (also valid at Dominick’s, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Vons, and Genuardi’s.

This giveaway is now closed. Congratulations to the winner, madwoman-doing-cartwheels!
