Get Free Cookie Mix For A Drop In & Decorate Party!

A couple years ago we wrote about a great cause called Drop In & Decorate where bakers and non-bakers alike get together to decorate cookies for donation. Already in its eighth year, this tax-exempt nonprofit organization founded by food writer Lydia Walshin of The Perfect Pantry is still going strong. And this year, they have added an extra incentive!

But who better to tell you about the event than the founder herself? Take it away Lydia…

The idea behind Drop In & Decorate is simple: bake some cookies; gather a group of family, friends, neighbors, co-workers, your worship group or book group to decorate the cookies together; donate the cookies to a nonprofit agency serving basic human needs in your own community. It’s a simple idea in a complicated world, and  something anyone can do.

If you’d like to host your own Drop In & Decorate® event, Pillsbury and Wilton would like to help. Pillsbury has donated 50 VIP coupons, worth $3.00 each, off any Pillsbury product — including sugar cookie mix, icing and flour — to be distributed, first come, first served, while supply lasts, to anyone who plans to host a Drop In & Decorate event (max. 5 coupons per person). And we’ll include a Comfort Grip cookie cutter, donated by Wilton, while supplies last.

Write to lydia AT ninecooks DOT com for more info on how to get your free coupons and cookie cutters.

That’s great! And with National Cookie Day coming up on December 4th, there is almost no reason not to host one of these great parties! Should supplies be limited, here are some cookie recipes to make from scratch. Keep in mind all the ingredients you buy are tax exempt if you donate your cookies!

    Thank you so much for helping to spread the word about Drop In & Decorate. Wouldn’t it be fun if one of your readers decorated and donated the 10,000th cookie sometime this month?!

    As a long time Drop In & Decorate participant, I can tell you it’s fun and rewarding. Cookies build community! Yeah!

    I just had a Drop In party for my birthday – we did over 250 cookies for a local food pantry. This will be my 4th year doing a Drop In at work. Staff and clients in a brain injury rehab. program love it. Last year we had extra cookies after our planned donation, so I took them to Curves and sold them, then donated the money to a local food pantry.
