Baking Spirits Bright


Our 2022 Holiday Cookie is the result of a spirited baking competition. This year’s winner, Michele Stutzman, created this marvelously tasty chocolate peppermint sandwich cookie.

Across the region, 800 volunteer bakers, using the same recipe, have mixed, baked, and packaged this holiday cheer, expressly for you.

The ingredients are listed on the label (as well as below) and should accurately represent the cookie. However, if you have specific allergies or concerns, please proceed cautiously. These cookies are not made in a commercial facility. They are made with heart in home kitchens.

May you find joy and peace in the spirit of the season.
