Holiday M & M Cookies and the Food Lion Holiday Bake-Off

Pin It
The holidays are coming!  Are you ready?

When I was younger I loved baking cookies for the holidays and I still do today.
A tin of cookies or a loaf of freshly baked bread is the perfect gift to show friends, family and neighbors how much they mean to you. 

The M & M cookies below are one of the first cookies I learned how to bake as a girl and they are still one of my holiday favorites.

Do you enjoy baking?

Food Lion is launching a Holiday Bake Off recipe contest on their Facebook page.
You can enter the contest by sharing a recipe in any of the four categories: appetizer, entre, side dish, or dessert. 12 grand prize winners will receive a $500 Food Lion gift card! 
Wouldn't that be nice!

The Food Lion Bake Off contest kicked off on 11/7/12 and will end 11/28/12.
Visit the Food Lion Facebook page to enter.
Hurry - the contest ends November 28th.
Good luck!
