Hi all!
I know you are all wondering what this is all about (at least I hope).
"Drop in & Decorate" is a nonprofit organization started by Lydia Walshin with The Perfect Pantry, a food blog.

The idea behind Drop In & Decorate is simple: bake some cookies; gather a group of family, friends, or co-workers, to decorate the cookies together; donate the cookies to a nonprofit agency serving basic human needs in your own community.
Now, here's my idea...
The Ronald McDonald House just opened up at CHP, the facility is absolutely amazing, they have a huge kitchen, and most importantly..... they are absolutely excited to have us there!

My goal is 120 cookies for the 60 families living at the RMHouse now. But I just dont have that many baking sheets and creative juice. So.... I NEED YOUR HELP!

On Dec. 12 at 12pm. we'll be there, blasting music, put on our creative hats, decorate cookies like crazy (maybe eat some too), and just have fun! Staff member at the RMHouse are also welcomed to join the fun and and boogie with us.

** the cookies do need to dry overnight, so I will be there the next day to put them in individual baggies for families to pick them up.

Are you guys as excited as I am?? Just drop by for as long as your heart desires, 30 mins or the whole event. Just come prepared to have some fun.

How can you help? Many ways!
1) Come join us!
2) if you feel like baking or your spouse/significant other likes to bake, bake a batch of sugar cookies (or butter cookies) and bring them to the party so we can decorate them
    - I have a simple sugar cookie recipe if you need one, just ask me
   - the bigger and thicker the cookies, the better! more room for creativity
3) bring sandwich bags for packaging later
4) bring icing/decorating stuff like icing pipes, sprinkles, beads, etc.
5) if baking is not your thing, come anyway! I'll need your help in decorating!

Who's ready for the fun?
Like Lydia says, "Cookies make people smile, and bring a bit of happiness to people in difficult circumstances."
