We’re having our first ever cookie decorating competition – and our cookies are jumping for JOY!

If you just LOVE the holidays (like us), and you love a little competition, we invite you to try our first ever cookie decorating competition! It’s called #bestdressedcookie and it’s full of holiday spirit. It’s also easy as pie — we promise (because pie is a lot harder than this)!

Here’s your how to guide, PLUS we’ll be posting entries below. The winner will be chosen at the end of December and receive a $100 gift card!

2. Bake your heart out

3. Decorate like the creative cookie master you are!

Decorate, hang with your friends, have fun, and eat cookies!
