If St Nick’s suit is always a bit snug because you bake the best spritz, snickerdoodles, sugar, or other Santalicious-flavored cookies, don’t miss Seehafer Ace Hardware’s annual Christmas Cookie Contest. Drop your cookies at the store on Morningside Drive on Saturday, December 16, between 9:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. and you might bag a fabulous prize.
First prize wins a Kitchen Aid stand mixer. Second prize wins a Kitchen Aid hand mixer. Third prize wins a Nordic Ware professional two-piece covered bakeware set.
Entry is free and only six cookies are required, but owner Kristi Seehafer says, “Bring more as all the leftover cookies are donated to the local nursing homes for the residents.”
Judging is by a blind taste test, and bakers need not be present to win. Last year, nearly 40 entries were submitted. Kristi says, “We hope to get even more this year!”
