# Baking Bonanza Giveaway

2,803Just two weeks ‘til Christmas, and we’re in the middle of holiday baking. Of course we’ve got all the special cookies that appear only at Christmas, but we’re also making a variety of yeast breads, pies, and candies as part of the celebration.

And while we’re on the topic of baking, we’d like to add a little extra Christmas cheer to one lucky winner’s day. We’re giving away a holiday baking bonanza, featuring 9- and 7-inch pie pans by Chantal. Chantal’s exceptionally strong, non-porous glaze won’t react with foods or flavors, and you can slice and serve directly from the dish without worrying about scratches. Crafted to ensure excellent heat distribution, this pie dish promotes even baking, cleans easily in the dishwasher, and is oven, microwave, and freezer safe.

The rest of the giveaway is just icing on the cake, to continue the baking theme (and we love icing!): Tevolo silicone cupcake molds, a Zak Designs heart-shaped nesting bowl set, LoofahArt Christmas tree kitchen scrubber, William Bounds silicone cookie turner, Nordicware 8 shapes in 1 cookie cutter, Now Designs Christmas tea towel set of 2, RSVP green silicone spoon, Now Designs red mitt, Fox Run gingerbread spatula, RSVP stainless steel 6-qt. mixing bowl, and a Chicago metallic gingerbread man mold.

(Chantal and the other manufacturers don’t know we’re giving away these items.)

I make pans of cinnamon rolls to give to all my employees (about 20 in all), I make simple cookies and candies to give to neighbors and close friends. I love cooking, but have very little patience when it comes to baking…so the easier the better, but people are always telling me I bake the best desserts. Little do they know that most of them start with a mix! I am getting more into bread baking, if I start it in the bread maker! With a cool baking kit like that, I could experiment more!
