Homemade Oreos: Will Bake for Food
This will come as no surprise – I love to bake. The act of baking is meditative and relaxing for me, it centers me, and if I haven’t baked in a while then I tend to feel a bit unbalanced. All is well in my world when flour is flying and butter is softening!
Even more special than baking, though, is sharing the goodies with my family, friends and anyone who appreciates a homemade treat.
So when I learned about the Will Bake for Food bake sale I was excited to join in. I get to bake and share for a good cause. On Saturday, November 12th, a group of Seattle food bloggers will be baking up sweet delights for the community – you! – so come by and indulge.
Please bring either non-perishable food items or money to exchange for baked goods. I promise you will not be disappointed! All the proceeds and food donations will benefit Seattle’s Emergency Feeding Program.
I’ll even tell you what I’m baking ... homemade Oreos! Buttery, chocolate cookie sandwiches with a creamy filling – this childhood favorite never looked so good. When I discovered Joanne Chang’s recipe for these nostalgic cookies, they sounded fun and decadent.
Sam and Isaac were happy to assist with quality control and packaging. I can’t wait to share them on Saturday! (I just hope we don’t sneak too many before then.)
This event was a hit last year and sold out within the first 90 minutes. Please come early and bring your sweet tooth. I hope to see you there!
