I’m a firm believer that the holidays are for relaxing and enjoying, not stressing and hurrying. If I can be stress-free and still have a plate full of a variety of Christmas Cookies to offer anyone who drops by this season, so can you – it all comes down to baking smarter, not harder. Becel’s Anything Goes Cookie Dough is an expert-tested recipe that results in soft chewy cookies every time and with endless add-ins, you might never make the same cookie twice.
Becel wants to know what your signature holiday cookie will be this year. For me, it’s these cheery Gumdrop & White Chocolate Cookies. Using Becel’s Anything Goes Cookie Dough along with 3/4 cups each of chopped gumdrops (no black ones… the taste is a bit too much for a cookie) and CHIPITS White Chocolate Chips, my creation is a mixture of many of my favourite holiday treats growing up. From today through Sunday December 13th, Becel will be drawing one winner each week to win a #BakingWithBecel baking prize pack valued at $625!
These baking prize packs include a 5.5 quart stand mixer, baking sheet and set of measuring cups and spoons from Cuisinart Canada, four packages of HERSHEY’S CHIPITS Baking Chips and product coupons from Burnbrae Farms (where available) and Becel!
To enter, you must post a photo of your Anything Goes Cookie Dough creation alongside a Becel tub to Instagram, Twitter, Facebook or Pinterest using the hashtags #BakingWithBecel and #contest and tagging Becel’s pages where appropriate. For full details, please visit the contest website.
Traditionally when we think of foods that contain good fats, we think of avocados, salmon, nuts and seeds. But it’s important to remember that soft, non-hydrogenated margarine, like Becel, made from a blend of plant oils is also part of the good fats family. Don’t get me wrong, cookies still aren’t a health food (yet, Santa’s still working on this wish), but no matter what you bake this holiday season, if you replace butter with Becel Buttery Taste margarine 1:1 in any recipe — it’ll be one of the easiest changes you’ve ever made, and it’s great for your heart healthy diet, too.
Soft, non-hydrogenated margarine, like Becel® Buttery Taste, contains 80 per cent less saturated fat than butter, and has zero trans-fat.
I can’t wait to see what you all come up with!
