National Homemade Cookie Day - Cookie Exchange Party!

When: Oct 1, 2019
10:00 am
Where: Ann's By Design
We are calling all pro and amateur bakers to conjure up your best cookie recipe and join us in celebrating a very sweet day! October 1 is National Homemade Cookie Day, and to celebrate we will be hosting a homemade Cookie Exchange Party and Cookie Tasting Contest! Why? Because sometimes we all just need an excuse to get together, laugh, and eat cookies!

Our Cookie Exchange Party will allow those who bring in at least 2 dozen cookies to pick out some of the other cookies on display to taste test or take home. This dual event also features a Cookie Tasting Contest, judged by our own cookie-tasting experts (Phil + a secret guest judge!) as well as a People's Choice secret ballot. The contest will feature 2 winners, Judge's Choice and People's Choice, and each winner will receive a $10 gift card!

If you're shy or don't feel comfortable having your cookies judged, don't worry - the cookie exchange is just for fun and you don't have to be in the contest to participate!

Not a baker? No problem! There will be plenty of cookies to go around and you can vote for your favorite cookie while also enjoying coffee, hot cocoa, or apple cider at one of our round tables.

If you would like to join our Cookie Exchange Party, please let us know what type of cookies you would like to bring, how many (at least 2 dozen of each kind) and whether you would like to enter the contest or just be part of the exchange, then bring your cookies to the shop no later than 10am on October 1. Judging will occur throughout the day and the winners will be announced at 5pm after the people's choice ballots have been counted.

Register for the exchange or contest by emailing, or calling the shop at 517-438-8459. You can also fill out our Cookie Party Signup Form online.

Save the date and join us on Tuesday, October 1 from 10am to 5pm for National Homemade Cookie Day!
