August 2021 Baking Challenge
Last month for the July Baking Challenge we made Homemade Ice Cream.
Thanks so much to everyone who joined in. I loved seeing the creative ice cream flavors everyone made from cookie butter to strawberry cheesecake to mint chocolate chip!
Once winners are randomly drawn and then personally confirmed, they’ll be announced on the blog and on social media, as always. Each winner has 48 hours to respond before we re-pick a winner, so it sometimes can take a few days to announce.
Without further ado, I am super excited to share AUGUST’S Baking Challenge recipe pick.
This month we’ll be baking…
Thick, chewy, and soft, these oatmeal cookies are bursting with ooey gooey chocolate goodness that everyone will love. They’re ready in just 30 minutes and make the perfect back-to-school treat! Lots of customization ideas are listed on the challenge landing page.
