Calling all bakers! Do your friends and family beg you each year to bake up a batch of your signature holiday cookies? Well, Marcus Restaurants wants to sample them, too!
Marcus Hotels & Resorts is asking the public to share their best cookie recipes during its 4th Annual Milwaukee’s Favorite Cookie Contest. Now through Monday, Dec. 10, 2012, at 11:59 p.m., the public is invited to submit their favorite cookie recipe by going online to the Marcus Restaurants Facebook page, www.Facebook.com/marcusrestaurants, clicking on the tab labeled “Cookie Contest” and entering to win. Marcus Restaurants’ culinary experts will sift through the entries, considering overall impression, uniqueness, creativity, and consumer appeal, and crown one recipe as Milwaukee’s Favorite Cookie 2012.
The winning baker will receive a special one-on-one baking lesson with Pfister Pastry Chef Jennifer Carlson, an overnight hotel stay and dinner for two at The Pfister Hotel, InterContinental Milwaukee or Hilton Milwaukee City Center, and a $150 Pick ’n Save gift card courtesy of Roundy’s Supermarkets, Inc. (Roundy’s).
The Marcus culinary team will then bake the winning cookie recipe and donate 500 of the tasty treats to Hope House (www.hopehousemke.org), a local emergency and transitional living facility. This is the second year Hope House has received the cookie donation.
“We are delighted to receive this wonderful donation again,” said Ken Schmidt, Executive Director. “Our guests just loved the cookies last year. Even a gift so seemingly simple as cookies can make a big impact around the holidays.”
Marcus Restaurants’ partner, Roundy’s, will be supplying all of the containers the cookies will be packed in for delivery. The winning cookie also will be featured during the month of January 2013 in Marcus’ Milwaukee restaurants, Mason Street Grill, Kil@wat and Milwaukee ChopHouse.
We want to know what has become a cherished cookie tradition in your family. Don’t let your chance to win Milwaukee’s Favorite Cookie contest crumble away—get your entries in!
