Update: The Bake Sale for Beka is now closed. I’d like to thank Taryn L. from the Seattle area for placing the winning bid on my Cherry Almond Shortbread Cookies – a whopping $60! This year’s Bake Sale raised almost $1,700 for the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America. Unbelievable, and completely impossible without the support of our friends, family and bake sale bidders. So thank you from the bottom of my heart for helping us help Beka reach her goal!
We’ve waited so patiently and it’s finally here! The Bake Sale for Beka, also known as Cookies for Crohn’s, kicks off this morning and I’m so excited to be participating! As I mentioned earlier, I’m donating four dozen Cherry Almond Shortbread Cookies dipped in chocolate. What kind of chocolate, you ask? Well, whatever chocolate the winning bidder chooses, of course!
Win my cookies, and you can pick whichever rich Guittard chocolate enrobes them – white, milk or dark. But wait, did you just say you’d pick all three? Well then, place the winning bid on my cookies and tell them you’d like them as a ‘variety pack’ and that’s exactly what you’ll get! I’ll stop at nothing to raise more money for Beka and the Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation of America!
To recap – that’s four dozen handmade shortbread cookies chock full of toasted almonds, dried Michigan cherries and real butter, dipped in the chocolate of your choice. Heck, I may even throw in a jar of homemade jam for the lucky winner. It’s insanity! So what are you waiting for? Go bid on these beauties!

Great Cause! Heading over to get in on the bidding!
Awesome! You rock, Kris!
Thanks Jeanne so much. You’ve got a heart of gold. I couldn’t possibly adore you anymore. Or I could, but my heart would explode. And who wants to clean up that mess? XOXOXO
I feel the same way about you, Megan. You’re amazing. And this just turned into a gooey girly smooch fest. Sorry, readers!
What delicious looking shortbread! And all that chocolate makes them absolutely decadent! :) What a great event for a great cause. Careful mailing these in hot weather to the lucky high bidder. These HAVE to be enjoyed in their crunchy glory (though chocolate dipping sauce isn’t a bad thing. :) )
I hear you. I’m still waiting to hear where my winning bidder lives, but I’m already thinking of ways to insulate them with a chill bag so the chocolate doesn’t melt. May just spring for overnight shipping, too, if it’s not outrageously expensive. Fingers are crossed!
Maybe the winner would be willing to postpone shipping for cooler weather. Delayed gratification. :)
