Cookies for a Cause

With the holidays approaching and with the Cookie Press on sale, why not use this double-benefit to your advantage? People always like to help a cause and this product is a fun way to start a conversation this time of the year. So create a fundraiser show featuring the Cookie Press on sale!

Here’s the idea:

· You pick your favorite charity.

· The Cookie Press is on sale for $23.20.

· Then you tell everyone you know – hosts, guests, customers, friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, doctor’s office, dentist office, etc., etc. that you are doing a fundraiser show for ___ Charity.

· You will call it Cookies for a Cause!

o With the Cookie Press on sale, every person who places an order for a Cookie Press (or any catalog item) will contribute to the fundraiser.

o With just 7 Cookie Presses you have a fundraiser show!

o Let everyone know that the Cookie Press is a great product this time of the year for themselves or for a gift.

o Let everyone know what charity you are working for and how their purchase of the sale Cookie Press or any product will help Cookies for a Cause!

· Just sell 7 Cookie Presses on sale and you will have a $162.40 show. That’s a show! That qualifies for a show! That show would make you active! That show would help you earn your apron and Sell-A-Thon!

· Then you submit that show as a fundraiser and your favorite charity earns some money too. Of course the more you submit, the more your charity earns. But regardless, it’s a win-win….the charity gets some cash and you are active and have done a wonderful community service!

Now you can take it step further if you have the Cookie Press!

· Bake a simple batch of sugar or butter cookies using your Cookie Press.

· As you take these cookies to work, church, family, friends, etc, let them sample the work of the Cookie Press and share with them your goal of Cookies for a Cause.

Here are more tips to share with everyone on the Cookie Press for Cookies for a Cause!

· It’s the perfect tool to have now in time for fun Christmas cookies.

· For the Cookie Press, you can do press cookies, make cheese straws or even use it to rice potatoes.

· The twist mechanism is much better than a ratchet style – allows more control of dispensed dough.

· There are 10 metal disks (not plastic) so they are much more durable.

· Clear plastic barrel allows you to see how much dough is in the barrel.

· Raised feet allows you to see the amount of dough dispensed so you know when to stop.

· This is the only cookie press that allows for ricing too! Ricing is a method of pressing soft, cooked food through small holes to create a velvety, smooth consistency. Ricing is a common method for preparing creamy mashed potatoes – just add milk, butter, salt and pepper to the riced potatoes. Ricer disk is specifically designed to rice russet, golden, red or white potatoes only.

· If any of your friends have hosted a show within the last year, she is entitled to 10% off her order. That is also included on the sale price of the Cookie Press. That means their cost of the $29.50 cookie press is only $21.24 (because they get 10% off the 20% sale price)!!!

Have fun and press forward!!

Love Love Love this idea. Thank-you.
Here is a recipe that my roommate at Director Academy, Christine, shared with me. My mom made them yesterday (and she always makes cookie press cookies from her recipe) and she reported, "Amazing these worked -- and they are good!"
Enjoy this quick and easy recipe:
1 Cup Creamy Peanut Butter
1 Cup Sugar
1 Egg
Mix well. Choose your favorite design and press. Bake at 350*F 10-12 minutes. Cookies will not spread much and should not be allowed to get too brown. You can then DIP cookies in Melted Chocolate Almond Bark. They taste just like a PEANUT BUTTER CUP!
