Sweet Summer Treats Contest

by on July 16, 2010 · 6 comments

Since I stole that first cookie from my grandmother’s cookie jar, I’ve been a fan of Archway.  My grandmother’s favorites were the Molasses, but back at our house my mom was partial to Windmills.  She kept her stash hidden, but I eventually found it and decided I liked Windmills too.  This week I shared some Windmills with Fuzz.  She said she enjoyed them, but still prefers Circus Animals.  Either way, we’re a  family of Archway fans, so I’m  happy to tell you about Archway’s new contest.

Archway found consumers were not only eating their cookies, but using them in desserts -crushed in pie crusts, sandwiched with ice cream and even baked into muffins.  To put some of these uses in the forefront, Archway has named their contest “Sweet Summer Treats” and is asking readers to submit their favorite sweet treats for a chance at winning a $250 Visa gift card.   

 It’s a simple contest with no on-line voting or video-making.  Just come up with a recipe incorporating Archway cookies and submit it to Archway through their website.    Archway is publishing the recipes as they come, so you can see what other people are doing, but there will only be three winners – one in each category.  Categories are

  • Dessert with ice cream
  • Non-ice cream dessert
  • Non-dessert creation (such as but not limited to muffin, appetizer, non-alcoholic beverage, etc.)

— The same recipe can only be submitted into one category.

—Cookie or cookies used need not remain in the shape or form that it appears in the Archway® Cookie packaging. Cookies may be cut, crumbled, crushed, ground, etc. 

— Each recipe will be judge based on three criteria: appearance, taste and the creative use of Archway® Cookies in the recipe and a winner will be selected in the sole discretion of the judges.

This is a cool contest. I can’t even remember the last time I had Archway cookies, but I know loved them when I was little. My favorites are Iced Oatmeal and the Dutch Cocoa. There’s something about them that I just can’t replicate in homemade cookies.

Oh, and I have to agree with Fuzz, the Iced Animal Cookies are pretty amazing too.

Do you have a recipe for the brownie that is pictured?

I’ve never had Archway Cookies, but this has inspired me to try some! Now I just have to see if our grocery stores carry them :)

Archway was my absolute favorite as a child. I loved the Dutch Cocoa, Oatmeal Raisin and Apple Oatmeal Fruit Filled cookies and the Brownie Bars they no longer make.

I’m so glad that Archway brand cookies returned after they were discontinued! My favorites were the Rocky Road cookies, which they either don’t make any more or don’t sell in my area (Washington D.C. suburbs). I also like their Coconut Macaroons, which I think are only made during the holidays?
