The snow started falling yesterday around 3pm, and today the schools in the area were closed for the first snow day of the year. But that falling snow brings something else very special – Winter!
When I think of winter, I always think of baking. My mom used to bake tons in the Christmas season and I love bake too. Plus, I’m way more willing to turn on the oven in the winter than I am in the summer.
So that makes this the perfect time for the Eagle Brand Sweet Secret Recipe and Essay contest! From now until December 7th, Eagle Brand is inviting home bakers to submit an original dessert recipe and a short essay (100 words or less, which is shorter than this post before the parentheses!) describing why Eagle Brand Sweetened Condensed Milk is the secret ingredient in their recipe for a chance to win $10,000 toward your secret wish!
Details: Dessert recipe has to include at least one 14-ounce can of sweetened condensed milk and fit into one of five categories – fudge, cheesecake, pie, cookie bar, or other. The contest ends on December 7th, 2011, and is open to legal residents of the 50 United States and D.C., 18 years and older. For complete details, rules and all the legal stuff, visit www.EagleBrand.com or in Spanish visit www.MarcaEagle.com. Also check out the Eagle Brand Facebook page.
Sweetened condensed milk is a special blend of milk and sugar that is used in tons of holiday recipes. You can add acid to it (like lemon juice) and it will thicken without heat. Or you can empty it into a pan, heat it up and it will caramelize beautifully. And, of course, it makes a killer fudge!
