Do you have a great story about making a special baked dessert for the holidays? Send in your best family recipe along with a story for why it's special, and you could be a winner! Fifteen finalists will be chosen to bring their baked goods to Historic Deerfield to be judged on Saturday, December 7. Prizes from King Arthur Flour will be awarded in categories including best story, most unique/creative, and best presentation/taste. The deadline for entries is Friday, November 15, 2013.

December is King Arthur Flour Month at Historic Deerfield. Holidays are about memories, and the foods we prepare and share form a significant core of that memory bank. Recipes (or receipts at they were once called) whether written down or taught by demonstration are documents of these memories.  King Arthur Flour Month kicks off on Heritage Baking Day, Saturday, December 7, with a focus on historic baking and inspiration to start new baking traditions with help from King Arthur Flour's Baking Education Center. Enjoy giftmaking, horse-drawn wagon rides, gingerbread cookie decorating, performances by the Connecticut Yuletide Carolers, and museum tours. Learn more about all of our Heritage Holiday events at
