Calling All Cookie Lovers: Here's Your Chance to #BakeItForward

Find out how you can give back this season just by sharing pictures of your favorite holiday baked goods.

Now that you've officially used up the last bits and bites of your Thanksgiving feast, it's high time to switch your focus to a sweeter agenda: holiday baking. 'Tis the season for dressed-up gingerbread people, creamy mint cheesecake, sugar-dusted sugar cookies and more baked favorites, each brimming with the good cheer of the holidays.

From now through the end of the year, as you roll up your sleeves and prepare to roll out cookie dough, you can join Food Network and No Kid Hungry as they team up to provide 1 million meals to children who need them most. All you have to do is take a picture of whatever you're already baking, share it on social media using the hashtag #BakeItForward and nominate a friend to do the same. With each photo that's shared and tagged, Food Network will donate $1 to No Kid Hungry — and $1 provides a whopping 10 meals to those in need.

Looking for some sweet inspiration? Visit Food Network's Holiday Central for recipe ideas and chefs' how-tos, and tune in to Holiday Baking Championship on Sundays at 9|8c to watch the bakers showcase their best creations. Check out some of Food Network's top baked treats below to get started.
