Pies for the Holidays (with Giveaway)

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Mrs. Smith's for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.
It's pretty much a requirement in my family that holidays will involve pies.  Pies of all flavors and styles - and each one of us in my family has our own personal favorite.  I usually try to make at least one new flavor of pie and bring as a contribution each year.  Have you ever thought about what soldiers will be doing for the holidays?  Wouldn't you hate to think of them going without pie?  Well, thanks to Mrs. Smith’s pies, you don't have to worry about it!  For every pie sold during the month of November and December, $1 donation is made to Operation Homefront.  In addition, Mrs. Smith's is also providing pie for Operation Homefront!

On the Mrs. Smith's website right now, you can find a holiday microsite to send a holiday e-card to friends and family members, which comes with coupons for pies!  I sent an e-card to my mom, as she has been spending massive amounts of time taking care of my grandmother lately.  And I bet my grandmother would like one of the Mrs. Smith's pies!  I love how easy and quick it was to use the microsite.  As an added incentive, the sender of the e-card gets a coupon too, so you definitely want to check it out.

I got to try one of the pies myself, and let the kids choose the pie in the grocery store.  Peach is my favorite, but the only flavors our store had were cherry, pumpkin, and apple.  The boys picked apple.  We all enjoyed it for dessert one Sunday evening, complete with a squirt of whipped cream on top.

One lucky winner will receive a coupon for a free pie from Mrs. Smith's.  It's good for any flavor of Mrs. Smith's frozen pie.  Just leave a comment as to what flavor of pie you'd like to try (you can find all the flavors on their website).  In addition, Mrs. Smith's is really focused on giving back this year, so a $20 donation will be made to Operation Homefront in the name of the winner.  What a great way to spread the cheer.  Don't forget to check out Mrs. Smith's on Facebook and Pinterest.  Winner to be chosen by Random.org on December 11th and must respond by email within 48 hours to be eligible (please leave an email address in your comment if it is not attached to your profile).  Good luck!

THANKS TO ALL WHO ENTERED!  This giveaway is now closed.  The winner is Comment #29 - Thistle Cove Farm.  Congratulations!

Mrs. Smith's Apple Pie (Dutch Apple I think) is EXCELLENT with some ice cream on it.... Haven't had one in a long time --but had one of the Mrs. Smith's Pumpkin ones last year... It was good also.

Hugs,
Betsy
