dougBaldwin Hackett & Meeks, Inc. is honored to share with you the winning recipe from our 15th annual BHMI Favorite Seasonal Treat Contest. Each year BHMI holds a company-wide contest to find the recipe that will prove worthy as BHMI’s corporate holiday gift.

This year’s BHMI Best seal of approval goes to Doug Edwards, Senior Technical Writer, for his Chocolate Mint Sugar Cookies. Doug and his wife, Janet, have been baking and sharing these cookies with friends and family for over 30 years!  They have stood the test of time and now they have the BHMI Best seal of approval. You can’t go wrong this holiday season by sharing these festive, seasonal mint cookies.

Doug has been with BHMI for 2 years and writes reference and user documentation for BHMI’s Concourse Financial Software Suite™ of products. When Doug isn’t composing technical prose, you might find him enjoying a cup of coffee with his wife on one of their weekly Saturday morning coffee dates or cheering on the University of Nebraska – Lincoln Husker volleyball team.  Doug is also looking forward to celebrating a 40th wedding anniversary with his wife, Janet, this coming April.

We are delighted to share this recipe with you, and we hope it brings holiday cheer to your office.  We wish you a blessed holiday season and may the New Year greet you with success and happiness.
