Mama Kelce's cookies are benefiting a good cause.

Donna Kelce, who famously brought homemade cookies to her sons Jason and Travis Kelceahead of the Super Bowlearlier this year, is hosting an "old-fashioned bake sale" with her signature recipe. Through a partnership with Aramark Sports + Entertainment, Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles fans will be able to buy Donna's chocolate chip cookies on Christmas Day at Arrowhead Stadium and Lincoln Financial Field, where the teams play.

"All proceeds from cookie sales will benefit organizations selected by the teams – the Eagles Autism Foundation in Philadelphia and Operation Breakthrough in Kansas City," Donna tells PEOPLE exclusively. "These two organizations mean a lot to my sons, and it’s a nice feeling to be able to support them in my own special way."

Best of all, Aramark, which is the food and beverage partnerat both stadiums, is matching the donation to each organization.

The cookies will be available at Arrowhead Stadium, Kingdom Lodge in Section 136 starting at 1 p.m. ET and Lincoln Financial Field, HeadHouse Plaza, Club Markets, and Suite Levelat 4:30 p.m. ET.

The recipe (below) is "an absolute favorite for me and everyone in the family," she says. It includes milk and white chocolate chips, brown and white sugar, sweet cream butter, cinnamon, optional pecans, and a few other ingredients that really make it a win on and off the field.

"They have been a holiday staple for a long time, so it is very special to share the recipe that Travis, Jason, and the kids love with fans during the holidays. I hope they will enjoy them as much as we have through the years and gather in the kitchen with their own families and friends to bake them, just as I do with mine," she adds.

Donna plans to spend Christmas with Jason, his wife Kylie and their three kids, as the Eagles take on the New York Giants. "I may be popping by some of the cookie stands at Lincoln Financial Field, so I encourage people to stop by and say hello!" she says.

Donna will be in Kansas City with Travis on New Year's Eve while his team plays the Cincinnati Bengals.

"I embrace the holiday games and enjoy the special days with our football family," Donna tells PEOPLE. "We will enjoy Christmas as a family on another day. Santa somehow has always been able to find families who work on Christmas Day on an alternate date."

Mama Kelce's Best Chocolate Chip Cookies

1½ cups sweet cream butter (3 sticks)
1½ cups packed light brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 large egg + 1 egg yolk
1 Tbsp. vanilla extract
1 tsp. baking soda (dissolved in 2 Tbsp. of hot water to activate; microwave water first then stir in baking soda to dissolve)
2 cups all purpose flour
1 cup cake or pastry flour
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. cinnamon
1½ tsp. salt
1 cup white chocolate chips
1 cup milk chocolate
1 cup chopped pecans (optional)

1. Melt butter in microwave in 20-second increments (do not overdo!). Pour into mixing bowl or stand mixer. Let cool for 15 to 20 minutes.

2. Add brown and white sugar to butter mixture and mix for 4 minutes. Scrape down sides of bowl and add eggs, one at a time.

3. Add vanilla and mix for 30 seconds.

4. Add dissolved baking soda.

5. In a separate bowl, add all purpose flour, cake or pastry flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt, and mix to combine. Slowly add this mixture 1/2 cup at a time to mixer, scraping down sides.

6. Add all chocolate chips and pecans, if desired, with a wooden spoon.

7. Put in refrigerator for at least 3 hours; ideally overnight.

8. Preheat oven to 350°.

9. Before baking, make sure the dough is at room temperature. Scoop dough onto baking sheet, leaving 2 inches between scoops, 5 minutes before baking.

10. For small cookies, bake for 10 minutes, or until lightly golden around edges. For larger cookies, bake for 13 to 15 minutes. If you touch the top of the cookie and it bounces back instead of indenting, that means it’s ready. Every oven is different.
