To make this as easy as possible we offer the following hints:
Choose a favorite Christmas cookie recipe. Remember that the cookies that sell best are festive and traditional Christmas cookies, so please not too many chocolate chip or peanut butter. Using red and green colored chips, colorful sprinkles, sugars, and icings can make plain cookies more festive.
Watch for sales and purchase the ingredients ahead of time.
Set aside baking time the week of the Cookie Walk or earlier if you have room to freeze them.
In the cloister and parish hall we will have aluminum It is our goal to have 100 bakers each baking 10 dozen Christmas cookies for our pans and labels for you to use to bring your cookies to church. Please be sure that each pan has a completed label taped to the top.
Hints for Freezing Cookies
1. Cool cookies completely.
2. Place cookies in single layers separated by waxed paper in airtight containers. Freeze until Cookie Walk time.
3. Please keep your frozen cookies at home until the Cookie Walk. There is simply no room in the church freezer for cookie contributions.
Cookies may be dropped off at Church on Friday morning, Dec 13 from 8:00 to 10:30. There will be helpers in the alley that will unload your cookies so that you will not need to park. You can also bring them on Thursday, Dec. 12 from 1:00 until 4:00, but you will need to bring them to the kitchen yourself. If you need another time or help with transportation call Carolyn Freberg 717-713-0985.
