Christmas Cookie Walk
Saturday December 8. Doors open at 10 AM . Get there early for the best selection.Get your Christmas baking done in one morning. Buy a box of Cookies for only $10.00.Since it started, it has been a good fund raiser for our church. We have had great fun sharing those cookies and recipes passed down from past family Christmas traditions.Over the years we have had bakers add in gluten free cookies and lighter versions of the old recipes. However, the shortbread cookie has maintained its prominence as the most sought after cookie. The variety of lovely little cookies makes a delicious addition to your holiday. If you would like to contribute a batch of your favorite traditional cookies or try baking something new, please drop them off at the Church by Friday Dec 7. Everyone is encouraged to tell their family or friends to pick up a box of cookies.
