It was traditional in many societies to clear our cupboards of foods made with butter, eggs and fat that would be given up during the Lenten season. However, may we offer an alternative suggestion, use those ingredients to make cookies. We don’t need them until April 7th but they can be made ahead of time and frozen.
Please make each cookie with prayer. These cookies help open hearts to repentance and forgiveness and an awareness of God’s vast love.
Bake any recipe you would like, but please keep in mind that if we are to take each and every cookie into the institution, we need to follow certain guidelines.
This means that specific ingredients cannot be used. When baking, please remember:
NO raisins or other dried fruit or coconut
NO toppings such as sugar, decorations or icing
NO candy such as M&Ms
YES to chocolate and butterscotch chips
COOL COOKIES completely before placing them in 1 quart zip lock bags
Cookies should be approximately 2 to 2 1/2 inches in size.
12 cookies per quart size ziplock bag
Please indicate the type of cookie on each bag
We need 100 dozen cookies so feel free to start baking now and put them in your freezer.
Questions? Please call Cheri Martin @ 540-837-1774
All cookies need to be here by Sunday, April 7th.
