Elves are busy making a choice selection of Christmas cookies for the annual Cookie Caper, a Christmas tradition at St. Johnís United Church.
Cookies, in attractive clear plastic containers, make welcome hostess gifts and provide you with a lovely assortment for holiday entertaining. Shut-in friends appreciate them as well.
The cookie caper is a walk along a huge row of tables laden with trays of delectable cookies. Guests are given a glove and container to choose their own cookies. The sale is from 9 a.m. to noon on Dec. 14.
The caper is particularly appealing to those who would like to have a variety of home baking for Christmas, but donít have the time make several different batches of cookies. Perhaps having so many cookies just would not be practical for a small household, yet a small selection of high quality traditional Christmas cookies would be welcome.
Gluten- free and cookies with spirits such as rum balls are on separate tables. Additional cookies are added every hour to ensure a selection throughout the morning.
Proceeds from this fun event go to St. Johnís United and to the Food Bank.
