Cookie Workshop For Kids
Join in the fun at the Christmas Cookie Workshop. Youth ages 9-14 will spend the morning making several types of delicious and unique cookies that can be reproduced easily at home for parties or gift giving. The class will join together to create some of Kay's favorite recipes, including cookie ornaments. This is a great time to learn how make edible gifts for friends and family or to make a cookie collection for a holiday get-together. A perfect time for parents to sneak off for some Christmas shopping!
