Outline, fill, and jiggle! Add the final touches and voila! It’s easy!
Perhaps so for Holly (left), Alondra (below), Sydnie and Sandy, four of our Lovin’ Oven teens who have been under the tutelage of Amy Hunsberger (Once Bitten cookies) for some time. Happily, all were on hand to guide those who were new to the fun. Volunteers of all ages came to Teen Services this past weekend to outline, fill, and jiggle, create a variety of special holiday cookies, and smile at the outcomes.
Preceding the decorating, teens were busy making the dough, rolling, rolling, and rolling. Then the cutouts, more rolling, more cutouts – over and over until ~600 cookies were ready to be decorated. Amy had the icings all ready to go and the Teen Center classroom became the cookie factory.
Then came the packaging preparing for delivery.
We are so grateful to all who joined in on the fun!!
