Cookie bake Christmas sharing Tatla Lake

The kitchen at Tatla Lake School was very busy for the Christmas cookie bake, share and take home.

The kitchen at Tatla Lake School was very busy for the Christmas cookie bake, share and take home.

Volunteers Sara McDonough, Sylvia Dyck, Sandra Weiler, Selma Padgett and myself with organizer Christianna Zintl keeping things organized for the event held on Friday, Dec. 12.

The primary grade students came in first all excited as they scrambled for measuring cups, bowls and stirring utensils.

Then the ingredients were gathered, mixed, stirred and plopped onto the baking sheets!

A wide variety of cookies were made, but the most fun part was Sara, Sylvia and Sandra’s table as there were sprinkles involved. A lot of great creations were made at that table.

By 10:30 a.m. the younger ones were sent back to class and the older students came in.

I forgot how much the volume increases with this age group, but soon bowls, utensils and ingredients were flying around as well as instructions from the students to each other … oh boy,  fun!

Each group had their own recipes and soon the lineups for the ovens were quite long, while the aroma drifting down the hall had mouths watering.

A lot of cookies were sampled to ensure they were good enough to eat, some passed the test quite a few times!

In the end about, just  guess here, 15 dozen cookies were made which will be sorted out, bagged and sent home with the students to share with their families.

It was a very enjoyable morning spent with friends and students, such a great community.
