I think it is so important for the students to give back to the people that help us all year long”

— Ms. Layton

 

Throughout the month of December, Ms. Layton’s Culinary Arts cooking classes have been making holiday cookies. These holiday cookies consist of eight different kinds but also include everyone’s favorite; chocolate chip and peanut butter.

The cookies are donated to places such as St. Gregory’s Pantry, our local police and fire stations, and the animal shelter. Ms. Layton said, “I think it is so important for the students to give back to the people that help us all year long, especially during the holidays.”  The students also take home a tray to share with their families for the holidays.

To add to the holiday joy, each student makes a card to go along with each tray of cookies. This is Ms. Layton’s 20th year with her cookie tradition and her students enjoy baking each type of cookie as much as they love donating them!  

Below is a delicious chocolate chip cookie recipe! These are one of Ms. Layton’s favorites. Happy baking!
