Customer Sarah Lake from New Berlin shared her favorite recipe and fond Cookie Book memory. She chose Christmas Miniatures from the 1984 Cookie Book. The petite sugar cookie, which features a beautiful rose created with decorating frosting, can be found on Page 5 of this year’s book.
“We kick off our cookie-baking season with a trip to get our Cookie Book. We always feature a new cookie from that year’s Cookie Book (and some from past years). I can’t wait to pass on the tradition to my kids someday,” said Lake.
The Cookie Book helped inspire a future career for customer Sarah Hoots of Whitewater: “When I was growing up, my dad had the 1998 edition. I have so many favorites from the Cookie Book. Fifteen years later, I am now a professional baker.”
Hoots chose a recipe that even nonbakers can enjoy. Her Easy No-Bake Cookies that feature cocoa powder, peanut butter and oats can be found on Page 6.
