On December 3rd and 5th of this week, FCCLA baked Christmas cookies for COPE’s annual Christmas party. This is a yearly tradition for FCCLA that is highly anticipated throughout the year. Students spend the first day preparing the dough and baking the cookies, and another day decorating them. COPE  is a nonprofit organization that helps to provide groceries and clothing for families in need, which is especially important around this time of year. Through this project FCCLA members can help the community, and take part in a fun Christmas tradition.

December 3rd was the day for baking cookies. Together everyone was able to bake 12 dozen sugar cookies for the Christmas party. Following the classic sugar cookie recipe that is used every year, the group was able to get all of the cookies into the ovens in a couple of hours. The cookies were cut into fun Christmas shapes, like Christmas trees, candy canes, and Santa. The cookies baked to a golden brown and then they were ready to cool.

December 5th was the day that everyone always looks forward to: decorating. This year everyone decided to make a powdered sugar icing and decorate with sprinkles. The icing took some time to perfect but as soon as it was ready the cookies were quickly frosted and sprinkled within the hour. With their festive shapes and colors and fun sprinkles, the cookies looked delightful for the COPE Christmas party.

The Christmas cookie tradition is a favorite of many FCCLA events throughout the year, but it is a favorite of many. Now everyone can enjoy the rest of the Christmas season and eagerly anticipate frosting more cookies next year.
