Scrumptious recipes from the Cookie Walk kooks

Note: This year, the Cookie Walk has been moved to the second Saturday in December—December 14th!

Here are some really great Cookie Recipes for you to prepare now and freeze ready for our big day. Maybe you could make a weekly batch whilst it’s quiet before the Christmas rush. These two recipes are tried and tested and freeze extremely well.


1 cup Shortening 
1½ cups sugar
2 eggs
2¾ cups flour
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
1 teaspoon baking soda
¼ teaspoon salt

Heat oven to 375°F. Mix shortening, sugar and eggs thoroughly. Measure flour by sifting. Blend all dry ingredients, stir in shortening mixture. Roll into balls the size of walnuts, then roll each one in a mixture of 2 tablespoons of sugar and 2 teaspoons of cinnamon. Place on cookie sheet. Bake for 8 to 10 mins. Cool, place in airtight container, label and freeze until ready to use.
