Don’t let holiday baking snow you under. Come to the 14th annual Christmas Cookie Festival on Saturday, Dec. 3, at Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, 5901 E. 135th St., Grandview.
Outside doors will open at 8:30 a.m. with festival doors opening at 9 a.m. The sale will continue until the cookies are sold out, normally 10 a.m.
First shoppers will get the best selection of 12 varieties of homemade cookies — ranging from traditional Christmas favorites of snickerdoodles and sugar cookies to more unusual varieties, such as white chocolate peppermint and holiday orange cranberry. Two cookies debut this year: butter pecan fantasies and eggnog snickerdoodles. All cookies will be homemade.
Each shopper will buy an empty box for $20 and then fill the box with four to five dozen personally selected cookies. The lid on the box must close. Shoppers may buy more than one box of cookies.
In addition, iced decorated cookies will be sold for $10 a dozen and homemade candy will be sold for $10 a pound. Prewrapped trays of cookies and some bagged cookies will be available.
Shoppers must adhere to any and all COVID 19 protocols. Cash, check and credit cards will be accepted.
All proceeds from the event will benefit the church’s mission projects, including Lutheran High School of Kansas City; Grandview Assistance Program; Lutheran missions in Siberia; and Concordia Lutheran Seminary in St. Louis. Funds also will assist the church’s preschool and Grace Day, Holy Trinity’s annual back-to-school outreach.
