An old-fashioned cookie walk


Fri, Oct 12th, 2012
Posted in Lanesboro Faith & Worship

By Barb Jeffers

Cookies, cookies, and more cookies! The Bethlehem Lutheran Church WELCA of Lanesboro, Minn. held their annual Cookie Walk on Saturday, October 6. The event was held at the Sons of Norway Lodge in Lanesboro with hundreds of dozens of cookies up for grabs. Customers with sweet tooths waited in line until the doors opened at 10:00 a.m. waiting to get their hands on the goodies. The Cookie Walk ends when the cookies are sold out.

When a customer walks in they are given a box with a plastic glove inside to wear as they pick out their cookies. The tables of cookies are arranged in a large square shape, so people can walk around and easily make their choices. Once you have all the cookies you would like, the WELCA women weigh your box of cookies, charging five dollars per pound.

The wide assortment of cookies makes choosing difficult with old-fashioned favorites such as date-filled, Aunt Sally, and oatmeal raisin cookies. Of course there were the ever-popular chocolate chip, peanut butter, and molasses cookies on the tables as well. Then there were the timely Halloween cookies and even some Christmas cookies! After sampling a few (or more) cookies it is easy to see why the Old-Fashioned Cookie Walk is an event many people look forward to every year.
