How A Cookie Walk Works...
COOKIE WALK TIP #1:
Part of the fun of a Cookie Walk is to see how many cookies you can pack in your container. Many people walk up and down the aisles to figure out which cookies they will select. The trick is to put the heaviest, most hearty cookies on the bottom and then build from there. Put thin cookies along the sides and fill-in spaces with the petite cookies. Be sure to save the most beautiful cookies for the top. You will be amazed at how many cookies a perfectly packed box will hold.
Bakery Box sealed with a bow
When you enter the St. Nicholas Church Cookie Wonderland, you will be faced with a very difficult decision - what size box to buy.
If you are giving the cookies as a gift or this is just for you, the Festive Holiday Take-out Container is ideal. You can fit a good variety of cookies inside although we recommend you walk around the cookie display to make sure you see all the potential cookie options. There have been many times that we have heard "oh no - I'm only half way through and my box is nearly full!"
The Bakery Box is perfect for a family. We will even put a beautiful bow on the box ready to give as a gift to others or as a treat to yourself.
There is also a gluten-free option. Click here for more details...
Once you buy your empty box, you will then be given a plastic glove and it is time to "take a walk" through a delectable array of beautiful holiday cookies. You fill your container with as many of your favorites as it can hold. We must be able to close the lid!
Once your selection is complete, your container will be sealed with a ribbon and is ready for giving.
COOKIE WALK TIP #2:
Our cookies freeze very well. You can literally take your box of cookies and put it into the freezer (although we do suggest putting them in a freezer bag or plastic container).
TRUE STORY: One of our parishioners found a box of cookies tucked away in his trunk... in February. He still ate them and said they were as delicious as when he bought them at the Cookie Walk in December!
