Canby Grove Christian Center Dinning Hall
2-hour blocks from 7am-5pm
Come Join us for our First Annual Cookie Bake at The Grove. This even is part of our expansion of Christmas at the Grove. The Cookie Bake is an opportunity to take care of your holiday cooking needs, baking with friends and family in a festive atmosphere, cooking and frosting dozens of cookies at a time and having no mess to clean up. There are a limited amount of reservations available so you will need to sign up quickly. Pre-Payment of your dough is required for your reservation to be held.
Our cookie dough is “homemade” in our commercial kitchen. We use butter instead of Crisco for both our frosting and our dough, and we use pure vanilla. A commercial convection oven with many racks is used to bake the cookies faster than a home oven.
In addition to the Cookie Bake, Gifts at the Grove Christmas Store (10am-4pm) and The Snack Bar (8am-4pm) will be open.
Come join us for a fun, festive day with family and friends, celebrating the Christmas season and baking cookie gifts with love.
How it Works:

• Bring friends or family to help you roll and cut out cookies. (Tables hold up to 6 people helping to roll out dough although 4 would leave more room.)
