|Colleen Cyr and Pauline Breeze with baking artifacts and cookbook|
Kootenai Brown Pioneer Village (KBPV) is holding the 'Largest Christmas Cookie Sale in Pincher Creek History' on Sunday, December 8, from 11 am to 5 pm at 1037 Bev McLachlin Drive, Pincher Creek in the KBPV administration building. "I want our events to be first class and unique, so instead of just a bake sale we decided to go really big," said Pincher Creek and District Historical (PCDHS) President Colleen Cyr.
"It's more than just cookies," said Cyr, explaining that the sale will include cakes, fancy breads, squares, pies, tarts, jams and jellies and bags of edible treats. So far over 40 varieties of 500 dozen cookies, squares and other treats have been made.
Cyr addressed the issues that people have with getting everything done during this busy season, and still wanting to have home made treats. "This is the best of both worlds," she said. You can enjoy tea and a treat while getting your Christmas baking." She considered that this would be perfect gifts for teachers, employees and friends.
In addition there will be a cookbook for sale for $10.00 that will feature tried and true family recipes that were compiled from families of the Pincher Creek and District Historical Society. Inside of the cookbook are historical photos of the area, and of kitchen artifacts that were used by people in the area. There is also two puzzle photos of artifacts that the PCDHS would like more information about.
