CLEARFIELD, Utah (AP) — Residents at a Utah senior citizens’ community have raised more than $22,000 for charity through bake sales.
The Standard Examiner reports that a group gathers nearly every week to bake together at Chancellor Gardens in Clearfield, and for six years they’ve sold the sweet treats at community bake sales.
Cookies sell for three for $1 at bake sales held three to four times a year. They made enough to donate about $1,100 to Safe Harbor Crisis Center in Farmington in August.
The seniors make everything from cookies to fudge to mini breads and candies, using recipes from past and current residents.
On a recent day, they hand-mixed the ingredients for a popular favorite: 16 dozen boiled raisin jumbo cookies.
The next sale will be Nov. 14
