Three Scholastic employees took over the kitchen at the Special Learning Center for a few hours Thursday afternoon.
The women, each of whom has worked at Scholastic for more than three decades, ribbed each other as they mixed dough and baked about 18 dozen cookies.
Lori Massman, Maria Stockman and Cindy Hall were participating in the annual United Way Days of Caring, which occurred Thursday and continues today.
“Some of the cookies will be sent home with the kids (at the center) and some will be for the Tom Henke Golf Tournament,” Massman said.
The annual tournament is one of the largest fundraisers conducted for the center, which serves more than 800 children through therapy programs, special-education classes, childcare and other services.
Stockman and Hall laughed when Massman scoffed at the notion sugar is not a dry ingredient for cookies. Sugar goes in with the butter, they told her.
