Cookies For Cops, Cookies Baked With Love


wrapped and ready to go


During Christmas month, our church Faith Baptist in Port Washington, Wisconsin bake cookies for the jail guards of Ozaukee Justice Center. This is our way of showing  gratitude for their service and our way of wishing them a Merry Christmas.  My Pastor is the Chaplain and one of the steering committees that trains Chaplains in there. We called the event Cookies For Cops, but since it is out of love that we are doing what we are doing so I added Cookies Baked With Love. 


The church has been doing it for almost five years, but this is my first time participating in this event. Although  I didn't know how to bake cookies and since I really wanted to be part of it, I taught myself how to bake cookies. I searched recipes online, tips of how to bake and even asked my husband and church friends. In the Philippines, the country where I came from, baking is not the usual way of  how we prepare our meals. The first cookies I baked wasn't so bad and my kids liked it. The second time I baked, I took it to the church so we can wrap it and send it to Ozaukee Justice center. 


these are the cookies I baked, dark chocolate chips cookies


The ladies in the church did a really good job, they baked several kinds of cookies. I tasted some of them and it was very yummy.

very creative, I will try to make some of these someday

this is how it looks like without the wrapper

According to Pastor Colson, the cookies didn't last for a day. The Jail Guards at Ozaukee Justice Center loved it and they were all looking forward to the next years Cookies For Cops.

Next year, I will definitely join the baking team again  and I am hoping that by then I can bake different kinds of delicious cookies with colorful designs on it. To God be the glory for the opportunity to reach out in the community and to serve others.
