Cookie Requirements
PICTURES of cookies from past years are on the website for ideas! Go to and find the Monica link on the Parents page.

You can also look at the attached list for ideas: Cookie List .

Things to remember:
  • The Cookie should be worth approximately $.75 each (size & appearance).
  • Remember to make them festive!
  • Cookies that are always a hit are almond tarts, decorated sugar cookie cut-outs, bonbons & pecan tassies. Recipes for "Classic" Monica cookies are available in the school office.
  • Cookies should be fresh & not made ahead of time & frozen prior to the Cookie Walk.
  • Do not decorate cookies with gel because it smears onto other cookies.
  • Sugar cookies need to be neatly frosted & decorated.
  • Gingersnaps must be dipped or decorated…no plain ones.
  • Almond Tarts should have white frosting applied with a decorator tip. These sell best.
  • Bonbons, truffles, fudges and 'sticky items' (pecan chews) must be in liners (mini muffin liners).
