Archuleta County 4-H cookie dough sale begins

This week marks the eighth anniversary of one of our favorite events: Baker Jo’s Cookie Dough.

Local 4-H members started taking orders this week and will continue to take orders until March 2. 4-H members sell tubs of cookie dough to their friends, family and residents in the community. The overall goal this year is 2,500 tubs, which would exceed last year’s total. With the fantastic incentives we have in place, we feel that our goal can be reached.

4-H members will be selling 11 delectable flavors of cookie dough: Triple Chocolate with White and Dark Chips, Snickerdoodle, White Chocolate Macadamia, Monster Cookie, Peanut Butter with Chocolate Chunks, Made with Heath English Toffee. These tubs sell for $13 each.

To finish out your choices of gourmet cookie dough, we have: Chunky Chocolate Chip, Made with M&M’s, Peanut Butter, Oatmeal Raisin and Sugar. These tubs sell for $11 each.

The cookie dough comes in three pound tubs that can be refrigerated or stored in the freezer. The cookie dough can even be eaten raw because it is made with pasteurized eggs instead of raw eggs.

The cookie dough will be ready for delivery on March 18 by 4-H youth.

If you would like to order cookie dough but cannot find a 4-H member to order from, contact the Archuleta County Extension Office at 264-5931 to place an order.

All funds raised will be dispersed between the seven different 4-H community clubs and the 4-H Council. They will use it for sending 4-H members to educational programs such as, YouthFest, Leadership Development Conference, Colorado 4-H State Conference, Colorado State Fair, community service projects, scholarships for 4-H member, re-enrollment fees for next year, or other individual club projects.
