Cookies Got Me Like ‘Yes Please’



   The wonderful smell of chocolate drifts out of the oven, tickling your nostrils, making your mouth water. You are oblivious to the soft pitter patter of rain on the window as you pull the tray of cookies out of the oven, freshly baked and ready to eat. You take a bite, and the warm, melting chocolate fills your mouth.

   Is all of that hard work you put in – the dough you mixed, the way you carefully cut the cookies into perfect circles – really worth this one moment of joy? Here’s a secret: you could have made twice the number of cookies that tasted just as good in half the time and hassle by buying pre-made cookie dough.

   This November, the Pinewood Choir is selling cookie dough, brownie batter, cinnamon rolls, cheesecakes, and other delicious baked goods made by Dough-to-Go, which is promoted by Harmoney Resources. With these delicious pre-made baked goods, you can enjoy the holiday season with less
work and worry.

   The money from this fundraiser will go towards the choir scholarship fund to help students pay for trips to
Europe and Disneyland.

   “I think it’s kind of unfair for [choir students] to not go [on a trip] just because of financial issues, so I think that this is a great way to fundraise money,” sophomore Stella Kailahi said.

   The choir does a fundraiser every year, but this is the first time they will sell baked goods.

   “In the past we’ve done See’s candies for fundraisers, and I thought it would be kind of fun to do something different,” choir director Katie Linza said.

   For those who have ordered any of these ready-to-bake goods from choir students, items should arrive by Dec. 8. Unfortunately, the orders can no longer be placed.

   “I think it’s a good idea because there’s such a variety that everyone can probably find things that they like,” freshman and Women’s Chorus member Charu
Tiwari said.

   An added bonus- if the choir students sell the equivalent of ten items per person, then they will not need to do their performance report assignments for the second semester.

   “I’m excited… The cookies are really delicious…I really like them, and I’ve always ordered them myself,” Linza said.
