Event Details

Join Food Explorers for a special summer baking program! You’ll be making two delicious recipes: Strawberry Swirl Cookies and Chocolate Tarts! You’ll get your hands messy crushing your freeze dried strawberries and making your Oreo crust, test out the electric mixer, frost your cookies, and more! Recipes are nut free but will contain dairy, eggs and gluten.

This program is sponsored by the Friends of the Southbury Public Library.
