St. Anthony of Padua’s cookie walk Dec. 2

St. Anthony of Padua Church will hold its annual cookie walk from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., Saturday, Dec. 2, in the Parish Center of the church at 1010 Ferguson St.

The event will feature some of Rockford’s best homemade Italian cookies, available just in time for the holidays. Many of the traditional recipes featured at the cookie walk have been handed down from generation to generation in Rockford’s Italian community, and are available to the public at this event.

Cookies are $10 per box, and fig cookies will be sold by the pound. All proceeds will benefit ongoing church programs.
