The Catherine Blaine Bake Sale!


Do you love freshly baked goods? Well, you’re in luck! The Catherine Blaine bake sale has just happened! Occurring on 16th, 17th and 18th of May (this year) the bake sale is a student run way to raise money for events such as; school dances, field trips and other ASB (associated student body) activities. Don’t worry if you missed it this year though, the bake sale is annual, meaning that it will happen each and every year.

You may be wondering, how would the bake sale make a profit if they would be spending so much money on baked goods to sell? Well like I said, the bake sale is partly run by students. So, anyone can make or buy fresh goods to be donated to the bake sale. You can also help by volunteering to run the stand and sell the treats. You can make anything (that is a baked good. No “dino-nuggies)! I myself made something. But, it’s a family recipe so I can’t show it. But here is a recipe for chocolate chip cookies!


Ingredients: 2.5 sticks of butter, 10 oz. light or dark brown sugar, 8 oz. granulated sugar, 2 large eggs, 2 t vanilla, 17 oz. unbleached AP flour, 1 1/4 t baking soda, 1  1/2 t baking powder, 1  1/2 t coarse salt, 1 lb chocolate (chopped into chunks, or chocolate chips).

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Cream the butter with the white and brown sugars using a hand or stand mixer until everything is well mixed. Add the eggs and vanilla, mix to combine. Stir in the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Mix in the chocolate. (A mixer or  you hands can be used). Roll the dough into balls and place on a baking sheet lined with parchment. Sprinkle with salt and bake for 12-14 minutes. Enjoy!

(dough can be saved in the fridge for up to a week and the freezer for 3 months max.)
