November 4: We Energies Cookie Book event at Miller Park
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The We Energies annual Cookie Book is ready for release. The holiday favorite will be handed out at distribution events across our service territory starting October 31. Signature events take place November 4 at Miller Park in Milwaukee and Fox Cities stadium in Appleton.
This year’s book is a celebration of Wisconsin products: honey, cranberries, cherries, pumpkin, cheese, and of course, milk and butter. The book features 31 recipes provided by bakers, beekeepers, farmers and more. It also includes fun facts about agriculture along with photos of each cookie.
Recipes were sourced from across the state and include Maple Ginger Cookies from B&E’s Trees in Viroqua and a raspberry merengue recipe from O&H Danish Bakery in Racine. Eric Olesen of O&H attributes his recipe, fondly called Aunt Margaret’s Yummies, to his aunt, “a sweet little Danish lady who loved to bake.”
Milwaukee and Appleton’s signature events on November 4 include hot chocolate, cookies, and photos with Santa’s reindeer, as usual. The distribution at Miller Park this year is moving to the Sausage Haus this year.
The We Energies Cookie Book is a tradition that dates back to 1928. Company home economists put together the first edition as a goodwill gesture for customers to encourage them to use their appliances.
