This December, create a new holiday tradition and enjoy a morning of festive fun as a family during Cookies with Claus at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North. Offered on three consecutive Saturdays December 5, 12 and 19, 2015, children will have the chance to roll up their sleeves to create their own custom cookie creation while listening to holiday storytelling, writing letters to Santa and mingling with Mrs. Claus.
“So many of my best holiday memories – especially now that I am a dad of two young children – are centred around baking, and the sights and smells of the kitchen,” says Executive Pastry Chef Lance Whipple. “During this activity, kids will have the chance to dream up their own signature treat and get involved in the baking process, while spending time together as a family.”
Cookies with Claus will kick off with children making custom mason jar cookies, adding in delectable mix-ins such as candy canes, chocolate, candies and more. Their cookies will then be whisked away to be baked, while the children enjoy a hot chocolate bar with all the toppings, storytelling with Mrs. Claus and writing letters to Santa. While the children enjoy festive activities, adults can indulge in a gourmet coffee bar with seasonal flavours and complimentary snacks. Each child will receive their completed cookie creations, as well as a takeaway cookie mix upon departure to bake later for Santa and his elves to enjoy on Christmas Eve.
Cookies with Claus will run from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon on Saturdays, December 5, 12 and 19. The cost is USD 35 per child; children must be accompanied by an adult, and reservations are required at least 24 hours in advance. For reservations, contact Food & Beverage Administrator Erika Cooper at 480 513 5029 or via email at [email protected]
