God's Special Time - KAIROS Cookie Recipe
About Kairos Cookies
Homemade cookies are a tangible expression of Christian love and an indication of God's concern for a group of people who seldom encounter either in the course of their daily lives.
Your loving sacrifice will provide "bread" that shines the Light of God's Grace into the darkest corners of Texas prisons.
May God bless your gift of baking!
The types of cookies considered to be acceptable are: Oatmeal, Peanut Butter, Molasses, Chocolate Chip, Ginger, and Sugar.
Cookies should be between 2 inches and 2 1/2 inches in diameter and not more than 1/2 inch thick.
It is very important not to use icing, sugar, or any other type of coating on the outside of the cookie.
The Key Ingredient: Prayer
Pray individually or as a family over the ingredients before and during mixing.
Pray over the cookies as you drop them onto the cookie sheet and bake them.
Ask God to use your cookies as a source of His love to shine on the prisoners and staff on the Kairos weekend.
Pray that each cookie brings the inmate, guard, or warden who eats it closer to God. We want every person to become part of the Family of God.
Packing the Cookies
Bag the "cooled" cookies in quart-sized Zip Lock bags, a dozen to a bag.
Label each bag with the cookie type inside.
After labeling, freeze all the bags of cookies.
