4-H Baking Workshop a Sweet Adventure

University of Illinois Extension hosted a 4-H Baking Workshop on Monday, February 19.  The workshop included demonstrations and hands-on learning. Youth practiced kitchen safety, followed basic instructions from a recipe, and measured and mixed ingredients. Each participant learned how to make fruit pizza with a sugar cookie crust. They prepared the recipe during the workshop and then were able to take it home to complete and share with their family. 4-H Federation members Tyler and Claire Behme, Taylor Wills, Braylee Gilmore, Madison Dunn, and Anthony Joiner of Carlinville; Allie Helling of Bunker Hill developed their leadership skills by helping assist youth during this baking workshop.


Look for future educational workshops being offered by the University of Illinois Extension, Macoupin County. Questions or inquiries can contact U of I Extension staff at 217-854-9604.
