       Learn tips and tricks to up your 
          cookie decorating game!


Dawn Mollenkopf, a cookie decorator extraordinaire, will demonstrate how, with practice, you can make your cookies stand out for friends and family or at parties (or onegs). Dawn began decorating cookies as a way to share the holiday season with her co-workers and has been experimenting and developing her techniques for many years. 

When not decorating cookies, Dawn is a professor of Early Childhood Teacher Education at the University of Nebraska at Kearney and a member of South Street Temple in Lincoln. She has led the Central Nebraska Jewish Community for over 20 years. Dawn and HarrietAnn Litwin (Mid-Atlantic 1st VP) originally met through a URJ Kallah/Adult Study Retreat.
