If you are familiar with Hilton Head Island in April then you know all about the RBC Heritage Classic golf tournament. The tournament is loads of fun and popular with both golf aficionados and Island residents who love a good time! This year the tournament rolled out something new, a cookie contest!
The Heritage Classic Foundation partnered with our local university, University of South Carolina Beaufort to host the first annual Plaid Nation Cookie Contest and find the tournaments official cookie!
We thought this contest would be an exciting opportunity for our Rays and a great excuse to practice some functional skills in the kitchen…and eat cookies!
We came up with our recipe, the gluten free but still delicious “Peanut Butter Putter” with RBC colored yellow and blue m and m’s. Our friend Chris joined us in the kitchen of First Presbyterian Church and we surprised the Rays with cheery yellow aprons! A day full of baking and fun ensued!
Every adult had a job, and each equally important to the success of our recipe, be it sorting the M and M’s, stirring the dough or washing up after! There were countless opportunities to learn and reinforce daily living skills, all while having fun!
We were thrilled with our final product and submitted it to the competition! Wish us luck!
