Papoose Club Trots Out Cookie Cookbook at Holiday Bazaar
Monday, November 29, 2021


Yes, there will be homemade Christmas cookies by the dozen for sale when the Papoose Club holds its 30 annual Holiday Bazaar this weekend. But the Papoose Club will also have something new this year--a Papoose Club Cookie Cookbook for the DIY bunch.

The cookbook features many of the holiday cookie recipes Papoose Club volunteers have been making since 2006, including Pecan White-Chocolate Oat Biscotti, Pinwheel Sugar Cookies, Flourless Quick Peanut Butter Cookies, Cherry Chocolate Chip Toffee Oatmeal Cookies, Auckland Holly Cookies, No-Bake Salted Caramel Macaroons and Cranberry Pistachio Cookies with Chocolate Drizzle. The cookbook costs $25 and can be pre-ordered at

“We decided to do the cookbook because we were not certain if we’d be able to have the bazaar,” said Papoose Club member Kaz Thea. “It’s got all kinds of cool Christmas cookies with pictures.”

As it turned out, the Papoose Club was able to hold its Holiday Bazaar this year after a year off due to the pandemic.

The Papoose Club’s 30th annual Holiday Bazaar will be held Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 4 and 5, at Hemingway STEAM School, 111 8th Street West in Ketchum. The sale will run from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

Santa has committed to drop in from the North Pole from 12:30 to 2:30 p.m. both days, with Smiley’s Mountain Photo there to commemorate kid’s meetings with the jolly old man by photo. Colla Voce women’s singing group from Wood River High School will sing Christmas favorites at noon Saturday.

This year’s juried arts show will feature refurbished antique sweaters, wool products, soaps, handmade ceramics, hand-blown glass globes, handmade clothing, handbags, textiles, fisherman nets and fly boxes, leather artworks, keychains, purses, belts, jewelry, home décor, metal art and handmade products for the body from more than 50 artists within the region.

Perry’s Restaurant will provide Chicken Tortilla, Seafood Chowder and Vegan Chili soups in the Soup Café. And there will be an online Silent Auction and Holiday Raffle.

“Last year we had to cancel so we are so excited to be able to hold this great event to help our club raise money for kids in the valley,” said Kaz Thea. “We have 50ish vendors, including quite a few new ones—a lot of them local.”

The money raised at the bazaar goes to kids’ causes in the community. The Papoose Club gives between several hundred dollars and $3,000 to each of a dozen groups a year. Recent recipients include the Kiwanis Club, Crisis Hotline, Camp Rainbow Gold, Community Library, St. Thomas Playhouse Children’s Theater, ERC Eco Camps, WRMS Spanish Club, WRMS Robotics Club, Sawtooth Botanical Garden, Hailey Public Library and the Volleyball Club.

The Holiday Bazaar will be the first live fundraiser the Papoose Club has had since the pandemic, with the exception of its Plant Sale at Webb Nursery in May. The Club was able to raise $22,000 through the purchase of a Wagon Days poster collection donated to the club and matching contributions to make up for the loss of this year’s Wagon Days Pancake Breakfast.

The Papoose Club plans to bring back the KinderCup this year after a year’s hiatus due to the pandemic, said Kaz Thea. The children’s race held in early March on Dollar Mountain is a rite of passage for many children in the Wood River Valley.

The Papoose Club also plans to hold the Nordic Cup for kids, provided there is enough snow at the Quigley Winter Park in late February.
