President's Day Cookies
Harry S. Truman Library and Museum, Lobby
February 18, 2019
10:00 am-11:00 am

Celebrate President's Day with fresh-baked presidential cookies! Visitors to the Harry S. Truman Library and Museum will take a culinary journey through the past few centuries as they sample cookies baked according to favorite recipes of former presidents. Volunteers and staff will serve fresh-baked sweets from the "Presidential Cookies" cookbook while supplies last. Those chosen recipes will be revealed soon. In the meantime, plan to celebrate the holiday with us and, for the price of museum admission, you can take a bite of American history.
