Sister Brian Sugar Cookies!

As you may have read in the Summer 2018 Communique, as a special treat for the guests at the AHA Spring Alumnae Luncheon, alums Joan Willenburg Rourke '65 and Sheila Clifford Lind '65 baked over 150 "Sister Brian Sugar Cookies".  They were a hit!  They agreed to share the recipe with all AHA Alums, here it is!  

2 c shortening,  1 c white sugar,  1 c brown sugar,  2 eggs, beaten,  1 tsp vanilla,  4 c all-purpose flour, 1 tsp soda, 1 tsp cream of tartar, 1 tsp salt

Cream shortening and sugars until fluffy.  Stir in beaten eggs, then vanilla.  Sift dry ingredients together and stir in.  Roll in balls, dip in sugar, flatten.  

Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.  Makes about 4.5 dozen.

(Sister Brian was in charge of the AHA kitchen in 1964)   ENJOY!



AHA Alumnae Luncheon was Friday, May 4, 2018

The Sisters of St. Joseph of Carondelet, along with the Academy of Holy Angels were excited to offer an alumnae luncheon to our pre-co-ed Alumnae midday on Friday, May 4. The event was a huge success!   The alumnae were invited to attend AHA's Prayer Service which centered around AHA's Social Justice week.  Afterward, they gathered for a luncheon and a program where our guests heard from our President Shipley and Principal Heidi Foley.  Then senior Kylie Engel gave a student perspective before AHA alumnae Kathleen Blatz '72 (former Minnesotat Supreme Court Justice) gave the keynote.  It was a wonderful time and we were all so honored to have our Angies back on campus!!!
