On October 23, 2021, Cheryl Harrington taught us how to make her famous Nantucket Cranberry Pie. Cheryl says she learned early that she had flour in her veins. She worked in her parents’ homestyle bakery in Massachusetts before going to college, and she never lost her love of baking. Even during her career with the Prince George’s County Council, Cheryl made wedding cakes, birthday cakes, and other goodies for friends. After years being encouraged to start her own bakery, she opened Shortcake Bakery in 2011 where she creates baked sweet baked goods, savory meat pies, quiches, brunches and more. Cheryl will get us ready for the holiday season with ideas about cookies, pies, and more.
The event was part of the Route 1 Corridor Conversations series organized by Hyattsville Aging in Place, Helping Hands University Park, Neighbors Helping Neighbors College Park, and Explorations on Aging College Park with sponsorship from Maryland Milestones.
