    The 1,745 cookies, which were baked by volunteers then bagged at the Edmonds home of Maggie Peterson, will be delivered through the Meals on Wheels program to 142 home-bound seniors ages 60 and older in Edmonds, Lynnwood and Mountlake Terrace. The cookies will be part of the meals that the seniors receive just before Christmas.

    More than 1,700 cookies were baked as part of the effort.
