Course Description

Chocolate chip cookies, peanut butter cookies, sugar cookies, and gingerbread men. Every person has their favorite variety but most people have a special place in their heart for cookies and the memories they carry with them. Some remember their grandmothers' house and decorating holiday cookies with vibrant icing colors while listening to old music, others remember a home filled with the sweet smell of cookies in the oven, and still others think of brothers, sisters, parents, and friends.

Cookies may be an iconic dessert but many people have lost touch with the art of making them. In this course, you will learn how to recapture the spirit of the perfect cookie, how to make them from scratch, and how to share them with family and friends for years to come. You will learn how to pick the right utensils for the task, how to choose your ingredients, how to ensure the desired outcome, and how to perfect a few little twists on classic favorites. You will learn the differences in the chocolates used for cookies and how to work with them. You will learn how to work with different kinds of nuts, and how to pick the right healthy substitutions for any cookie. You will learn the art of the French macaron and how to decorate holiday favorites.

This course is complete with the support of a few wonderfully delicious recipes to impress any guest. Let's get baking!
