Class Description: 

‘Tis the time of year for the official ‘filling of the cookie jar!” Pastry Chef Nancy Vendetti will get you out of your ‘chocolate chip rut’ this year with several of her favorite holiday treats. Now we would never intend to bash on the good ole Chocolate Chip Cookie…but seriously, there are SO many other amazing cookies out there.

So, let’s start with some cookie-making fundamentals and lay the foundation for making better cookies in your own kitchen then let’s blow the top off the cookie jar with some of your ‘soon to be favorite’ cookie recipes such as Butterballs and Chef's version of the classic Filled Thumbprint Cookie.  Chef Nancy is no slouch in this area since she owned her own bakery AND was a finalist on BOTH Cupcake Wars  and Cake Wars. (Yes she was!)

Spoiler alert: her Italian heritage may make its way into this list of sweets as she shares a couple of recipes that have been in her family’s recipe box for ages.  Come prepared to get some flour on yourself too because you’ll be working alongside Chef Nancy to create a batch of cookies to take home-assuming they make it that far without being eaten!
