Why you should care: Holiday Cookies is the newest addition to the Artisanal Kitchen series, adapted from Chewy, Gooey, Crispy, Crunchy, Melt-in-Your-Mouth Cookies (Artisan, 2010) by Alice Medrich. Holiday Cookies provides dozens of foolproof recipes for cookies, bars, and savories of all textures, from simple holiday classics like Vanilla Bean Tuiles and Great Grahams to the more decadent Caramel Cheesecake Bars and Chunky Hazelnut Meringues. There are even some delicious savories that can double as hors d'oeuvres at the holiday buffet like Crunchy Seed Cookies and Salted Peanut Toffee Cookies.
We are asking each attendee to make a dozen cookies (based on one of Alice's recipes) to swap at this event, so make your plans early. Join us for this chewy, gooey, crispy, crunch (and super yummy!) afternoon.
