Bakehouse American Cookies

Ginger Cookies baked at Zingerman's in Ann Arbor

Want to start with the basics and learn to make great-tasting classic cookies? We’re ready to teach you in this hands-on cookie class, whether in-person or virtual! We'll start with our chewy molasses cookies with crystallized ginger called Ginger Jump Ups. Next, we'll bake our sunny Sky’s the Lemon Cookies; the name alone makes us happy! And to really round it out, we'll make the Bakehouse's beloved cinnamon- and ginger-spiced Graham Crackers; they’d make even Reverend Graham, the original cracker's namesake, a convert! This class includes lots of hands-on practice at the creaming method, a useful baking technique. Upgrade your cookie jar and join us for American cookies!

For some storied history on the origin of graham crackers and the Bakehouse's unique take on this American classic, head to the Bakehouse's website and read: "Graham Crackers: A Childhood Favorite Grows Up!"

You’ll leave BAKE! with our recipes, the knowledge to recreate them at home, and all the cookies and graham crackers you made in class.

We'll end the in-person class with a cookie and graham cracker tasting and you'll go home with great coupons.
