Fancy Schmancy Holiday Cookies 2022

fshc

Our most popular class of the year! 

Join us to get into the holiday spirit and make four festive, fancy cookies, worthy of your family cookie plate. It is guaranteed fun and is known to inspire new family traditions!

This year’s cookie lineup has a cookie for everybody. We always try to include nuts, fruit, chocolate, and spice; this year, we added freshly milled flours to the mix, too.

Alfajores
Petite, tender shortbread sandwich cookies. Often filled with dulce de leche, they’re frequently thought of as a South American treat, but they likely originated in the Middle East and were made with dried fruit preserves and rolled in nuts. Our version reflects the South American tradition.  

Sesame Thumbprints
A fun and shockingly good twist on the traditional thumbprint cookie. Buttery cookies coated in sesame seeds and filled with Michigan-made tart cherry preserves make for an irresistible flavor combination. 

Whole Grain Cut-Out Cookies
Rolled sugar cookies made with freshly milled whole grains—both soft white wheat and rye!—and delightfully dressed up for the holidays. A flavorful upgrade on a classic that you’ll find yourself returning to all year long.

Chocolate Orange Ginger Crinkles
A seasonal twist on chocolate crinkles, these soft, chocolatey cookies are warmed up with orange zest and a touch of ginger.
