Nothing says the holiday season like a plate of perfect cookies. So how do you ensure that your cookies this winter season are truly great? With the knowledge and skill from the fine folks at King Arthur Baking Company, of course. In this livestream class, King Arthur Baking Co. instructor Elisabeth Berthasavage will teach you two irresistible cookies that you will make again and again this year and for years to come. You’ll see how the way you incorporate butter—whether it’s cold and cut in or warmed and creamed in—completely transforms the texture of a cookie. You’ll use both cornmeal and all-purpose flour to create one Italian classic and one American mainstay. You’ll get a primer on different shaping techniques: the roll and cut versus the slice and bake. You’ll get inspiration from your instructor on how to customize your cookies with add-ins. And you’ll learn how the pros determine precisely when a cookie is perfectly baked. The lessons you’ll learn in this class extend far beyond the recipes of the day, making you a more confident cookie connoisseur no matter what you’re making.

About your instructor: Elisabeth Berthasavage is a graduate of the New England Culinary Institute in Montpelier, Vermont. Prior to King Arthur Flour, Elisabeth worked as a baker for several Vermont bakeries and was the bakery rounds instructor for the New England Culinary Institute. She loves all things pastry, with a concentration on custom cakes for weddings and other special occasions. Elisabeth's training took her to Germany for a year, where she had the opportunity to focus on modeling with marzipan, and this influence continues to have a real place in her cake designs today. She lives in New Hampshire with her husband and two children.
