These cookies will be seriously in-your-face!

A recently opened cooking school in Prospect Heights will teach you to bake, design, and decorate delicious disks of dough this December. Cook Space, an industrial warehouse-turned-culinary studio, will host a “Christmas Cookie Workshop” on Dec. 2 that will lead students through the process of making mouth-watering homemade desserts that then can hand out as gifts to all their friends and neighbors, according to an organizer.

“Our Christmas cookie class will get you prepared for the holiday season,” said Nini Nguyen, Cook Space’s culinary director. “I designed this class with the classic holiday cookie tin that I use to make and give to people in mind.”

The hands-on workshop will teach students to make a wide variety of traditional sweets, including decorated iced sugar cookies, chocolate crinkle cookies, pecan crescents, almond toffee, and peppermint bark. And students will walk away from the three-hour class with more than knowledge, said Nguyen.

“Students will leave with a cookie tin filled with the items they make that day,” she said.

The Cook Space Culinary Studio offers a series of classes designed to help beginning chefs develop confidence in the kitchen, along with workshops focused on specific types of cuisine, including Jewish comfort food, brunch menus, and ramen dishes. Most of the classes at Cook Space are designed for adults only, but the cookie workshop will welcome little ones to the kitchen, said its leader.

“This is a great class to take with your kids and a great way to start a tradition at home,” said Nguyen.

“Christmas Cookie Workshop” at Cook Space [603 Bergen St. between Carlton and Vanderbilt avenues in Prospect Heights, (718) 230–8400,]. Dec. 2 at 11 am. $110.

Reasonable discourse

Carroll Ann from Brooklyn says:
Many of these aren’t even “cookies”. They’re more like small cakes, or big crumbs. If I want cookies, I want them to actually be cookies.
