The New Cookie Plate

The cookie plate, with its cacophony of different shapes, colors and flavors, is a favorite tradition in our holiday baking calendar. This year our platters are piled with Benne Seed Cookies from South Carolina, Gingerbread from Poland, Scottish Spiced Orange Shortbread and Austrian Citrus-Plum Linzer Cookies. As with most things Milk Street, we've added a twist to the expected in each of these two-bite treats, adding new layers of flavor without straying too far from tradition. Join us to learn how, and go home with your own selection of holiday cookies to share.

This is a hands-on cooking class led by Milk Street instructors.
