Vegan Test Kitchen: Three Ways to Chocolate Chip Cookies

$40

with Jinger Howell

Calendar Mar 13, 2019 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

You might be thinking there’s no way a cookie made without butter and eggs can be edible. If you have difficulty imagining a tasty vegan cookie, wonder no more because we are going on a chocolate chip cookie baking adventure! Using mostly organic ingredients, we will create three different batches of cookies, each using a different form of vegan egg, taste test them, and decide which tastes like a real chocolate chip cookie (surprise – they all will). Everyone will receive copies of the recipes because you’ll want to go home and make them for your family. And if we don’t gobble them up before the night is over, everyone will have some to take home to put in their own cookie jars. $10 food fee is included in the cost of the class. No discounts.
