Fancy Schmancy Holiday Cookies

2nd Edition

It’s been more than 5 years since we published the first edition of our Fancy Schmancy Holiday Cookies cookbooklet. Since then, we’ve taught many new and now adored holiday cookies at BAKE!, our hands-on teaching bakery. The annual Fancy Schmancy Holiday Cookie class continues to attract hundreds of folks to bake cookies with us. In this second edition, we include some of the tried and true Fancy Schmancy favorites plus the best recipes of the more recent years.

Zingerman’s Bakehouse: the Cookbook

We see Zingerman’s Bakehouse as much more than a workplace. It’s a community of people coming together, using traditional methods to bake breads and pastries in an environment that supports personal growth and learning. We wrote this book to celebrate the ways we work and the joyful food we create, bringing the Bakehouse into your home with recipes for our most popular items and the stories behind their creations.
