Chocolate Chip Cookies 3 Ways!

Date: Sunday, August 21

Time: 11am - 2pm

Cost: $90


Ashley Whitmore, pastry master extraordinaire, is coming to the mill to teach YOU how to perfect the chocolate chip cookie technique of your dreams.

Chocolate chip cookies, though unassuming on the surface, are often the source of contentious debate. They're a classic dessert & snack option, beloved by many, but there are so many ways to make them. We've narrowed the cookie style debate to three general categories:

1) Do you like yours lacy and crunchy, with thin edges?

2) Maybe you prefer yours ooey gooey and chewy, with unctuous and melty chocolate - the kind best eaten directly from the oven. 

3) Or maybe, just maybe, you like your choco chippies fluffy & cakey - slightly mounded & raised toward the middle, with an airy yet sumptuous crumb. 

If you've already chosen your cookie camp, but don't know how to execute the technique at home to get your desired outcome every time, then this class is for you. It's also totally okay if your cookie camp is "all of the above." This class will cover the technique and recipe for each of these chocolate chip cookie styles, because we all need a tried-and-true chocolate chip cookie recipe at our beck and call. 

In addition to learning the how and why for each of these cookie styles, Ashley is also going to teach you how to incorporate specialty flours into any of these recipes! We'll go over how adding cornmeal, rye, or whole wheat can deepen and enrich the flavor of your batch, and how the flavors and textures of these additions impact your bake. Cornmeal adds a depth of texture and a subtle sweetness, while rye provides a certain "je ne sais quois" to any cookie recipe, especially those involving chocolate. Whole wheat adds complexity of flavor and can make your cookie just a little more filling (though we're not judging for eating more than one... or three.)

Come to this class, and indulge your inner chocolate chip hedonist. We promise you'll leave happy, and with a little bit more knowledge around the versatility of our corn and flour offerings!

Beginners are welcome, and encouraged to attend.

First time rye user

Nothing to compare to but this worked very well. Used King Arthur recipe that included pickle juice. Won’t do that again. Pickle flavor dominated. Looking forward to next attempt at rye sandwich bread

Quality of Excellence!

Hello to whom it may concern,

Thank you for all your extremely hard work and amazing product! I will be looking forward to using your flour again for my future pizza business, Pablo's Square Pizza! My pizza dough tasted better than before. The rouge de bordeaux and tam 105 gave it that nice natural, hearty, and earthiness flavor. I was wondering, but do you sell either one of them in bulk 50 lb bags? Thank you and hear from you soon.
