Holiday Cookie Bake and Take

Oh no! Are all the holiday preparations getting you down?? Don’t fret, Nancy’s team will help you get your baking done in no time at all! As always, you’ll take home ten varieties of cookies including: Andes Mint, Lemon Crinkles, M&M, Molasses, Peanut Blossoms, Cherry Poppyseed, Peppermint Meltaways, Holiday Bells, and Peanut Butter Balls. Our new cookie this year is Sprinkled Sugar Cookies! You’ll go home with ten dozen cookies in all.

In this hands-on class you will be working in pairs. You’ll be provided with cookie dough and everything you need to form, trim, and decorate the cookies. Your cookies will be baked for you by Nancy’s team in large commercial ovens. Hairnets and gloves will be provided, but bring your own apron if you like. And most important, don’t forget to bring containers to carry home your ten dozen treats. Please arrive on time and plan on staying the full three hours, as well as assisting with clean-up at the end of class. Due to safety restrictions, and out of respect for the adult attendees, no children are allowed in or near the class. You may send someone in your place if you are ill, cannot find child care, etc. Cookies will not be provided for no-shows. There will be a $14 food supply fee payable to the instructor in class. We are sorry, we cannot accommodate nut allergies in this class.

Instructor

Nancy Burgeson


Nancy Burgeson is a highly sought after instructor who has been teaching for nearly 37 years. Currently she offers classes in over 25 school districts, including her hometown community of Bloomington, where she graduated from Bloomington Kennedy High School in the late 1960's.

Nancy's passion for baking and candy making, led her to Wilton Enterprises in Woodridge, Illinois, where she worked for over 10 years. Wilton is a leader in the baking industry. During that time she won many awards for her duties with the company including being inducted into the Wilton Method Hall of Fame for her teaching skills. She also became a teacher coordinator hiring and training instructors in a 5-state area. Nancy's skills in working with people led her to the Youth and Family Senior Enrichment Coordinator position for the Bloomington Public Schools/Community Education Department. Although she loved her job, she longed to be back in a classroom with adult learners sharing her passions for baking and candy making. After lots of thought, Nancy left her full-time position and pursued her true love of instructing students.

Since then, she has taught a variety of baking and cooking classes, but always comes back to her most favorite which are Truffles, Cake decorating, and her most popular class, Holiday Bake and Take Cookie Bake.

What Students Are Saying:

"This class exceeded my expectations. Nancy was an outstanding teacher."

"Nancy is fun, lighthearted and awesome."
