Now that thanksgiving has passed tis the season for holiday cookie baking. This is a tradition that I am still getting used to. In England Christmas entertaining is focused on christmas cake, mince pies and savory foods like sausage rolls. You may be offered festive baked goods but they are generally imported traditions from other countries like the German lebkuchen or Italian panettone. Here cookies seem a key part of holiday festivities, entertaining and gift giving and the array of cookies is amazing. Decorated sugar cookies or gingerbread are holiday favorites, but there are a wealth of enticing cookies.
If you would like to expand your own cookie repertoire here is your chance. The Inn at Cedar Falls is hosting a holiday cooking baking class. The cosy Inn is a perfect venue for such an event. After the success of our competition this summer Ellen asked if I would like to host another competition for them.
This hands-on class is led by Joan Heitman, breakfast cook at the Inn. The class runs from 11am-2pm on Wednesday 9th December. Innkeeper Ellen and Joan will carefully select five different recipes for you to make and eat. The class includes instruction, recipes, lunch and a box of cookies to take home. The value is $55 per person but you could make a trip of it and if you want, you can also spend the night and save $25 off the regular rate of a room, cabin or cottage.
This is a great excuse for you and a friend to spend the day exploring Hocking Hills. The class is on Wednesday 9th December so you must be free on that day. The competition deadline is noon on Friday December 4th. Please answer the following questions and email your answers to hungrywoolf @ hotmail . com (Email your entry – don’t leave a comment).
What cooking class is the Inn at Cedar Falls hosting in January?

The winner will be picked at random from all of the correct entries and will be announced on Friday afternoon.
