Hi! My name is Nicole Ferrigno. I'll be joined today by Elizabeth Evelyn, and we're from Paisley Fig Pastry. Today we're going to show you how to bake and decorate holiday inspired cookies from scratch, that are both beautiful and delicious.
We'll first make a super fun stain glass Christmas tree ornament cookie, then a beautiful delicate gingerbread snowflake, and finally a chocolate peppermint sandwich cookie.
You need a couple pieces of specialty equipment to complete these really fun cookies, including a stand mixer, a rolling pin, a baking sheet, a few shaped cutters, including a small round cutter about the size of an Oreo cookie, and a couple of festive holiday cutters, such as Christmas trees, snowman or snowflakes.
You also need a small offset spatula, disposable or reusable pastry bag that's fitted with a pastry tip, either plane or star shaped. So before we begin, a little bit about kitchen safety. When you're working around hot ovens and sharp knives, it's just very very important to be cautious and aware of what you're doing. And clearly if you're working with small children in the kitchen, be sure that they are supervised.
Now, a little bit about myself and Lizzie Evelyn of Paisley Fig. We are both professionally trained, we attended L'Academie de Cuisine's Baking Program, so we have degrees in pastry arts, and between us we have about ten years of experience as a restaurant pastry chefs.
Now, let's go ahead and get started and dive into our holiday baking.
