The Cookie School Story

"Baking is the new Quilting Bee"

Dr. Gowan- The Cookie Professor

I am a retired teacher who has created decorated sugar cookies for decades. I find great joy in the art of baking, especially with girlfriends. Our grandmothers attended to domestic tasks in a social setting when they used to go to a friend' s house to help her make quilts for keeping her family warm in winter. We have come a long way since Quilting Bees but if I have a bad day, a little butter and sugar  therapy with a girlfriend is all I need. As I approached teacher retirement, everyone expected me to bake cookies full time.  While I could have been quite content doing that, I began to worry that I was never going to get to tell anyone anything ever again. When my passion for baking collided with my desire for teaching others to make their own sugar art, The Cookie School was born.  Welcome to my virtual kitchen. Bring your coffee, dream up a design, grab a rolling pin and let's create!
