Class Overview

Want to know how to make a cinnamon roll from scratch? You'll learn that and so much more with guidance from James Beard Award-nominated cookbook author Judith Fertig. Start by mastering classic cinnamon rolls and find out the right moment to add cream cheese frosting for optimal gooeyness! Then, create a whole-grain dough with luscious sweet potato filling, and top this treat with irresistible cinnamon pecan streusel. The result is less indulgent but every bit as delicious as the original. Rose petals and black pepper in a cinnamon roll? You'll be a believer when you create this Moroccan-inspired treat. Next, make no-knead dough for an impressive tea ring topped with melt-in-your-mouth cardamom-almond icing. Finally, whip up a buttery chocolate bear claw with cappuccino creme fraiche icing, and finish your class with monkey bread that comes together in mere minutes!
