It's the holiday season again, and you're looking at your calendar and wondering just how many break and bake cookies you're going to buy for that work party and get-together with friends. In case you didn't know, those prepackaged sugar cookies stamped with Christmas trees are getting old. Honestly, they were old last year. James Beard award winner Alice Medrich can solve your dessert dilemma, and she's sharing recipes for sweets that will bring you back from the break-and-bake dark side. Join Medrich at her Chewy, Gooey, Crispy, Crunchy, Melt-in-your-Mouth Cookies class and discover the chewiest, gooiest, and downright tastiest recipes. You'll learn recipes for holiday treats like ginger snaps and cornmeal biscotti, among others. The class is Wednesday at Central Market Plano, 320 Coit Road. Seats are $65 and include Medrich's cookbook. For reservations, call 469-241-8389 or visit centralmarket.com.
