McGoo U: February 2017

The key to the heart is cookies. CooKEYS? Valentine’s Day is all about celebrating love and relationships (or the lack of) and there are so many ways to do that through cookies. Valentine cookies can be punny and funny, snarky and sarcastic, admiring or studious, and lets not forget romantic and flirty! This month at McGoo U we are creating a romantic and antiqued esthetic in a simply gorgeous teal and gold palette. You hold the cooKEY to my heart!

Brenda Byrne visits the Expert Lab to show us her fantastic method of rolling out dough, fondant, and crusts. DoughEZ is so versatile and easy to use and I’ve found it particularly useful in keeping my cookies in perfect shape when transferring to the cookie sheet. There are clever ways to use it for perfect results in non-baked goods like Rice Krispy treats and cake pops!

Karen Summers of Karen’s Cookies and the creator and mastermind behind the best cookie party on the planet answers questions and gives great tips on what to expect next month at CookieCon 2017! You won’t want to miss this special edition of “Mixing It Up”.

And every great cookier should have a great cookier name! In After School we use a top secret formula to create your perfect cookie name! It’s kind of like finding your stripper name, but with a PG rating! 60% of the time, it works like every time.

There’s also an “out of this world” cookie design in Smart Cookie, and a great use of that extra teal & gold in “Extra Frosting”. No matter your plans, I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day!
