Class Experience

Every week, students will need to read the recipes, watch the video lessons, answer questions, create their dish, find Ollie, and post a photo or video of their dish on the discussion board. Students can have fun with their photos or make a "cooking show" video describing their creations. 
Students will need common baking supplies such as baking sheets, bowls, a rolling pin, a spoon/spatula, etc. Parchment paper or silicone baking mats are helpful but not required. Small cookie cutters are needed in week 3 and students can choose whatever design they would like. If your student just wants to learn how to make the designs, you could purchase premade dough and color it. Students will need gel coloring for the dough, not liquid coloring. Gel coloring is more concentrated and won't add moisture to the dough. Wilton or AmeriColor are some good options. Almost all colors can be made from blue, red, and yellow so you don't necessarily need an entire set unless you would like to forgo mixing colors.

Ingredients needed: 
Vanilla icebox cookies - granulated sugar, light brown sugar, salt, unsalted butter, egg, vanilla extract, and all-purpose flour. 
Sable - egg, unsalted butter, granulated sugar, salt, vanilla extract, and all-purpose flour.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be preparing dishes at home and may need to use the stove, oven, microwave, knives, and/or small appliances. Young students may need some parental help. Please review the recipes every week to be aware of any allergy concerns.
