GRAND RAPIDS (WZZM)- The time is here when people start thinking a head and picking a date to make your holiday cookies.

Chef Michael Dewicki from the Downtown Market stopped by My West Michigan tell us about upcoming classes that make it all easy for you.

He will be doing a holiday cookie demo from the Holly Jolly Cookie classes, which I'm including the description for below. This is an awesome class for anyone with a big family, or who is hosting a party or doing a cookie exchange for the holidays, as you leave with about 100 delicious cookies and no clean-up responsibilities!

Holly Jolly Cookie classes

Join Santa's elves in his downtown Grand Rapids cookie-making shop to make batches of cookies to share with friends and families this holiday season. In this four-hour class, you will make two dozen each of four different cookies: festive shortbread and lime zest drops, dark chocolate and sour cherry medallions, beautiful prune rugelach cookies, and the ultimate cookie bars with white chocolate, macadamia nuts, and peanut butter. When you finish this class you will leave the mess with us, and take away cookies for all!
