Don’t cookies make everything better?

We’ve got two master bakers here to help you perfect your cookie-making skills and expand your repertoire just in time for the holiday season.

James Beard Award-winning chef Dorie Greenspan will sit down with The New York Times‘ James Beard Award-winning food columnist Melissa Clark to spill the secrets of making all kinds of cookies for the holidays. They’ll leave plenty of time to answer all your baking questions and swap some recipes. Plus you’ll get a taste of one of our favorite holiday cookies.

Dorie Greenspan has been called a “culinary guru” by The New York Times and inducted into the “Who’s Who of Food and Beverage in America.”  She created more than 300 cookie recipes before finally publishing Dorie’s Cookies, one of 13 cookbooks she’s written to date including her latest, Everyday Dorie, just out from Houghton Mifflin.

Melissa Clark is a James Beard Award-winning food writer. Her A Good Appetite column appears on Wednesdays in the Food section of The New York Times and NYTimes.com.  Her latest book is Comfort in an Instant. You can follow her on Twitter as @MelissaClark.
