After nearly six months in development, my new Kitchen Club Collection has arrived! Here’s an overview of some of the cookies you can make with my first kit in the collection, which released just in time for Halloween. Complete with stencils, cutters, and even an instructional video, each kit will provide all you need to make wonderfully rich and layered 2-D, and often 3-D, stenciled cookie designs. 

Stay tuned for more holiday releases in October and November! I hope you love my new club and kits as much as I loved designing them for you! – Julia
