Meet Stephanie Farrell: The Cookie Wizard of BakeCamp LA Weekend 1

Do you believe in magic? Well, if you've ever tasted Stephanie Farrell's cookies, you'd have no choice but to say yes. Stephanie, the cookie baker extraordinaire, is all set to sprinkle her enchantment on BakeCamp LA Weekend 1 in Hollywood on October 7. Get ready to dive into a world of irresistible sweetness as she bakes her signature Iced Oatmeal Cookies, a nostalgic treat that will transport you straight back to your childhood.

A Cookie Connoisseur with a Twist

Stephanie's journey as a cookie artist began as a fusion of her favorite childhood cookie memories. The result? The perfect Iced Oatmeal Cookie, a delightful amalgamation of different recipes she's meticulously tweaked over the years. It's a cookie that's crispy on the outside, yet wonderfully soft and chewy on the inside. One bite, and you'll understand why it's her personal favorite.

"I love a crispy, buttery thin chocolate chip cookie," Stephanie confesses. "But the one I'm making for the cookie party at BakeCamp LA is a game-changer – the Iced Oatmeal Cookie. Its texture, flavor, and the icing on top make it an absolute hit."

The Secret Ingredient: Oven Calibration

When asked about her best cookie baking tip, Stephanie immediately shares a golden nugget of wisdom. "Calibrate your oven! Get an oven thermometer (they're very affordable). You might be shocked how off most home ovens are, often by 10-25°F."

This simple yet essential step can make all the difference in baking the perfect batch of cookies. No more guessing games when you have a precise understanding of your oven's temperature.

A Heartwarming Cookie Memory

Stephanie's passion for baking and her love for cookies go hand in hand with fond memories. She reminisces about one in particular: "Putting out cookies and milk for Santa (and carrots for his reindeer) and coming downstairs to find just the crumbs on Christmas morning! My little brother and I would deliberate for days on the best kind of cookies to leave for him."

It's these heartwarming traditions and memories that Stephanie channels into every cookie she bakes. They're not just delicious treats; they're edible nostalgia.

A Love for Animals and Two Furry Companions

Beyond her cookie wizardry, Stephanie is a dedicated lover of all animals. She shares her home with two adorable Pomeranians who are always there to provide companionship and, occasionally, a bit of cookie-crumb cleanup duty.

So, if you're a cookie enthusiast, a lover of nostalgia, or just someone looking to indulge in some heavenly treats, make sure to catch Stephanie Farrell at BakeCamp LA Weekend 1: Hollywood on October 7. Her Iced Oatmeal Cookies are sure to cast a spell on your taste buds, leaving you craving for more. And who knows, you might just get to meet her two furry friends too!
