Ninth Season of Martha Bakes to Premiere on PBS Beginning February 3, 2018

NEW YORK, Jan. 31, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The ninth season of Martha Stewart's Emmy®-nominated cooking show, Martha Bakes, will premiere on PBS stations nationwide beginning Saturday, February 3, 2018 (check local listings). The program will be presented in association with WETA Washington, D.C., the flagship public broadcaster in the nation's capital. Domino® Sugar, C&H® Sugar, and the Pyrex® brand will serve as this season's sponsors.

The ninth season of Martha Bakes takes viewers on a sweet, world-wide, culinary journey exploring treasured cookie recipes from regions in Europe, South America, Australia, New Zealand and more. Each week, Martha will introduce you to culinary experts, legendary recipes, flavorful ingredients, and she'll share tips for decorating, packaging, and sharing the sweet treats.

In each 30-minute episode, Martha will teach techniques for delicious filled, dropped, molded, and sandwich cookies. Recipes include Scandinavia's traditional Danish butter cookies, goose feet from Eastern Europe, Australia and New Zealand's passion fruit melting moments, the Netherlands' caramel-filled stroopwafels, and a Polish Chrusciki—a Kostrya family favorite.

"I'm excited to introduce viewers to these different, delicious cookie recipes that are sure to become new favorites," said Martha Stewart. "I had so much fun exploring and revisiting all of the wonderful recipes featured this season. I am so pleased to continue partnering with our friends at Domino® Sugar, C&H® Sugar, and Pyrex."

"Pyrex®, a trusted ingredient in American kitchens for generations, is proud and pleased to sponsor Season 9 of Martha Bakes. And along with everyone who loves to bake, we can't wait to watch, learn, and make Martha's favorite cookies," said Patrice Varni, Chief Customer Officer, World Kitchen.
