Maida Heatter, a long-trusted name in baking, said "Happiness is baking cookies -- especially when they are as delicious as all these are." I cannot agree with her more. Because of time constraints, I tend toward the easier recipes in this book, and there are so many to choose from. My children finish a dish before I can even get to them. There are many, many recipes to try, and they range from simple to sophisticated and sweet to savory. In the end, one needs only one good cookie. But it is nice to know that, with this book, you will have many more favorites from which to choose!
What a wonderful book this is! There is an interactive table of contents and it is organized by the type of cookie, such as Oatmeal Cookies, Peanut Butter Cookies,Nut Cookies. I've been baking cookies for over 50 years and I was able to find several recipes I've never seen before and can't wait to make. I can assure you, there will be some of these cookies appearing in my Christmas cookie trays this year!
Nicely indexed, this book would be great if it were a little better edited. I won't grouse about pictures. A few recipes had accompanying pictures, but I understand pictures for each recipe would add an awful lot to price and file size.I give this 3 stars for the lack of details in several recipes and their directions. And in a recipe for chocolate frosting there is an ingredient I've never heard of. I guess it's some kind of shortening, but what on earth is spry? There's also a recipe calling for 11/1 of some ingredient (I forget what) . Above that on the list is 1 1/2 cup of something else so it's probable the 1 1/1 should be 1 1/2. But there are many recipes with no indication of how much you'll end up with. One or two leave out the oven heat setting or the baking time.In short, this is a book for the experienced baker, or for the novice willing and able to toss out any mistakes. It's a free download. If you're adventurous, check it out, especially the chapter on unusual cookies. Bacon cookies win the prize. No mention of spry there though.
Great book, tons of yummy easy cookie recipes and well organized. I have made some of the recipes from it and every one has been delicious. Great book for novice bakers. Also a fantastic present when added to a gift basket that includes cookies baked from this book.
Love It! Love it! I could not wait to start baking and I was not disappointed with the way the cookies came out. My co-workers loved the end result
This book is great! All of the recipes are things that I would bake they are not weird and off the wall like some baking cook books can be.
I loved the cover of this eBook and I love quite a few types of cookies so decided to give it a try.The author starts out with a detailed section of the do's and don'ts of cookie baking, including the best way to send cookies as gifts and which ones transport easily in the mail etc. That was all good.I did find most of the recipes rather ordinary and predictable though, nothing much new here with new flavoring ideas etc... And as is the case with most cookie recipes, most of these contained large quantities of sugar, something that I would definitely be cutting down on, if I go ahead an make any of these recipes.The unusual cookie section was a bit weird. Making breakfast cookies with cooled strips of bacon and cornflakes in them??? NOT. Pork and Bean Bars...yikes, that one actually made me feel nauseated.Overall though, a BIG selection of traditional type cookies and some that I'm sure will appeal to any cookie lover. Worth a look but it wasn't really a collection I plan to use for my own baking.
The cookies all sound wonderful but the instructions are poor. I think that a novice would find the instructions very confusing. In many recipes there is no direction as to how to get the dough to the cookie sheet. Just mix and bake. No spacing advice in any of the recipes. And in one case there is a cherry cookie recipe with no cherries!
