This is one of the best recipe books I have come across. The information is very well presented and designed, the photographs are amazing and mouth-watering, every page you open has a photograph, which I find very helpful in recipe books. They categorize the cookies according to main ingredients, such as nuts, peppermint, chocolate or coconut. It contains a lot of very interesting and easy recipes that I haven't seen in other cookie books, recipes simple enough for the beginner baker, yet the end product looks like it was made by someone with more advanced skills. Very highly recommend this book, if it is the only cookie recipe book you have, it will be all that you will need.

Update: 12/28/2012- Tried the Double Chocolate Chip Cookies and Spice Brownies with Cream Cheese Swirl- amaZING! I wish I could eat this book

Hate reviews where the the writer hasn't MADE anything from the cookbook...but in my case, I just HAVE to point out to future buyers that:
I just bought a copy elsewhere without really looking at the recipes. Now that I have it home and have looked through it, I have some negative opinions:

Too many recipes call for ingreds many of us don't buy or keep: shortening and butter flavored shortening, cookie mixes, etc.

I can see from other reviews here that plenty of people love the assortment of recipes in this book. Lots of gooey bars and peanut butter and chocolate cookies...(I saw at least one that uses boxed brownie mix) might be good for some. Cookies with store-bought caramels and other candies. I dunno. It just all hit me wrong. I wanted cookies that use things I have in my kitchen (or that I make...not so much pre-packed stuff) and not quite so much the condensed milk, store-bought pie crusts, candy, shortening types. I suspect that most of the recipes in this book could be found on bags and boxes of sweet products found in stores. Just sayin...for SOME of us, we can find books we like better for cookies.
