Susan Chang, NPR.org

The title of the book "Cookie Love" perfectly captures the content of this book. Written by an experienced and award winning pastry chef, this cookbook is a creative spin on cookie recipes.

The introduction provides a good explanation of Mindy Segal's background and thought process about baking. It sets the tone for how many of the recipes in the book were arrived at through experimenting with variations of ingredients or techniques. Included in many of the recipes are some suggested variations to try with the recipes for the adventurous baker looking for ideas.

The recipes of the book are grouped by cookie type such as drop cookies, sandwich cookies, bars, etc. The book also includes information on where to buy some of the unusual ingredients, thoughts for consideration on what types of ingredients to stock, equipment to use, techniques to employ, and measurement conversions.

While there are recipes that cookie bakers will recognize (e.g. chocolate chip cookies, snickerdoodles) the majority of the recipes in the book take a much more creative spin than what you will find in traditional cookbooks. Examples include citrus and brown butter shortbread, honey peach & honeycomb kolachkes, and smoky bacon candy bar cookies. In general, the recipes are ordered within a theme from easier to more difficult to allow you to work your way up to the more challenging recipes.

The photographs in the book showcase well the ingenuity of the recipes.

If your preferred baking style is to mix together standard ingredients of recipe specified amounts in a bowl and then baking according to instructions, this may not be the cookbook for you.

"Cookie Love," a new cookie cookbook by Mindy Segal of Chicago's HotChocolate restaurant and dessert bar.
I was so excited about getting a review copy of this. I requested it with my sister, a home baker, in mind. This is our combined review.

A cookbook should be made to last for quite a while. (Cookie Love seems to be. A weighty tome, bound in hardcover, with sewn binding so that it lays flat on the counter, or on your knees when you're reading in bed. Yes, cookbooks make good bedtime stories.)
A good cookbook should make you hungry as you read it. (Yes. Indeed. Hungry for raspberry rugelach!)
It should have lots of photos. (Check. Full color and full page.)
The narration- recipes and introductions- should be detailed and conversational. (I loved the personal stories she included. What's the first cookie Mindy distinctly remembers eating? A brownie krinkle, the day her kindergarten teacher came to lunch. When did get get serious in the kitchen? Age thirteen, when she received a KitchenAid mixer as a Hanukkah gift.)

Mindy is serious about baking. It's art, craft, work, love, and science. That's why this book is such delightful reading, and why it will lead to delicious kitchen adventures. There are recipes for every kind of cookie. Drop, sandwich, shortbread, biscotti, thumbprint, and all of them have been taken to new heights. You'll see expected ingredients used in unexpected ways, and you'll see unlikely ingredients used to make new favorites.

Does she call for some things that you may not have right in hand? Yes, occasionally, but there's usually a good reason for it. Goat butter adds a "mild tang," sorghum syrup adds a "rounded sweetness," and Cyprus salt is "assertive and crunchy.

I enjoy baking, especially cookies. I was excited to try a recipe the minute I received this beautiful book. However, I couldn't accomplish my goal without going to the store! While there are some interesting and original recipes in the book that you're not going to find anywhere else, many ingredients are probably not in most of our kitchens. For example, recipes call for slab bacon along with a bacon-chocolate candy bar, unsalted goat butter, halvah, smoked salted almonds, raspberry Framboise jam (recipe included), gianduja, passion fruit, orange blossom water, strawberry and cherry Iambics, and kumquats. Now, if you're looking for unique cookies recipes, have a source for these ingredients, and don't mind a shopping trip instead of starting the recipe, here's your book. However, be aware of the ingredients needed to create these recipes.

I was extremely hesitant to select this book, my kitchen is overflowing with cooking and baking books. Why would I need another one? But when it was the last one left, I took it to be a sign to take a chance on it. Thank you for intervening, fate! It's wonderful, hardback and thick, very sturdy. In her personal introduction, I learned Mindy Segal started much like I did, no formal training and didn't quite stick to the "rules" of baking and still turning out some delicious results. The scope of the recipes is fantastic, everything from a classic shortbread to flourless chunky bar cookies. Some recipes do call for ingredients often not readily available in the average kitchen, however, most of these recipes are perfect for a special occasion which would call for a trip to the grocery store anyways. The strawberry lambic jam is delightful, with more uses than just for cookies if you're creative enough (I'm thinking strawberry lambic jam filled chocolates). I consider myself pretty creative in the kitchen, but these recipes have shown me there's still a world of desserts out there I have yet to create! I'm already planning a cookie buffet for our Yule party this year! I'm excited to test a lot of these recipes in the mean time. I'm also going to go through the "My Cookie Pantry" section again and reevaluate the things I keep in stock in my own kitchen. The personal touch on this book is excellent, it instructs without preaching, and it introduces the world of sophisticated baking with a very down-to-earth subject like cookies. I would recommend this book to someone who just baked their first batch of chocolate chip cookies without burning them and to the seasoned professional with multiple bakeries. There is something to take away from it for everyone.
I received this book for review from Blogging for Books, all opinions are my own and I received no further compensation.
