While I'm not much of a cook due to lack of interest, I've always loved baking and my all-time favorite project has always been cookies! Cookies can be as simple or as elaborate as you like, and are always welcome no matter what the occasion!

I was pleasantly surprised when this book showed up in my mailbox, as I had forgotten I'd left my card with the publisher at BEA. I had left my card with several publishers, but Workman Publishing is the only one to have kept their promise of sending me a review copy. Yea Workman!

This title arrived at a perfect time, as I was able to try some of the recipes in time for Thanksgiving. Received nothing but rave reviews, and the recipes I tried were all easy to make! I'm a big fan of drop cookies, but this book also offers recipes for sandwich cookies, bar cookies, pastry cookies, biscotti, and shaped cookies. There's even a section on cookies for special diets (nut-free, wheat-free, sugar-free), which is a great addition.

Each recipe has a picture of the finished product, a list of ingredients, simple to follow directions, and some even offer variations. For instance, I've been making chocolate chip cookies for years, but never thought to add cinnamon and cayenne pepper to spice things up! Can't wait to see the reactions to that cookie!

All in all I think this is a great book for the cookie-lover! Loads of great recipes as well as helpful advice for hosting a cookie swap of your very own. There's even a countdown checklist to help you prepare for the cookie swap. Very helpful! So if you love to bake cookies, I think you'll love this book! Think I'll try the molasses raisin recipe next....

I have many of Lauren's books and was hesitant to order this one, thinking it may contain repeats of other recipes. I was happily mistaken, and really enjoy what I have made so far. Lots of photos, easy recipes with excellent results. It nice that each recipe tells you if it can be made ahead or frozen. Perfect for the holiday baking.

Format: Paperback
I explored my library's catalog for cookie exchange cookbooks and looked at a number of selections but this is the only one I plan to purchase. Some of the other books contained tired old recipes in a user unfriendly format. To be expected from a former pastry chef, the recipes in Cookie Swap! are fresh and the contents are well thought out. This book is a keeper and worthy of space on my cookbook shelf.

Each of the 71 cookie recipes includes a color photograph of the cookie. The instructions are clear and the cookies I prepared - Incredibly Fudgy Brownies, Gingery Chocolate-Orange Slice-and-Bakes and Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies -- were all delicious and ones I will make again. I look forward to systematically working my way through the rest of the book.

Beginning with a chapter on the specifics for organizing cookie swaps the remaining chapters are Swapper's Delight (The Cookie Baker's Bag of Tricks,) Drop Everything (drop cookie recipes,) Raise the Bar (bar cookie recipes,) Best of Both Worlds (flaky pastry cookies,) Refrigerator Madness (insanely good ice box cookies,) Play Dough (shaped and cut cookies,) Slam Dunk (biscotti and Mandelbrot,) Something for Everyone (special diet cookies,) Snack Attack (savory cookies,) Easy Peasy (shortcut cookies) and Beyond Milk (drinks to serve at the swap.)

The back of the book contains a liquid conversion table for Metric and Imperial, a weight conversion table, an oven temperature table for Celsius and gas mark along with approximate equivalents. There is a list of resources for materials and ingredients along with a solid index so recipes can be located by primary ingredient or proper name, etc. This is a paperback book so it won't lay open on its own, so a cookbook holder will be useful.

Format: Paperback
Chattman uses a cleaner and far more readable layout than Joy of Cooking, though perhaps not as many recipes. The instructions give more details, including more specifics about how to prepare the pans. If your teens yearn to be allowed to go wild in the kitchen making cookies, this book fits their needs well.

As a cookie consumer, my greatest temptations are soft cookies, so the chapters on drop cookies and bars hold more interest for me than the rest of the book. The recipes provide reasonable variety, not just redecorations of recipes on previous pages. Many of the recipes are classics, like Chocolate Chip cookies, Peanut Butter cookies, and Oatmeal Raisin cookies. Chattman also includes reasonable variety, like Gingerbread Chocolate Chip cookies, Double Peanut Butter Cup cookies, and Pumpkin Cheesecake Brownies.

I rate cookbooks based on the number of interesting recipes I find. This book lays out 71 recipes in a very usable format, so it's a bit lightweight in a market with some massive competitors.
