Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

"Cookie baking is both art and science," writes author and New York Daily News food editor Black, and she effectively marries the two in her compilation of 50 easy-to-follow cookie and bar recipes. Selections range from the classic, such as Chocolate Chip, Gingerbread Men and Black & White to seasonal fare such as Apple Cobblers and Pecan Triangles. Black's approach to each cookie or bar is straightforward, and she covers every aspect of cookie-making, including tips for packing and shipping. The distinguishing feature of the book, its flip-top design, is also its most frustrating: though it allows the book to act as its own easel, standing upright for easy mid-baking reference, it also makes navigating the book a chore. With no index or complete, centralized table of contents, would-be cookie makers are forced to flip through the entire book, turning it this way and that to find the right recipe. Amid a sea of cookie cookbooks, most of which offer more recipes and an easy-to-use format, this entry comes up short.

The discomfort involved in looking through this cookbook and the awkwardness while trying to use it overshadow the recipes. It's designed to stand up; the covers form a base which supports the inside pages. Well, this is clever, but the pictures and the recipes are on different pages. It's a short book, too, so even standing it's too low to comfortably read while you're assembling ingredients and mixing them. Though the recipes are good, it's not a cookbook you're likely to pluck off the shelf to use or peruse simply because of the poor physical design.

Even with vegan modifications, the cookies come out delicious every time. I use this when making cookies to give as gifts every year and every year people beg for more. There are Post-it notes sticking out all over the place to mark favorites (several are scribbled with notes and math for doubling.)

I love the construction of it because I can set it up on the raised part of my center island and it's nearly eye level.

Whenever I want to bake cookies, I turn to this book and the cookies are delicious every time! It is divided into four sections for each season of the year and is filled with great baking tips throughout, written in an easy to understand and witty way. The photos are also great and make my mouth water!! Most importantly, the cookies turn out great every single time!! Also makes a great gift!

If you're anything like me, and I know I am, you love cookies. This book has recipes to satisfy the cookie lover in all of us. Unfortunately, self control often goes out the window when cookies are involved so be forewarned.
