Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Yarnall, a cardiologist, and Wayne, who practices emergency medicine, provide dozens of recipes for people who like to have their cake and eat it, too--without paying the price in diminished health. Preceding every recipe with fat and calorie counts, they unveil breakfast and tea foods (muffins, biscuits, breads), cookies, cakes, pies, yeast breads and sweets incorporating fruits. Their bent: high-fiber, low-fat, low-calorie and good taste. Apricot drops provide beta-carotene; "Pared-Down Pavlova" substitutes yogurt for whipped cream, but doesn't stint on the raspberries. There should be enough chocolate here to tempt, or to sate: "Dr. Cookie Brownies" weigh in at 85 calories per serving; the chocolate cream pie indulges in an instant chocolate pudding mix. This is a good primer for the healthy who would rather veer off the straight and narrow path, but won't. The authors are the founders of Dr. Cookie, Inc., which produces and supplies cookies to commercial clients. Photos not seen by PW. Author tour.

From Library Journal

Dr. Cookie is a now-thriving business started about eight years ago by two physicians after their cholesterol levels skyrocketed. Faced with the prospect of tasteless diet desserts, or no desserts at all, they decided to develop their own. The recipes in their book are not exactly the same as for their commercially reproduced cookies, but all are relatively low in fat and calories. The authors have left enough fat in their desserts to keep them flavorful. In addition to easy cookies of all kinds, there are pies, cakes, fruit desserts, and lots of muffins and quick breads. Sure to be popular.

This book is for anyone who enjoys eating desserts, cookies, breads etc. who also wants to eat healthy and fit into the same size for years to come. The recipes are easy and wholesome. Try the chocolate chip cookies...that recipe alone makes the book worth buying.

So there are LOTS of recipes that sound like delicious cookies, but they drop the dough by TEASPOONS. That is one SMALL COOKIE. I think they're trimmed of some of the fat, but most of the calorie savings is in the fact that the cookie serving size is TINY.

This is one of my all time favorite cooking books. Through good fortune of a business trip to Wisconsin in 1994 I happened upon this book. A quick flip through the pages revealed a brilliant plan for health conscious lovers of cookies, cake and muffins. After buying a copy, reading it on the plane home I couldn't put it down and have enjoyed it ever since.
For me, many of their healthy ingredient ideas carried over into other recipes.
The Oatmeal cookies became a basic in the children's diet. They never cared it was a fiber rich food, they just loved them. The muffins were a regular breakfast food for the days we were up and on the road in a hurry. Muffins made with "carrot cake" type of recipe, disappeared so fast that I was forced to put them on allocation, with each one in snack bags and a owners name. When the chocolate pudding cake came from the oven they formed a line. This was the all time favorite desert from our favorite MD's Cookie Cookbook.
My Grand-daughter is now the latest fan. She aids as a taste tester during our joint cooking sessions. We have agreed that someday we will open one of the other cookie books on the shelf, but not too soon.
You will not go wrong with this book.
