I have made several recipes from the book and all turned out well. Most of the ingredients are on hand with easy to follow instructions. I have purchased extra copies to give as gifts. You can not go wrong with this book.

Excellent easy to follow recipes that produce mouth watering results. The best thing about this cookbook is the tone - it is as if a friend is sitting with me in the kitchen gently guiding me and bringing me into her confidence. Sampson is a wizard, she connects through each page. I haven't found a cookie yet in her book that my family doesn't love.

I hate cookbooks that have a handful of good recipes and the rest are what were you thinking? recipes. This book has 0 of those what were you thinking recipes! Each one is a great recipe that I'd love to cook. And each one has simple ingredients, and not a lot of ingredients either. I can't stand having recipes where I have to buy every ingredient at the store just to make one thing. This book is perfect! And I love how the author said she tried everyone of the cookies several times and in different ways. She made sure they taste great before putting in the book which I absolutely love!

A senior writer for 'Cooks Illustrated Magazine', Sally Sampson is the author of seven previous cookbooks and the co-author of six more. Now she has added another culinary title to her impressive list: "Recipe Of The Week: Cookies" showcasing fifty-two quick and easy recipes for turning out delicious cookies on a weekly basis all year long. Superbly illustrated with full color photography, this highly recommended and thoroughly 'kitchen cook friendly' collection of recipes ranges from Gingersnaps; Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies; Espresso Shortbread; and Orange Almond Cookies; to Jenny deBell's Snickerdoodles; Annie Fischel's Meringues; Coco Toffee Chunk Cookies; and Almond Coconut Macaroons. Especially recommended for dedicated cookie enthusiasts, "Recipe Of The Week: Cookies" will prove to be an especially popular addition to family and community library cookbook collections!
