Go ahead, buy the cookie bible. On top of everything else, its as cheap as cookbooks come.
There are hundreds of delicious-sounding cookie recipes in this book, including everything from no-bake bars to drop cookies to elaborately shaped cookies. A wide variety of ingredients are used. The recipes are clearly written, easy to follow, and wonderfully, inticingly illustrated. They are organized by type of cookie (drop, shaped, slice and bake, etc.), and there is a great, easy-to-use index in the back to help you find just the recipe you need.
There are also hints for making your cookies come out great, for storing and shipping, and packaging cookies for gift-giving.
Every recipe I've tried out of this book has been a huge hit!
Some of the cookies have become favorites. The Malted Milk cookies are made with a rich chocolaty cookie dough that contains both malted milk powder and crushed malted milk balls. The Lemon Raspberry Cheesecake Bars have a really good crust made with oats, brown sugar, flour and butter. A layer of raspberry jam sits between the crust and a creamy cheesecake layer that has a touch of lemon zest and juice.
The Czech Bear Paws are cookies sophisticated enough for adults and whimsical enough for children. The chocolate cookie dough is spiced with nutmeg and cinnamon then baked in a Madeline tin. Once cooled, the wide end of the scalloped and ridged cookie is dipped in chocolate and broken almond slivers are pressed into the chocolate to form the claws. A favorite cookie for children is the Peanut Butter Bear which is simply a basic peanut butter cookie shaped into a little bear by pressing different sized balls of dough together. Miniature chocolate chips are used for eyes and belly button, and the result is adorable.
The book is full of good ideas along with delicious recipes. The hardback is sturdy and the paper heavy enough to permit spills to be quickly wiped up without damage. The book lays open by itself except at the very beginning and end of the book.Read more ›
There is a light and beautiful swirl cookie called the Pinwheel Cookie on page #138. They are the perfect compliment to a cup of coffee or tea. My families favorite cookie for the holidays is the Peanut Butter Kisses cookies on page #86. They are a small peanut butter cookie, with a Hersey Kiss pressed down into the center. And everyone's favorite cookie of them all is also the richest one of the bunch, the Peanut Butter Candy Cookies on page #108. These are very large and super decadent cookies made with small peanut better cups and tons of butter.
Each of the cookies in The Cookie Bibles are categorized by how they are made. The categories are:
Brownies and Blondies
Cookies for Kids
This categorization really helps when you want to make more than one kind of cookie at a time. You can pick one section and go though the all the cookies that will use the same preparation and cooking techniques. This saves on time and lets you make several types of cookies using the same time frame. With over 150 great cookie recopies that are traditional and yet fun to make, The Cookie Bible will quickly be your go-to cook book when it's time to break out those cookie sheets!
