this is the best dessert cook book i ever used...they take an ordinary boxed brownie mix and turn it into a baked gastronemic delight...you will never go back to making store bought mixes after using this book...and you'll never want to go to another bakery either, cause, now, you can do it all yourself...I made the peanut butter brownies and the mint frosted, chocolate glazed brownies and the longer i had them the better they tasted...better than any other recipes I ever made or bought! you wont be disappointed with this book..It's alot easier than you thought! You just need the right recipes...I am buying one for my sister too...

This is an amazing cookbook. Most of the recipes are very simple, but taste like you've put a lot of time into baking them. Everything I have tried has been delicious, but the Caramel Delightful Bars are INCREDIBLE! I have made them multiple times, and they are always gone in minutes.

Great and easy recipes. Made at least 5 different types of cookies for Christmas. They were all a big hit. Everyone mistakenly now thinks I`m a great baker. Little do they know.

This cookbook has some terrific, easy to make cookie recipes and made a great gift for my daughter who is always looking for something different for her annual cookie exchange. There are so many wonderful new cookie ideas in this book, and we're both looking forward to trying them over the coming months and years.

Getting back into baking with my daughter during her visits. Her being ADHD & ADD, This HELPS her concentrate on completing tasks (because of the list of products needed & step-by-step instructions) on how to make & bake the cookies. Has had a large problem with completing anything, but when she's with me doing baking, completes cookies without wandering off. Thanx.

I've made a few of these recipes. They are good, some are ok. Not great reviews or comments from family.
They prefer the regular recipes instead of the shortcuts. I will use both depending on what is needed.
Overall, book is good.

The recipes are easy enough, however, would have loved to have way more pictures of the finished products. Hope that future books will have a picture with each recipe.

I love this book! It offers tons and tons of ideas for different cookies for all tastes and styles, plus they all start with a cake mix, cookie mix, brownie mix or refrigerated cookie dough. I love to bake and am no stranger to making things from scratch but I have the time energy to try many more recipes if some of them start with an easy base. If you like the idea of "semi-homemade" then this book is for you!
