Cookies for Grown-Ups Hardcover – December 1, 2012
''Kelly Cooper's Cookies for Grown-ups is bold and quirky, savory yes, but sweet, too, and full of surprises. Her creations pair with cocktails and wine; one sandwiches a chocolate habanero after-kick between orange-vanilla layers, another links pear and blue cheese.'' -- Gael Greene, InsatiableCritic.com
''Kelly Cooper isn't the first baker to come up with savory cookies but she might do it best, for example, in kebab cookies or in one that combines the flavors of pesto. Her sweet cookies also dazzle taste buds with unexpected flavors: chili in a chocolate-hazelnut confection or pumpkin seeds in a spice cookie. The proof is in the baking, and the eating.'' -- Sylvia Carter, ex-Newsday columnist, dining guide, Raleigh/Durham
''Ms. Cooper's inventive names and unique flavor combinations beckon us to dive into her book and begin baking. Her recipes are a map to a baking adventure as rewarding as eating the little treasures at its end.'' -- Nancy Olson, Pastry Chef, Gramercy Tavern, New York City
''Baking cookies isn't known as the manliest thing to do in the kitchen but with the flavor combinations that Kelly Cooper has put together, Sundays at my house are now all about football, beer and . . . grown-up cookies!'' -- Chris Milano, Foodie Adventures, San Francisco
''Looking for something different for entertainment ideas? This cookbook is it!...Not only made of sweet stuff only, some of these recipes used peppers, cheeses, veggies and spices...I loved the drink partnering ideas, as well.'' -- Naomi Blackburn, The Pub & Grub Forum Blog --Various Sources
Many of Kelly Cooper's most inspired cookies for grown-ups have surprises you might have never considered. The flavor of thyme added to chocolate is something you have to experience to appreciate, and her savory cookies are also revelatory. Word is that no one is better at cocktail cookies than Cooper. Try her Antipasto cookie, featuring bits of Italian salami and cheese. You may never go back to oatmeal raisin. --Boca Raton Observer
Cooper's collection of cookie recipes will show you that there is a not-so-sweet side to cookies, and it's pretty darn good. It's time to be mature about our cookies and start acting like grown-ups, so make some of Cooper's savory combinations and start the conversation. ---Anne Dolce, Dailymeal.com
Cookies for Grown-ups is a cookie jar full of ideas...and will inspire home bakers to branch out from their beloved sweet cookie favorites to a treat like Dillicious (brie, cucumber, dill and lemon) for their next adult get together. --Holly Andres, L.A. Daily News
Not that long ago the most unique ingredients to push the cookie envelope were sea salt and bacon...but that s kid stuff compared to what Kelly Cooper has created for her recent book, Cookies for Grown-ups. She has introduced a whole new way of making a nibble and a nosh into something phenomenal. I plan to eat my way right through the book enjoying each original taste and flavor. ---Kate Lawson, The Detroit News
Cooper has turned out a volume of imaginative sweet and savory cookies, each with a suggested drink pairing. ---Kimberly Jackson, New Jersey Star Ledger
In Cookies for Grown-ups, author Kelly Cooper reinvents the cookie for the adult palate and suggests adult beverage pairings for each of her more than 80 intriguing recipes for savory and sweet appetizer, snack, and desert cookies. --Alison Highberger, Bend Voice
This is the ultimate cookbook for men and women who like cookies and for the people who love friends and family enough to bake cookies for them. --Goodreads
Author Kelly Cooper's cookbook, Cookies for Grown-ups has a number of killer recipes for sweet and savory cookies. Her Refrescante (cornmeal, parmesan cheese, cream cheese and Jalepeno peppers) is one of the world s great cocktail snacks. -Max Jacobson, Las Vegas Seven
I highly recommend this book for the baker seeking inspiration, or to the male pal who thinks baking is just for ladies. Gentlemen, this book has so many Monday Night Football treats that making them won't get your man-card revoked. ---Rhiana Walker, ConciergeatNetGalley.com
Each year I do a massive amount of Christmas baking for friends and a few for Santa too. This year I used a recipe from a new Cookbook, Cookies for Grown-ups by Kelly Cooper. Her cookies go way beyond the chocolate chip standard and offer a variety of unique ideas...Santa, If someone leaves some of these delectable treats for you,. Then you owe me, big fellow. ---Becca Owsley, Kentucky News Enterprise --Various Sources

The title may say "grown-ups", but my children and their friends have begged me to make them again. In fact, I'll be making a couple of batches of "Familiar Memory" cookies tomorrow -- one as a gift for a young teen and another as a hostess gift to bring to a grown-up party.
This year I won't have any trouble finding a special gift for my friends -- I'll be giving them this book, "Cookies for Grown-Ups", along with freshly baked Grown-Up cookies.
