There are 6 chapters in this book.
Chapter 1: Cookies in the Know~ basically equipment and tricks for all cookies in the book.
Chapter 2: Everyday cookies~ cookies and bars that are fairly easy to bake.
Chapter 3: Party cookies~ gourmet and tea cookies that look like great eye candies.
Chapter 4: Occasion cookies~ meaning like for specific events like weddings and showers or birthdays. I think that this are was my favorite!
Chapter 5: Holiday cookies~ just what it says. There are roll outs and pinwheels and nicely decorated (not with just icing) cookies.
Chapter 6: Christmas~ includes gingerbread houses and international cookies. great photos!
Then at the end of the book are a couple of pages of basics and templates.
To me this is the best cookie book buy for me of the year and I don't think that I will be buying another one for several years unless I buy it from this author. Great looking cookies and seemly easy directions. This is my kind of book, because it has all the resources in one book. I would definitely recommend this to my friends! By the way if you didn't know in this review after every chapter it was my synopsis of the chapter not the author's. I hope you find this book as good as I did!
But, well. The actual recipes are something else...
I'm currently on a mission to find a seriously good crispy, crunchy, crumbly chocolate chip cookie. So I tried the Toffee Chip Cookie recipe out of this book.
Oh my god. They smelled fantastic while they were in the oven , even though I skipped the toffee. I was in HEAVEN when they were fresh out of the oven. I think I ate five cookies in three minutes. My whole family swooped into the kitchen like a bunch of seagulls and ate half the first batch before the second pan was even out of the oven.
I was sure I had an instant hit. I was sure I'd found my new favorite cookie cookbook.
I was wrong.
Oh my goodness, was I wrong.
See...since I wanted to make the cookies for sweet snacks throughout the week, I took the rest of the first batch and the second batch, and put it away in a Tupperware tub, thinking they'd be fine for at LEAST a few days. That's how long all my other cookie recipes last (until we finish eating them, obviously).
The next morning I saw two half-eaten ones on a plate beside my dad's coffee machine. That's a terrible sign, since he loves baked treats. But I figured maybe he'd grabbed them as a breakfast pick-me-up and didn't have enough time to eat them.
Then I got two for myself, and realized almost immediately why he hadn't finished his.
Overnight, they had hardened up until they were well past the point of inedibility and literally nothing could soften them back up. Cold milk, hot coffee, hot tea, being slammed against the countertop...nothing.Read more ›
