Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Part of Scribner's "All About" series, adapted from the Joy of Cooking cookbooks, this volume includes dozens of cookie recipes, divided by type: drop, bar, rolled, filled, and the like. The recipes span the traditional-Oatmeal Raisin and Chocolate Chip both make an appearance-to innovative entries like Chocolate-Coated Mocha Biscotti. The recipes are easy enough for even a fledgling baker to follow, and they're accompanied by inspiring full-color photographs. Becker, the grandson of the founder of the Joy of Cooking franchise, includes tips on how to package cookies for travel, how to turn Christmas cookies into ornaments and even how to bake cookies at high altitudes. But the best proof of how all-around useful Becker wants this resource to be is that he includes low fat, and delicious, versions of most of his popular cookies.

From Library Journal

This latest batch of spin-off cookbooks from the All New All Purpose Joy of Cooking includes one on a topic that was not covered in that revision. The chapter on canning and preserving, much of which was written by cookbook author Sylvia Thompson, unfortunately didn't make it into the 1997 revision because of space limitations, so it's nice to have it appear as its own book. Like the other "All About" titles, and unlike the big Joy, these all include color photographs, as well as additional material not included in the revision. Canning & Preserving is recommended for all collections on the topic; the other titles are for most libraries.

I spent half a day just reading through this one - you will be digging out mixing bowls, flour, sugar, butter, baking sheets, and cooling racks after about 15 minutes into this book. Well, what else can you say about the American dynasty of cooks?

The photos are beautiful - if they don't get you, nothing will!

All about cookies - nothing fancy or complicated so it is perfect for someone just getting into baking. Enough extra know-how to help one build on knowledge base and give them the freedom to successfully create in the future. I purchased for my cook book collection, and filed it under books for the kids to use bcz I want them to understand the basics of the ingredients before they use, and potentially waste, ingredients on failed creations. So far it is working like a charm.

I got this book from the library, because when I had moved it was misplaced. When I returned it to the library, the librarian decided to check it out for herself & made some of the cookies, then the other librarians started making cookies. By now, between myself & the librarians, we have made all the cookies ... all were delicious. Many of the cookies are suitable for the holidays.

There are a lot of photographs of many of the cookies. Also, photos of the techniques, which makes it very helpful for a beginning baker. I would strongly recommend reading the Forward as there is a lot of information there. I also recommend the 14 in 1 Master Recipe ... a boon at the holidays, where you only need one dough for 14 cookies. For those trying to diet there are a number of recipes that are reduced fat.

This is the best cookie book I've seen so far. The recipes are simple and I can substitute organic items called for to make things I feel good about feeding my family. The instructions are straight forward and leaves little guesswork. I was using another popular book before, but I found this far healthier and easier to use. No heavy kitchen machinery required.

With my son turning one and shiny red kitchen-aid mixer, I took on baking after previous failed attempts. We've tried the lemon bars, snicker doodles, chocolate chip cookies, sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies and gingerbread cookies. All except for the gingerbread, were amazing! I messed up the gingerbread recipe myself by adding a different ingredient. I've tried other chocolate chip cookie recipes and this has my favorite. My son and family have loved each and every one of the recipes I've tried. This book has helped me become a baker when I wasn't one. Recipes are easy to follow.

This book is just a sample of the original's cookie recipes. It has different recipes instead of the classic versions. Disappointing.
