Rosie's Bakery Chocolate-Packed, Jam-Filled, Butter-Rich, No-Holds-Barred Cookie Book Hardcover – January 9, 1996
From Publishers Weekly
Rosenberg, owner of the successful Boston-based Rosie's Bakery, fears no excess when it comes to baked goods or prose. Home bakers who aren't overwhelmed by recipes that have nearly as many steps as cookies yielded are sure to find something in this exuberant collection to make their hearts beat faster?and not just from cholesterol. Chapters are organized by cookie texture (few people, Rosenberg notes, ever say they're in the mood for a refrigerator cookie). While it may require a legalistic mind to discern the boundary between "Chewy Crunchy" and "Crispy Chompy," it's what's inside that counts. In "Chewy Crunchy," there are 10 kinds of chocolate chip cookies and five kinds of oatmeal cookies, including one with cranberries and orange. "Crispy Chompy" covers more chocolate-chip variations, shortbreads (Toasted Coconut Macadamia Shortbread), Lovely Lemon Crisps, Fresh Ginger Crisps, ground nut-based confections and several recipes for mandelbrot and biscotti. The chapter on brownies and bars is inspired, offering classics and the unexpected like Hazelnut Cranberry Linzers and a delicately grainy Semolina Shortbread Bar. There are also cakey cookies and sandwich cookies, including Triple Ginger Lemon Sandwiches, and tips on mixing, storing and baking. If Rosenberg doesn't inspire readers to pick up their rolling pins, she will certainly leave them craving a local franchise. BOMC/Good Cook selection; author tour.

Like Rosenberg's previous baking book, Rosie's Bakery All-Butter, Fresh-Cream, Sugar-Packed, No-Holds-Barred Bakery Goods Book (1991), this is certainly not for the weight conscious. It is, however, an amazing resource that brings together a great assortment of cookies. Rosenberg's ingenuity shines through in every section. "Why can't cheesecake come in bars or Boston cream pie in cookies?" she asks, delivering more than a few bite-size versions of old favorites. In fact, there's so much here, it may be tough deciding what to bake first. Bakers can choose from 10 varieties of chocolate chippers, an extensive assortment of sandwich cookies (recipes for these aren't always easy to find), a selection of minatures perfect for special occasions, and much, much more. Instructions are clearly written and numbered, with Rosenberg's pleasantly chatty comments restricted to brief headers. Rolled cookies, drop cookies, bar cookies--no matter the preference--there's a version worth sampling here. Stephanie Zvirin

On to the content: Ms. Rosenberg's first book was excellent. This wasn't as good, but it was still much better than other cookie books out there. Why? Well, the recipies are easy to follow, fun to make, and good to eat. On making them the frustration level is nil. It is a refreshing book for cooks of all areas of expertise -- and a great volume to share with the kids. There are definetly some noteworthy treasures in here, worthy of becoming the stuff of family legend.
Like I said, great book. I look forward to getting a shiny new copy so I can see what I'm missing! ;)
Overall I could not recommend this cookbook more highly. The recipes definitely live up to the sumptuous experiences I have had at her bakeries. I only wish they would issue a reprint.
Thank you so very much for writing these 2 cook books.
