The book is broken down into three different types of cookies, drop cookies, bar cookies and specialty cookies. I've decided to break my review into three sections as well. This one is for her drop cookies. There are a ton of recipes in this section and it was honestly hard to narrow down my selection. I decided to make the chocolate-covered strawberry cookies. These cookies will be perfect for our Valentine's Day bake sale at church!
All of us loved these cookies, even Scott who is not a huge strawberry fan.

That was the short version of my review.
To the specifics:
Searching through the index of cookie recipes in this book as a starting point to tell you about many of the recipes I have tried, I realized that I still had 11 pages to go and a full list of fabulous cookie recipes that I have made in my home. This is a treasure in my cooking library. To those who own Camilla's previous books: what could be better than a consolidated hardcover with everything in one spot? To those wishing for more pictures: a picture may be worth a thousand words, but a delectable cookie fresh from the oven is worth a thousand Christmases, children's joys, and shared kitchen experiences to compensate. Stop worrying about the pictures, and BAKE. The cookies will turn out right, because the instructions are foolproof, and there is a lovely and informative introduction to the basics of cooking (from buying an oven thermometer to ensure accuracy, to the meaning of "fold"). I have never come across something so comprehensive, fun to read, and delicious all in one (I'm still trying to figure out how it's delicious simply upon reading, but I need more time to figure that one out).
Whenever I have made one of Camilla's recipes, the results are the same: I always share the goods. The folks I with whom I share inevitably eat an extraordinary number of cookies, and they ask for more. They call, email, or simply demand, straight to my face, "When are you making more cookies?" One student sent me a text message video saying that he would pay me to bake more of these cookies (specifically, the Thanksgiving Cranberry White Chocolate Jumbles). I always credit Camilla with the hard work.Read more ›
Her recommendations for variations are a pleasure and her baking tips at the front of the book (about ingredients, knowing your oven, storing cookies, etc.) are hugely helpful for bakers with all levels of experience. I'm giving a copy to several relatives for the holidays this year.
What every working mom needs on hand for a quick desert fix.
Only reason for the 4 star rating is I wished there were more images of the recipes. Other than that great purchase. Will continue to use for many years.
