By Tami Brady HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on Sept. 12 2011
Format: Paperback
So very many cookie recipes. Ever since I received my copy of 400 Sensational Cookies, I've been busy experimenting and trying out new recipes. My house smells wonderful and I've got enough cookies here for an army for a month (or my family for a week or so). In the process, I'm pretty sure I've gained some extra weigh as I just can't seem to resist either.

I got 400 Sensational Cookies to liven up my tired cookie baking. Yes, a classic chocolate cookie is great but can get a bit boring. This book does cover a lot of the classics, often with tasty variations. However, I was most interested in trying something new like Tropical Dreams, Cherry Almond Slices, Maple Leaf Cookies, Apple Walnut Cookies, etc.

The best keeper I found was not a cookie recipe at all but one for brownies. Chocolate Fudge Brownies are possibly the best brownies I have ever tasted. I highly suggest freezing these brownies in individual serving sizes so that you can grab one whenever the craving hits. One warning though, they disappear very quickly, almost as if by magic.

Complete, educational, diverse, fun! Aug. 30 2009
By Molly K. Frisbie - Published on
Format: Paperback
This is a fabulous cookbook for many reasons:
1.) Included are easy to read and follow chapters on baking equipment, tools and ingredients. Helpful tips are also included with each recipe.
2.) The layout for each recipe is clean and offers measurements in English and S1.
3.) The photos are tantalizing and inspiring
4.) The recipe list is diverse and interesting, offering classics and new types

Most of all the author is inspired, and obviously has a passion for the subject. A must for any baker!

This is the BEST cookie book on the market. Linda Amendt is a primo cookbook writer, and I sincerely wish all cookbooks were written as well as hers. She is typically thorough, comprehensive, knowledgeable, but also very easy to understand and read. This book includes a great clear discussion of cookie baking equipment, ingredients (yes, there are lots of different kinds of sugar which have different results), do's and don'ts, problems and how to fix them, which cookies ship well, and even how to win cookie baking contests. All the recipes are easy to follow, clear -- and they all sound delicious. There are whole chapters on brownies, chocolate chip cookies, dream cookies, bar cookies, and more. Some are old favorites, some are interesting variations of old favorites, some are utterly exotic adventures, and some are just -- "OOOOOH, that sounds so GOOD". My favorites so far are German Chocolate Brownies,Orange Marmalade Cookies, White Chocolate Chip Cookies (with macadamia nuts and almond extract!), Banana Rum Oatmeal Cookies, Butterscotch Dreams, and Favorite Sugar Cookies. But there's alot more to go, and my family and friends will be feasting throughout the holiday season, and well into the coming year.
Some of the other cookie books on the market are pretentious coffee-table books(does a cookie really have to be a confection that looks like a sculpture?), slapdash (you wonder if anyone actually baked these cookies), or just plain ordinary. 400 Sensational Cookies escapes all those cookbook traps, and is a solid, practical book -- one everyone will actually USE, not put on the shelf to gather dust. I can foresee where my copy will be dog-earred with use, and I might have to buy another copy in a couple years. I'm buying this book for all my cookie baking friends for Christmas. It's the Best!

Sensational is not an overstatement Jan. 5 2010
By M. Berriman - Published on
Format: Paperback
Well written and well researched, this is a cookie cookbook that will please beginners, experts, and those in between. Author Linda J. Amendt starts with the basics, including equipment and ingredients, carefully explaining why one would use flat baking sheets instead of jelly roll pans, to give one example. There are tips on hosting a cookie exchange party, mailing cookies, and even a Cookie Problem Solver section.

All of this would be helpful but it's the recipes that make you want to get in the kitchen and do some baking. The ultimate dark chocolate espresso cookies earned a score of 8 out of 10 from my husband the chocoholic. A friend who tried those loved them but thought the cranberry coconut cookies were even better. There are clear, step-by-step directions, and each recipe has a tip or two, including how to store them (frosted cookies should be layered with wax paper, which makes perfect sense when you think about it). I know I'm going to have fun working my way through the yummy-sounding recipes.

The Best Cookie Book Ever! Dec 31 2009
By M. Michele Brown - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have used lots of cookbooks over the years. Betty Crocker, my families recipe cards, Holiday Cookie Books, you name it. This one tops them all!
The ingredient lists are perfect and easy to read,the directions easy to follow,from Novice to Master, you couldn't ask for more!
There is a great section in the beginning about ingredients, and each section opens with methods to make those type of cookies.
The color photo inserts are a real added bonus, just beautiful.
There is a section for problems,such as if your cookies are too dry,along with solutions.
There is a supply section and even the index is pristine.
I would recommend this book for bakers of all ages, and I know it will become the most treasured resource in your library!
