5.0 out of 5 stars Cookie compendium Feb. 20 2011
I was looking for a cookie cookbook to send as a gift to a friend and this book seemed to have a broad range of cookie recipes. Since the book was a gift I did not have the opportunity to try out the recipes personally.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book! Jan. 7 2008
By Alicia Raul - Published on Amazon.com
This is an awesome cookie cookbook. Just the perfect size for the kitchen shelf. The pictures are terrific, and I especially enjoy the variations to the standard cookie recipe...what a great idea! I tried several recipes for Christmas this year and received compliments on all...especially the meringue cookies! Buy one for yourself and one as a gift for your favorite baker!

1.0 out of 5 stars 500 Cookies, Not Recommended July 2 2008
By Charlotte S. Guthrie - Published on Amazon.com
If you are hunting for 500 different cookie recipes, I do not recommend this book. There are maybe 200 recipes. Each has three variations that could easily be done by any novice or amatur cook. Such as Variation I, For Cinnamon Cookies, Add 1 Teaspoon Cinnamon; Variation 2 - For Ginger Cookies, Add 1/2 teaspoon ground Ginger; Variation 3 - For Orange Cookies, add 1 Tablespoon Orange Zest. Then, the variations for nearly all the recipes are the same. The ingredients are missing for some of the recipes. For example, the first recipe I wanted to try was for the Cinnamon Stars. In the directions, will tell you to add water. Water is not listed as one of the ingredients and no where within the recipe does it tell you how much water to add. I also bought 500 Cupcakes, sure hope I am happier with that book than I am this one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Great start for basic recipes March 13 2010
By Lehigh History Student - Published on Amazon.com
The 500 Cookies provides 125 recipes for a variety of cookies and bars for everyday use to special occasions. Each of the 125 recipes has four minor variations that tweak the item into a different version by adding a new flavor profile. Overall it is an average cookbook but for those who are skilled in baking like my wife it provides base recipes that can then be used to make their own variations while using this as a widespread springboard and because the recipes are chosen for easy variations they lend themselves to creating your own as well. We have only found a few recipes to be a little vague on the directions but overall have not had too many problems with this book. Overall well recommended for those that are looking for a lot of cookie recipes that can be built on.
