5.0 out of 5 stars For cookie monsters March 24 2004
By A Customer
Format:Spiral-bound
I originally bought this book as a gift for my mother. I thought she would enjoy it's charm and it's old fashion recipes. then before christmas I went over to write down a few recipes to bake for christmas. I could have been there for days! they all looked simple and good so I bought myself a copy also. after trying several of the recipes I have found that they are mostly simple and delicious. It seems that no matter what combination of ingredients I have in the house when the mood hits I can usually find a recipe to make. Great book ! and my kids love the pictures ,and the cookies too of course!

5.0 out of 5 stars This has always been my favorite cooky book! Dec 14 2003
Format:Spiral-bound
My mother has made almost EVERY recipe in this book. She has a tattered 1963 copy that has almost 1/2 it's pages sitting loose inside the covers. This is the ONLY cooky book that I use! I was so thrilled to see that it's out in the stores again. I have purchased over one dozen copies for my coworkers for Christmas. It's so nice to have a cooky book that shows pictures of all the cookie recipes. The toffee bars, spritz, thumbprints, cut outs, gingerbread men, gingersnaps, are all excellent. I haven't found a bad recipe yet. It's fun to look at the old pictures with the soda bottles, and milk bottles. Going back to a time and place when times were more simple and innocence was bliss. I highly recommend this book!!

5.0 out of 5 stars The Only Cookie Book You Should Own! Dec 19 2003
By A Customer
Format:Spiral-bound
My Grandmother had this cooky cookbook when I was growing up and I have eagerly anticipated a reproduction of this cookbook. I cannot tell you how estatic I was to find it! This book has EVERY recipe you could hope. I'm glad this is a reproduction and not a "updated" version of this classic cooky cookbook. What makes this book absolutely charming is the whimsical pictures and drawings throughout the recipes, reminding us of a wonderful era. Thank you to the publishers for choosing to reproduce this book!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Treasure for Bakers Dec 30 2002
Format:Spiral-bound
When I was doing my holiday shopping, I was overjoyed to see that Betty Crocker's Cooky Book had been reprinted for the 2002 holiday season. Betty Crocker's Cooky Book was originally printed in 1963. Yes, it's cooky, not today's cookie.
The 2002 reprint includes only two short paragraphs of introduction on the title page. The new paragraphs provide warnings about today's ingredients and food safety concerns. They encourage you to ask your mother or grandmother how to make them if you don't understand the ingredients or the recipes. What a great way to share a family heritage, by baking cookies together!
The cookbook is divided into 6 sections: Cooky Primer, Holiday Cookies, Family Favorites, Quick 'N Easy Cookies, Company Best Cookies, and Betty Crocker's Best Cookies. The Cooky Primer section includes instructions on how to "measure flour by dipping," Necessary Utensils (including a "rotary egg beater"), Baking Hints, and a Q&A section which covers self-rising flour, correcting cooky dough, and how to prevent soft cooky dough.
The Cooky Primer section includes a color picture at the bottom of each page, showing the finished cookies and brownies. On page 11 of the Cooky Primer is a recipe for Butterscotch Brownies. This recipe is my husband's favorite. All the recipe calls for is butter, brown sugar, an egg, flour, baking powder, salt, vanilla, and walnuts. This brownie recipe spells out the secret to baking perfect brownies: "Do not overbake!". My Uncle Glen is a commercial chef, and he taught me that little gem at the precocious age of 10. These brownies have a wonderful butterscotch flavor, and come out of the oven chewy and golden brown.
In the Heritage Cookies section, I baked the Old-Fashioned Sour Cream cookies on page 79.

5.0 out of 5 stars My best Christmas gift ever! Dec 16 2002
By A Customer
Format:Spiral-bound
I grew up treasuring my mom's Betty Crocker's Cooky Book. Being the cooky baker in the family, I remember the countless hours I spent browsing through all the wonderful pages, literally reading our Cooky Book from cover to cover. Through the years mom would loan out her book when it was cooky baking time and some time ago it ended up lost in action. We couldn't find a reprint copy to replace it. It was a family treasure we truly missed. Sure, I had some of my favorite recipes written down and filed away, but I really missed the holiday ritual of browsing through all the beautiful color pages of cookies. This year my sister presented me an early Christmas gift of my very own copy of The Cooky Book. I immediately began browsing its' pages, sharing old cooky baking stories with my daughters. Everytime I see its' cover staring at me from my kitchen shelf, I feel a bit nostalgic as I recall the happy moments throughout my childhood when I discovered yet another favorite cooky recipe. It was the best gift my sister could ever have given me. Now that a copy of The Cooky Book is back within the family ...in my possession... I have been designated the official cooky baker. I have my work cut out for me, but I enjoy the warm fuzzy feeling I impart on my family members when I present them with a gift of their favorite holiday cookies from The Cooky Book.

5.0 out of 5 stars a little update! Dec 10 2002
Format:Spiral-bound
I just received my book after ordering it shortly below my last review and I have to say I am not dissappointed. This is the best book out there with so many of the cherished recipes from the past. Lot's of the old German cookie favorites too that I had forgetton and aren't as popular anymore, at least not with their original names. I am impressed with the fact that it appears to be a reprint also and not a repackaged and changed newer book. I love the recipes in their original form, the pictures as I remember them with the old dated wallpaper in them(I did not have this books, but there were similar pics in my mom's '69 red and white BC book):-) The cookies aren't perfect like today's magazines, but they are as they come out which makes you feel better when yours come out the same as the books. Why even the historical recollections in the book were as they would have been in 1963(the history section and favorite cookie only goes up until 1962). It truly is as if time stood still. I like the reprint so much because I know the recipes are untouched and original.
Well, I am off to make a list now of what we will be baking just for Christmas so I can get some supplies. I can't tell you all how giddy I am--Anyone who wishes to relive their past and remembers this book, or the recipes in it, it is money well spent, even if you only plan to flip through it and stroll down memory lane.
