Book Description

Oct. 24 2007
Elaborately decorated cookies fill the shelves of high-end bakery cases, tempting shoppers with bright colors and whimsical shapes. The cookies are beautiful, but buying them in a bakery can be shockingly expensive, and their flavor often doesn’t live up to their appearance. Now home bakers can have their pretty cookies and enjoy eating them too!

Thanks to the clear instructions and practical methods developed by authors Valerie Peterson and Janice Fryer, amateur cookie crafters can achieve bakery-quality design and homemade fresh taste. Cookie Craft gives readers access to the entire world of decorated cookies, beginning with an inspirational gallery of 150 colorful cookies guaranteed to start those creative juices flowing.

The authors go on to discuss ingredients, supplies, equipment and technique. They include four delicious recipes for rolled cookie doughs (Traditional Sugar, Chocolate, Nutty, and Gingerbread) that provide perfect blank canvases for decorating, and, of course, their recipe for versatile Royal Icing.

In the most important section, they share the design techniques accumulated and perfected during hundreds of afternoons spent crafting thousands of cookies. Cookie crafters will learn how to pipe, flood, and sugar their cookies, how to design color palettes that work with every season, how to make cookies stand up in fun 3-D structures, and much more!

Review

“Wow. This book might even stop Martha Stewart in her tracks. The cookies are gorgeous and the level of detail is stunning. Instructions include drying time of icing, how to keep metal cookie cutters rust-free, a half-dozen Royal Icing recipes, color palette formulas, plus pages of templates. If cookies are your thing, this book is your lifeline.”

Minneapolis Star-Tribune 

“If you've longed to make those perfectly iced cookies you see in bakeries and magazines, there's a new book that will get you from dough to done with minimal hassle…[A]nyone who wants to make beautiful cookies will find [Cookie Craft] jammed with ideas and advice.”

J.M. Hirsch, Associated Press

“A must-have for this particularly driven subset of the baking crowd, by New Yorkers who write about food and have mastered pastry arts. The authors take an A-to-Z approach in planning, creating, storing and shipping decorated cookies.”

Washington Post

“Word to the wise: Thumb through Cookie Craft after eating. Otherwise, the pages packed with sugary confections will turn you into an insatiable cubicle cookie monster. Those who like to get their hands doughy, regardless of skill level, can find a manageable project here.”

Washington Express

"[The] cookies in this book whet the reader’s appetite . . . its tone is one of a helpful friend rather than stern directives."

ForeWord Magazine

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book! April 24 2009
Format:Hardcover
This is an excellent book on cookie crafting. I absolutly love it! I've received it two days ago and I already read it and done some of the cookies.It covers all the basics of decorating and it's great for inspiring ''experts''. The pictured cookies are amazing and the book is really fun to read. The authors really know their stuff and the book is filled with precious tips and tricks. It includes a chapter on packaging, sending, selling the cookies and also how to prepare a cookie swap or decorating party. But most of all, I love the pictures, the tips and the recipes (a coupe of cookies and royal icing). Excellent book for beginners, amateurs and experts!

3.0 out of 5 stars old fashion book - not helpful for decorating July 29 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
this book has hardly any pictures which is pretty essential to a cookie decorating book. The front cover is the nicest part of the book. The recipes are ok. Most of the pictures are hand drawn cartoons. Don't waste your money.
