This is really a little gem of a book. It has wonderful pictures and you can see they took their time to take care of the graphics (as usual with Chronicle Books).
It is clear that it was written with the beginner baker in mind, therefore it is very easy to follow the recipes, but it is a nice addition to anyone's cooking library! It is divided into several chapters, each devoted to one kind of cookie, and the introduction to each chapter is really chockfull of information about the different steps of your creation, in fact they contain all the tips you ever dreamt of! Some recipes include interesting variation that you can easily try, once you get the hold of it. It includes all the classics (there is a section on Chocolate Chip Cookies and one on Shortbread, one on Meringues and Macaroons and more), so it is good for all those people that are looking for easy, foolproof recipes for the old staples (with a twist), but if you are looking for new original creation, you should think about something else.
Personally I found great cookies, that got me a reputation as "artist baker" when I gave my creations at Christmas! The gingerbread cookies and the snappy sugar cookies were big hits, together with the chocolate swirl meringues (easy, really easy and yummy!)
I'm really glad I found this book, as it has the no-fuss, super tasty cookie recipes I was looking for. Thanks, Ms Cullen!

There are so many books about cookies that it's very difficult to tell what's good and what's not. Despite its simple title, I reach for this book when I'm in the mood to make cookies and/or have a question about them.
Of course there is the requisite introduction on equipment, technique, ingredients and storage of cookies. Chapters here include an entire section devoted to chocolate chip cookies, based on whether you like them thin and chewy, thick and chewy, classic, etc. There are loads of variations on the different recipes, as well as helpful tips. There are also delightfully creative cookies like the stained glass cookies, which involve cutting out smaller shapes from a large cookie and melting hard candies inside them.
I have not stopped baking from this book since I bought it, and every recipe has turned out beautifully. This book is recommended for beginners and advanced bakers alike. PS: The Utterly Buttery Shortbread recipe (pg. 61) is to just die for!)

I have way too many cook books and even cookie books at that. This is the first review I've written because I wish I would have bought it sooner!!! It is smaller than some of the best selling cookie books out there, but I was very impressed. But I'd rather have a small book with great recipes and photos and cookies I'm interested in than a huge book with only a few good recipes. It is also informative about techniques and results; I learned quite a bit and I have baking books and magazines galore! The pictures are beautiful and so far the recipes have been great! Simple enough for beginners, but appreciated by this experienced baker. Money well spent!

I've been baking cookies for over 20 years and never before have I ever come across a book as informative about baking cookies as this delightful book. This book helps explain why some cookies turn out chewy, and why others turn out crunchy. There are recipes for various kinds of chocolate chip cookies - classic, thin and chewy, thick and chewy, crisp and crunchy, double chocolate chip, peanut butter, etc. Apart from cookies, there are also recipes for biscotti, shortbread, macaroons and meringues, amongst others. This is not only a book for beginners, it is also a book for the cookie connoisseur.
