Product description

From Amazon

One could certainly be forgiven for the treasonous suspicion that a cookbook called Great Canadian Cookies would turn out to be nothing more than a pamphlet. But darned if baker, author, and food columnist Pamela Steel doesn't manage to pull off a Snicker Doodle dandy--a confident and breezy collection of almost 200 cookie recipes that manages to cream together patriotism and preheating of the oven. From coast to coast--here defined as Cornwall, PEI's Stained-Glass Window Cookies, to Canmore, Alberta's Mocha Oatmeal Cookies (sorry, British Columbia: there's not a Nanaimo bar in sight on these pages)--Ms. Steel runs the galette from Almond Macaroons to Yule Logs, while her willy-nilly chapters comprise everything from Canuck geography to finalists in the Web's "Great Canadian Cookie Contest" to recipes using peanuts and chocolate chips. The recipes are one-page wonders and delectable demonstrations of the difference between the artistic craft of cooking (allowing "a lot of leeway for sudden bursts of inspiration") and the scientific, weights-and-measures-specific demands of baking. With introductory pages referring to such subjects as cookie history--yes, that Dutch koekje may just have spawned the Linzer square--and the Cookie Commandments (Thou shalt not overmix, "Use pure vanilla extract"), the Great Canadian Cookies recipe compendium is sure to milk a collective sweet tooth. --Tony Mason

From the Back Cover

It’s an indisputable fact that happiness is a warm cookie served hot from your oven.

Great Canadian Cookies celebrates the cookie in all its glorious home-baked incarnations, from sea to sea and bay to border. In her quest for the best, chef Pamela Steel gathered and collected recipes from pastry chefs, bakers, moms, and grandmoms from every nook and cranny of Canada. Pamela’s obsession with cookies ("I never met a cookie I didn’t like") has led her into fascinating territory: cheekily, she explores the history of the cookie (it’s an illustrious one), the science behind the cookie (how it crumbles!) and the changing face of the Canadian cookie.

More of what’s baking:

  • Variations on the chocolate chip cookie
  • West Coast, East Coast, and French Canadian cookies
  • Seasonal cookies
  • And (surprise!) low-fat cookies
