Publisher Comments:

Wonderful for their easy appeal and magical for the childhood memories they evoke, cookies are the dessert no one ever outgrows. And with The Good Cookie, everyone can enjoy the simple pleasure of delicious homemade cookies at their best. This rich anthology brings together recipes, techniques, tips, and priceless baking advice for more than 250 of the most scrumptious creations ever to emerge from the world of classic cookies — culinary gems destined to inspire every baker and garner raves from cookie connoisseurs.

Trained pastry chef and writer Tish Boyle has designed recipes to indulge every cookie lover's taste and craving — from timeless Colossal Peanut Butter Cookies, Chocolate Chocolate Chip Cookies, and other standbys to wholesome favorites such as Banana Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies and stylish originals such as Triple-Ginger Pecan Biscotti. She helps you quickly master the methods and artistry for every sort of cookie imaginable — drop, rolled, bar, hand-formed, piped, and refrigerator cookies, filled and sandwich cookies, decorator cookies, and specialty savory cookies and crackers — with the help of kitchen-tested advice and invaluable tips throughout the book.

The "Equipment," "Ingredients," and "Techniques, Tips, and Troubleshooting" chapters explain exactly what to do in the kitchen, when to do it, and why. Solutions to common baking problems (What to do with dry or crumbly dough? Or tough, hard cookies?) help ensure an error-proof batch every time. Whether you need to bake something in a hurry, are in the mood for something utterly decadent, or are just looking for a fun activity to do with the kids, you'll find just what you're looking for in the "Cookies for Every Occasion" section at the back of the book.

With its all-star assortment of international favorite recipes plus its wealth of hard-won baking advice, The Good Cookie is the best friend any baker can have. With The Good Cookie, you?ll make every day an occasion to celebrate, and each "little cake" a little masterpiece from the heart.

If you know a cookie baker, definitely buy this for their collection. I've found so many cookie books are just the same old recipes put together with new photos. Tish Boyle has carefully put together a whole new collection here. There are 250 recipes for you to try - ranging from simple to sophisticated. I like that this is a heavy, quality book, though it could use a few more photos.
