How To Make Cookie Jar Favorites brings you a collection of well-tested recipes for all-time favorite cookies -- from chocolate chip, peanut butter, and molasses-spice, to snickerdoodles and marble icebox cookies. One of a unique collection of beautifully hardbound, single topic cookbooks from the editors of Cook's Illustrated. After months in our test kitchen, and over 2,500 cookies baked, we have come up with recipes that are guaranteed to work every time. How To Make Cookie Jar Favorites shares our discoveries of which ingredients to use...and when to use them. We tasted the difference between butters and other shortenings, discovered when to use baking powder instead of baking soda, and found out how to choose between different types of sugar. A must for anyone who loves baking traditional American cookies.
