Editorial Reviews for this title:
The Original Nestlé Tollhouse Chocolate Chip cookie is ambrosia to most, but it's clear fans of that delectable cookie and chocolate combination just can't resist fiddling with perfection. And perfect they do! Over 100 delicious and inventive variations of that original recipe--from all-chocolate extravaganzas to tempting add-ins such as macadamia nuts, Amaretto, maple syrup, granola, and peanut butter--have been collected here from cookie chefs across the country. In this cookbook laced with sweet bits of chip history, readers will find recipes to suit every taste and be inspired to come up with their own fresh-from-the-oven chocolatey confections.
It's out there somewhere--the ultimate chocolate chip cookie, perfectly baked, perfectly formed, heaped with divine chocolate pieces. In fact, the recipe for that dream cookie may well be found nestled in the pages of The Search for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie. The story behind this cookbook is intriguing. A small guest house in western Massachusetts (well known for its own home-cooked cookies) sponsored a competition to find the best cookie recipe in America. More than 2,600 recipes flooded in, and over 100 of the best grace the pages of this book. Every imaginable cookie variation is here--yogurt, ice cream, honey, pumpkin--even potato chips! Undoubtedly, many of these recipes are family secrets; others have been concocted through experimentation and chocolate chip innovation. Yet the beauty of all of these tasty treats is their simplicity. All that's required is basic cookie dough, mixed with that extra-special ingredient--be it shredded apple for Apple Orchard Chocolate Chippers, or a small cup of Kahlua for the tempting Kahlua Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. Some recipes are strange to say the least. How about Zesty Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies for a truly distinctive cookie? Aside from wonderful recipes, the book also provides handy hints for the storing, mixing, and baking of this favorite indulgence food. --Naomi Gesinger
