Who doesn't love cookies? Milk and cookies evoke memories of childhood treats. The delicate cookies served with coffee in so many restaurants provide a small indulgence without excessive guilt. Chocolate chip cookies are as American as apple pie.

In The Complete Cookie, veteran authors Barry Bluestein and Kevin Morrissey present home cooks with a single-source reference for producing the best-ever cookies of every kind: filled, rolled, drop, bar, shaped, pressed, and molded. There are chapters highlighting decadent holiday cookies, as well as those of the healthful persuasion (sugarless, flourless, nonfat, and low-fat). Sidebars offer hints and tips galore on decorating, frosting, cutting, and storing, as well as instructions for homemade fillings, flavorings, and candied fruit. Special sections provide a wealth of essential information on ingredients, equipment, and techniques.

Illustrated with eight pages of glorious full-color photographs, The Complete Cookie is an up-to-the-minute guide for modern cooks. You'll find recipes not only for the classics, including big, chewy chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies, but also novel twists on old-time favorites -- such as chocolate rugalach (out of this world!) and ginger biscotti (divine!) -- to suit sophisticated tastes.

Just reading these pages will be enough to have even timid bakers reaching for the nearest sack of flour.

Review:

The Complete Cookie covers everything about baking cookies. Chatty yet precise, Bluestein and Morrissey explain what equipment works best, describe ingredients you might use for all manner of cookies and provide valuable guidance on technique. The recipes, more than 200, include complex productions and comforting ones. The chapter on holiday cookies includes every occasion from Christmas to Passover. The "Healthy Cookies" chapter is inspired. Cute as a cookie jar, The Complete Cookie offers a charming blend of sophistication and comfort.

From the Publisher:

"Kevin Morrissey and Barry Bluestein are former owners of a cookbook store, so they know what makes a good, user-friendly cookbook." --Bon Apptit
