From Publishers Weekly:

In her seventh dessert book, Heatter thoroughly updates her James Beard Award-winning 1977 book on cookies (all but one recipe, that for Positively-the-Absolutely-Best-Chocolate-Chip-Cookie, are new). Blending a breezy prose style with precise, clearly sequenced instructions and a boundless respect for her topic, she offers a rounded collection for new bakers and experienced cookie hands. A chapter on techniques and equipment is followed by recipes arranged generally by the methods of shaping cookies, e.g., bar cookies and rolling-pin cookies. Recipes for twice-baked biscotti include meta-healthy Multigrain and Seed Biscotti and three featuring chocolate (one using a candy bar). Among ice-box cookies are dainty Pennies from Heaven, sandwiched with butter cream; drop cookies include a variety of fruit- and nut-loaded hermits and Skinny Peanut Wafers, beloved by Heatter's personal trainer. Recipes for rolled and cut cookies (Pfeffernusse; Espresso Chocolate Shortbread) and those shaped by hand or with a pastry bag or cookie press (Sweet Pretzels; Bittersweet Chocolate Macaroons) suggest holiday fare. Heatter drops names along with rounded teaspoons of dough: Wolfgang Puck eats her cookies, and so does Gianni Versace. But she remains as exacting as the most diligent home-ec teacher when it comes to the baking process, even to packaging instructions. Like her subject, this is an irresistible offering.

From Library Journal:

The Queen of Desserts is back, with lots of recipes for biscotti, drop coookies, icebox cookies, bar cookies, zweiback, and more?even a few crackers and some desserts she couldn't resist including. Heatter's first Book of Great Cookies, published almost 20 years ago, became a classic but is now out of print. This is her seventh cookbook, and she's still passionate about cookies and baking. Once again, she presents recipes written with directness and attention to detail. There are all sorts of cookies here, both fancy and homey, and many are very easy to bake. An essential purchase.
