The baking phenomenon whips up delicious riffs on the classics and more adventurous offerings (like savory cornmeal olive cookies). There's something for every occasion, from melt-in-your-mouth after-school snacks to fun Christmas cookie constructions. A basics section on doughs, toppings and decoration techniques makes this the cookie foundation every creative foodie needs.

About the Author:

Krystina Castella is the author of Crazy About Cupcakes. She is an industrial designer and professor who designs environments, furniture, clothing, toys, stationery, cupcakes and cookies.

From Booklist:

*Starred Review* There is no such thing as too many cookie recipes. A veteran baker expands readers’ repertoires with well-loved traditional and innovative doughs that, regardless of individual tastes, will make mouths water. Los Angeles industrial designer, professor, and author of Crazy about Cupcakes (2006) Castella dives into her 300 small sweet treats by dividing them by occasion: that is, for every day, for parties, for special occasions, for holidays, and for Christmas. She emphasizes enabling bakers to produce great batters and cookies every time. Tips abound, from fixing too-hard cookies (insert a sliced fresh apple into an airtight container) to recognizing why cookies are too flat (the butter’s too soft). Another area of concentration is on innovation, though American favorites like chocolate chips are well represented, too. Many of her creative concoctions demand advanced skills, such as working with marzipan to generate fruit look-alikes, making a cakelike housewarming invitation, and building a Black Forest brownie ice-cream cake that promises to transform any birthday party. Of course, opening sections capture the fundamentals of cookie making, from tools to techniques, while the back-of-the-book chapter features different doughs, fillings, and frostings. Templates for cookie construction appended. --Barbara Jacobs
