    This cookie book is the BOMB!

    If you want to learn how to bake really good cookies, I mean really, really good cookies, this is the book for you. I have been baking since I was knee high to a grasshopper and along the way have learned lots of secrets to baking fantastic cookies! This is the only book I have ever purchased that describes in detail/precisely how to bake 'em RIGHT! Because baking (unlike cooking) is a science and all the steps do matter.
    There are also lots of great recipes for very yummy cookies! I have a copy for myself and always keep an extra one on hand for a special gift. You will not be disappointed with this book, if you buy only one book on baking cookies, this is it!

    I also recommend The Joy of Baking Christmas Cookies (The precursor to this book, now out of print. It's great because the ingredients are listed with both weights and measures and I'd rather weigh my ingredients.)

    There is joy to be found in cooking!

    I love the Joy of Cooking series of books and own quite a few. I am a cookie cookbook collector and happened upon this one at my local B&N, I am so glad that I did. I prepared quite a few of these receipes for my Christmas give-a-ways to friends, customers, co-workers, relatives, etc. and every receipe was easy to follow and rendered great results.
