Actually Fabulous Cookie
This is an amazing cookbook. If I had to choose one for cookies, this would be it. There are recipes to suit every palate and they are easy to follow. She hides the oats so well in the chocolate chip cookies that my children (very picky eaters) love them! A definate keeper.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I love to bake, but have never been able to find cookie recipes that turn out the way I expect. Tollhouse Chocolate Chip Cookies just don't do it for me. However, once I picked up this book I knew I had a winner. Every recipe I have tried from this book is fabulous! The first recipe in the book gets comments like: 'These taste like they are from a bakery, not from someone's kitchen!' and 'I've never had cookies that were so good and homemade!' The author makes me look like the best cookie baker in town, thank you Tish Boyle!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book is wonderful. I have tried tons of the recipes in this book, and every single one has turned out to be delicious. I feel that I can make any recipe, and it will turn out wonderfully. I recommend it to everyone I know who loves to bake. This book is a must-have for any cook.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

It's Crunch Time!
If you're the sort of person whose devotion to cookies stops at a stack of Oreos, you may as well go somewhere else: This book is not for you unless you're daring enough to buy it and give it to someone who <bakes> cookies. At that point your horizons will be enlarged. Tish Boyle, of the magazines Chocolatier and Pastry Art & Design, knows her cookies, and she's put about 250 recipes for them in this neat, well-organized book: one to a page, clear instructions, easy to read. All kinds of cookies: drop, rolled, hand-formed, bar types and piped/molded types. Also icebox cookies (aka 'refrigerator' today) and filled cookies. Plain and decorated cookies. There's even a recipe here for Ginger Quakes made with (optional) bacon fat--not a lot but just enough to really make a difference. And recipes for pet cookies like Seafood Cat Cookies and Miss Kitty Dog Biscuits. There are also plenty of handy tips, such as not using a nonstick pan when baking madeleines (they'll be over-browned). Here's my own tip: Get the kids involved and start them young. It's good for them to learn how to do instead of buy, and real home-made cookies are so good they'll be less likely to fall for the kind of junk that stores offer in cellophane packages.Was this review helpful?
