Martha Stewart's 'Cookies' is a delight to look at with it's beautiful photographs of delicious treats. There is also a brief history of each cookie included above the recipe. The recipes come from all over the world. The instructions for making the cookies are excellent and there is also a section included on how to package the cookies for gift giving. Every recipe looks delicious and certainly the ones I have made so far have been tasty and beautiful treats for my family.

Great book, Inaccurate recipes

I LOVE the Cupcake book but unfortunately this one fell short. I have made at least half of the recipes in the book and have found at least 10 of them to be inaccurate from bake time to ingredients. I love Martha, but some of these recipes are WAY off. :(

    Comprehensive and Beautiful but not for the everyday homemaker

    This book has a wide variety of cookie recipes and decorating ideas and tips. It is beautiful to look at and everything looks GOOD! However, I do find that so many of the recipes are very labor intensive and much more complicated than I would ever do at home on a regular basis. Very good idea book for different ways to shape and present cookies but very limited in terms of recipes I am likely to use. Recipes are more appropriate for a true baker or entertainer. If I am going to that much trouble to make something I want to have more than a plate of cookies to show for it. Good addition for a library or someone who loves to get ideas and try new things.

    Very good

    I enjoyed this book. There are a lot of good recipes in it. There are some that are way too ambitious for me too. However, everything I have tried has been very good.

    Great Book for insecure bakers

    I don't consider myself a experienced baker, so I enjoy Martha's books because they seem very accessible. I find the recipes easy to follow, and most of the ingredients are in my cupboard or easy to find at my local grocery store. When I am looking for inspiration, this book gives it to me. The photography is fabulous, and that is usually what inspires me to make something from the book. There are recipes for every cookie occasion in here. Her books are a little pricey but I am sure I will use this one over and over.
