Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Part of Scribner's "All About" series, adapted from the Joy of Cooking cookbooks, this volume includes dozens of cookie recipes, divided by type: drop, bar, rolled, filled, and the like. The recipes span the traditional-Oatmeal Raisin and Chocolate Chip both make an appearance-to innovative entries like Chocolate-Coated Mocha Biscotti. The recipes are easy enough for even a fledgling baker to follow, and they're accompanied by inspiring full-color photographs. Becker, the grandson of the founder of the Joy of Cooking franchise, includes tips on how to package cookies for travel, how to turn Christmas cookies into ornaments and even how to bake cookies at high altitudes. But the best proof of how all-around useful Becker wants this resource to be is that he includes low fat, and delicious, versions of most of his popular cookies. (Sept.)

Library Journal
This latest batch of spin-off cookbooks from the All New All Purpose Joy of Cooking includes one on a topic that was not covered in that revision. The chapter on canning and preserving, much of which was written by cookbook author Sylvia Thompson, unfortunately didn't make it into the 1997 revision because of space limitations, so it's nice to have it appear as its own book. Like the other "All About" titles, and unlike the big Joy, these all include color photographs, as well as additional material not included in the revision. Canning & Preserving is recommended for all collections on the topic; the other titles are for most libraries. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
