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.) Copyright 2003 Cahners Business Information.
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.

Meet the Author

Irma Rombauer self-published the first Joy of Cooking in 1931 with the small insurance payout she received after her husband committed suicide during the Great Depression. Suddenly, society wives who used to enjoy a kitchen staff no longer had the money to employ them and began cooking for themselves. The instruction "stand facing the stove" was a bit more pragmatic than we realize. In 1936, the first commercial edition was published by Bobbs-Merrill. Marion Rombauer Becker, Irma's daughter, joined the Joy dynasty and revised and updated each subsequent edition until 1975. That edition was the first after Irma's death and was completely Marion's. Her son, Ethan Becker, has returned the book to the family's voice, revising the 1975 edition for the 75th Anniversary Edition.

Ethan Becker is the son of Marion Rombauer Becker and the grandson of Irma S. Rombauer, the original author of The Joy of Cooking. He attended Le Cordon Bleu in Paris, but learned how to cook from his mom. An outdoors-man, he is a master of the grill and at cooking game. His outdoor gear and survival and combat knives are sold internationally under the brand Becker Knife and Tool. Ethan and his wife, Susan, a writer, editor, and artist, live in East Tennessee at their home, Half Moon Ridge. His website is TheJoyKitchen.com.

    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.)

    You will love this cookbook!!

    I borrowed this book from the public library and had so much fun looking thru it, I ordered 3...one for me and 2 to give as gifts. The authors are very well known, of course, and I loved the interesting information about making cookies. The pictures make it even better. It is fabulous for Christmas baking but good all year long!!

    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.
