Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
The prolific authors of the "Ultimate" series (featuring muffins, ice cream, potatoes, candy, and more) provide more than 90 master recipes for delicious chocolate cookies of all sorts, along with hundreds of variations. Recipes are organized alphabetically, from Almond Coconut Cookies to those Whoopie Pies, and each one is accompanied by its own "crunch-o-meter," a symbol indicating its texture, from hard to cakey to fudgy. Sure to be popular, this is recommended for all baking collections. A follow-up to Wilson's Christmas cookie book, A Baker's Field Guide to Chocoloate-Chip Cookies might be more accurately described as a collection of cookies with chocolate chips. Although there are certainly variations on the familiar Toll House-type cookie, many of the recipes are in another category entirely: e.g., Black-Bottom Cookie Cupcakes, Amaretto Almond White Chocolate Squares, and Peanut Brittle Chip Bars. As with the first title in the series, "field notes," "lifespan" (storage information), and a color photograph accompany each recipe, and various icons indicate which cookies are best for shipping, fun to make with kids, and so on. For larger collections. Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.

    A Must-Have Cookbook!

    I discovered this cookbook when I was at my friend's house. It was a sleepy Sunday morning, and we wanted to cook something. We stumbled upon this cookbook in her library, and picked a recipe from it to make. The cookies were easy to make, easy to clean up, and easy to eat! I liked the cookies so much, that I bought a copy of the book for myself. Now, any time my family wants to give a gift to someone, we make them cookies from this book. Great pictures, good pointers...this book is the perfect match for any baker of any age.
