Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Wow. This book might even stop Martha Stewart in her tracks. The cookies are gorgeous and the level of detail is stunning. Instructions include drying time of icing, how to keep metal cookie cutters rust-free, a half-dozen Royal Icing recipes, color palette formulas, plus pages of templates. If cookies are your thing, this book is your lifeline.”

Minneapolis Star-Tribune

“If you've longed to make those perfectly iced cookies you see in bakeries and magazines, there's a new book that will get you from dough to done with minimal hassle…[A]nyone who wants to make beautiful cookies will find [Cookie Craft] jammed with ideas and advice.”

J.M. Hirsch, Associated Press

“A must-have for this particularly driven subset of the baking crowd, by New Yorkers who write about food and have mastered pastry arts. The authors take an A-to-Z approach in planning, creating, storing and shipping decorated cookies.”

Washington Post

“Word to the wise: Thumb through Cookie Craft after eating. Otherwise, the pages packed with sugary confections will turn you into an insatiable cubicle cookie monster. Those who like to get their hands doughy, regardless of skill level, can find a manageable project here.”

Washington Express

"[The] cookies in this book whet the reader’s appetite . . . its tone is one of a helpful friend rather than stern directives."

    Great cookie book for both ideas and instructions - just in the wrong order

    I liked the book very much, when you read the entire book. There are plenty of ideas with beautiful photos to illustrate and the verbage of what technique was. LATER in the book the author tells you what those techniques are and how to perform them. If you read it all, you'll love it.

    When I first started reading the book I was very disappointed because it was say do this technique and do that technique, without explaination. I then went to the index to find where the techniques. I then went to that section of the book and started reading. I read through all the techniques first, then went back to the beginning of the book. I was then able understand what to do.

    If there is a new version of the book published, the author should consider reordering the content.

    Changed my mind about royal icing

    I waqs never a fan of the iced sugar cookies from bakeries - the icing was unremarkable and detracted from the cookie. I volunteered to make a batch of sugar cookies for a children's program at the library and thought I would give royal icing a try at least. This book calmed my fears, gave me options and left me with a better respect for royal icing. The authors gave a variety of hints to help both a novice or an expert baker, all with a sense of humor. A great resource.

    I Love This Book

    While many of the the cookies pictured seem elaborate, the techniques shown in the back can be used to create very easy, simple effects with no icing required -- like making holes or cut-out shapes, or what the authors call 'imprinting' the cookies for details 'like the lines on chocolate cookie bat wings', or even adding layers of dough before baking to create 3-D effects. So, while the full-color photos up front are lovely, don't stop there-- the back of the book 'also in color' is jam-packed with many more great ideas.

    Delicious Fun!

    What a lot of fun. I never thought I could make cookies as beautiful and delicious as this. I am a cookie artist convert. The step-by-step instructions and tips were very well thought out and easy to understand. I can't wait to share this book as a holiday gift for my baking friends and family.

    Beautiful, Amazing Cookies!

    The detail that goes into each part of making these beautiful cookies is impressive: selected the recipe, rolling and cutting, baking, decorating. The timing is perfect for the holidays this year, but as other reviewers have pointed out, there are wonderful ideas for the whole year. Plus it's great that the authors always encourage you to come up with your own personal cookie ideas. Thanks!
