Overview

Chocolate chippers, lemon bars, madeleines, brownies, shortbread, thumbprints, rugelach, biscotti, mandelbrot, and fortune cookies we all love them. We love them even better when they are home-baked. The ultimate comfort food, fresh-baked cookies offer instant reassurance, consolation, and community.

One of the reasons we hesitate to bake cookies is that all too frequently we discover that we don¹t have all the ingredients we need (or we don¹t have enough time to bake them from scratch). Cookie Dough Delights conveniently solves both problems. Its easy recipes will tempt everyone back to the oven with an assortment of delectable home-baked cookies (and a smattering of other mouth-watering desserts), all of which begin with an 18-ounce roll of refrigerated cookie dough from the supermarket dairy case.

 

With little more than a few easy, simple steps, the ordinary can be transformed into the extraordinary. Using refrigerated cookie dough is not about abandoning traditional cookie and dessert recipes; it is a celebration of the options available to bakers today. The ease of working with refrigerated cookie dough also helps bakers of all abilities to focus on the aesthetics of cookies and desserts including fancy decorations and icings if they so choose. Recipes include drop cookies, formed and fancy-shaped cookies, bar cookies, filled cookies, special treats, icings, frostings, fillings, and other extras.

Editorial Reviews

Boston Herald
… as we paged through Camilla V. Saulsbury's ``Cookie Dough Delights'' (Cumberland House, 2004), we found ourselves first intrigued, then hooked. Many of the recipes are unexpectedly sophisticated (ginger-lime biscotti, anyone?), and, except for the cookie dough, Saulsbury uses few processed ingredients. You probably could pass these babies off as from-scratch - just hide the wrappers from the dough logs.
New York Daily News
Just because the weather's warm doesn't mean our appetite for cookies wanes. And in a new book, "Cookie Dough Delights" Camilla V. Saulsbury shares more than 150 recipes for using refrigerated cookie dough to make bars, tarts, spirals, chippers, pies and fruit squares.

This is a nearly foolproof way to end up with a great dessert for a picnic, barbecue or alfresco dinner party. There's no time- consuming prep in a hot kitchen, no laborious creaming of ingredients and chopping of nuts and fruit. Instead, you pick up a roll of dough, be it for sugar cookies or chocolate-chip cookies, and let it double as everything from a pie crust to a shortcake base.

One especially nice feature of refrigerated cookie dough is that the eggs it contains are pasteurized. So if you've got cookie monsters in the house who insist on eating dough no matter how many times you plead with them not to, these doughs are the way to go, at least till the kids are old enough to understand the dangers of salmonella!

My cookie monsters loved the four-ingredient "Chubby Rocky Road Bars" and the "Fast and Fudgy Mini Tarts," made with sugar-cookie dough, chocolate chips, sweetened condensed milk and vanilla extract. There's even a recipe for cookie tiramisu, made with sugar-cookie dough, cream cheese, coffee, rum and whipped cream.

    Easy to follow, fun to read, delicious

    My 12-year-old daughter should really be the one writing this because I've only made one of the recipes (the caramel cashew bars--holy cow, amazing), but my daughter has been happily baking her way through the entire book--so, great book for kids. This is one of the first cookbook introudctions I have read completely--wonderful resource of cooking tips about making cookies. By contrast, I have the Williams-Sonoma cookie cookbook which, though beautiful, has no introduction or tips at all for cookie baking. I bought an oven thermometer at the author's suggestion and found out my oven is about 40 degrees hot, so my daughter and I adjust accordingly now for everything--it's amazing how that changed our success rate with baking. The author is one smart cookie!

    Great Cookbook

    I have not made many Christmas cookies in the past few years, mainly because I felt too short on time. This book was recommended by a friend and I just love it--and I've made 8 different batches of cookies in the past week, for friends and co-workers, and also for us. What a great book!!! Just my own two cents: the directions say for many of the cookies where you mix in flavorings and other extra ingredients to the dough to use a wooden spoon, electric mixer with paddle attachment or your hands. I tried all three ways and found that clean hands is the very easiest and quickest method (just squish in the ingredients). My son helped with the hand mixing, too (he's 8) and loved it. Here's what I have made, all delicious: Caramel Chocolate Pecan Bars, Lipsmacker Lemon Bars (these were the best lemon bars I've ever made--very lemony), Blackberry Cheesecake Bars, Pumpkin Pie Bars, Lemon Poppyseed Petites (these have been a big hit with friends, I think these were the easiest to make, too, only 4 ingredients), Madeleines, Spciy Double Ginger Chocolate Chippers (if you like ginger, you'll really like these), and Eggnog Thumbrints.

    Cookie Dough Delights *IS* Delightful!!!

    I am so happy with this cookbook. I purchased it on a whim from this site when I was shopping for another cookie book. I am so glad that I did, because it is a treasure trove of wonderful recipes and plenty of charm (I love the author's notes for each of the recipes). I also went out and purchased an oven thermometer (the author urges bakers to buy one) and it has completely changed my baking (found out my oven was about 30 degrees hotter than what it read on the dial¿now I set it lower and am getting perfect results). I have already tried half a dozen recipes from the book including drop cookies, a cheesecake (oh my goodness!!! Chocolate-chip cookie dough cheesecake!!!), and the cookie tiramisu which was so easy and out of this world. My favorite so far, though, is the chocolate chip cookie dough-filled brownie recipe. I am going to make two batches for a 4th of July potluck this weekend. I don¿t see how anyone culd go wrong with this one.

    Cookie Dough Delights: More Than 150 Foolproof Recipes for Cookies, Bars, and Other Treats Made with Refrigerated Cookie Dough

    This, to me, is a perfect cookbook. I would recommend this to every cookie lover out there, whether you typically bake from scratch or have never baked at all--you, too, will be thrilled. I think it is one of the most clever ideas for a book in a long time. It is a great one to take to bed and read, has recipes for every occasion, uses ingredients I typically have on hand, the instructions are superb--everything has turned out perfectly, and the cookies are FANTASTIC. The only downside is that I want to make every single recipe in here but I already have several favorites that I have made more than once (e.g., I am in love with the toffee apple cookies--3 ingredients!). What a winner!

    Cookie Dough Delights: More Than 150 Foolproof Recipes for Cookies, Bars, and Other Treats Made with Refrigerated Cookie Dough

    I had read about this book in a newspaper article and was immediately intrigued by one of the recipes listed. It was for a nut and honey-filled thumbprint cookie that you make with the purchased sugar cookie dough that was supposed to taste like baklava. The day I got the book in the mail, I baked those cookies as well as the stacked, packed peanut butter fudge chocolate chippers and took them to a bake sale at work. Both were HUGE hits. My cookies sold out first at the bake sale. The cookies were very easy to make. The baklava thumbprints were very pretty, too. I have to say, though, that I (and everyone else) was gaga for the peanut butter fudge cookies I mentioned above. Ridiculously easy, too, and only three ingredients!!! I will definitely be making them again and again. The other recipes look just as wonderful and I look forward to trying them all. They are simple, with no complex ingredients and the instructions are very clear. Even a first-time baker would have no problem with these recipes.

    Cookie Dough Delights: More Than 150 Foolproof Recipes for Cookies, Bars, and Other Treats Made with Refrigerated Cookie Dough

    I LOVE this book! Great idea to doctor cookie dough. Have used it to make fruit tarts in the past. I bake cookies from scratch all the time, but I also like to buy the tubes of refrig. dough for convenience (and it's easy to bake a small batch since it's just me and my husband now). Ginger lovers will have to try the double ginger chocolate chippers--fantastic. Tried the madeleines last night. Couldn;t beleive how wonderful and easy. This is a keeper! Will definitely get copies for al the grandkids, too.

    Cookie Dough Delights: More Than 150 Foolproof Recipes for Cookies, Bars, and Other Treats Made with Refrigerated Cookie Dough

    I couldn't put this down--the recipes all sound so good! When I ordered it I was expecting mostly drop cookies, but this book has recipes for all sorts of easy treats. They had rolls of cookie dough on sale this weekend for Memorial Day so I loaded up. Can't wait to try more of the recipes (the Texas-size toffee chippers were a huge success--forgive the pun). Took me exactly 4 minutes to 'make' the dough.
