Preface

Introduction

What beats the aroma of freshly baked cookies, still warm from the oven? Only eating them, perhaps. Cookies are the ultimate comfort food and they are hard to resist. Everyone loves cookies and they are welcome any time of the year. Bake these tasty treats for holiday cookie trays, for community bake sales or just for you to enjoy Put them in lunch boxes, bring them to a potluck or savor them with a mug of steaming coffee or a glass of cold milk. Pack them in fancy wrapping for an always-valued gift.

Whether you are an experienced or novice baker, this book will help you to appreciate how easy and satisfying baking cookies can be. The fact that cookies don't take very long to bake — about 10 minutes for most — means you don't have to spend a long time in the kitchen to experience gratification. And you don't need any special equipment — just some good cookie sheets. Another advantage to cookies is they keep well when properly packed. They can be stored at room temperature, often for as long as a week. Many kinds of dough can be refrigerated or frozen and baked later, and most cookies freeze well, which makes them very convenient.

Baking cookies is a great way to get the whole family into the kitchen to enjoy time together. Whatever your tastes, whatever the occasion and whatever your timeframe, I'm sure you'll find recipes in this book that will inspire you to bake. Some recipes, perhaps those that qualify as family favorites, will bring back treasured memories. Others may seem new and - I hope - will inspire you to experiment. Whether you are baking for an everyday or a special occasion, I hope you have fun and enjoy the experience of baking cookies.

Happy baking and happy eating!
