Overview

A delectable collection of cookie recipes from New York’s best chefs, pastry chefs, and bakers. Cookies are the perfect end to a wonderful meal. One-bite meringues and macaroons melt in your mouth, while linzers and tuiles are the ultimate fanciful confections. Tracey Zabar has selected distinctly original cookie recipes from seventy-five of the very best culinary talents in Manhattan. Some are the chefs’ personal recipes, while others are the signature creations of top restaurants-Le Cirque, Eleven Madison Park, Gramercy Tavern, Artisanal, City Bakery, Felidia, Daniel, and Blue Hill at Stone Barns are included in this scrumptious mix.
This irresistible array of more than ninety confectionary recipes for the home baker includes butterscotch and oatmeal cowboy cookies from Chef Mario Batali and his son Benno; coconut macaroons from master baker Sarabeth Levine; a chocolate chip cookie invented by Chef Todd English of Olives that combines his children’s favorite chocolate flavors with walnuts; Chef Jason Weiner of Almond’s rugelach; and Eli Zabar’s tempting buttery sugar cookies. There are also international cookies-Jammy Dodgers from England, wedding cookies from Puerto Rico, Kipferl from Austria, and Lamingtons from Australia. And chefs Francois Payard, Andre Soltner, and Daniel Boulud have added artful creations to the plate. This beautifully photographed book will not only appeal to discriminating dessert lovers but also to fans of New York City’s culinary scene, the cookie-swap aficionado, and the bake-sale maven.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

One Sweet Cookie, a calm, graceful book, provides a number of tempting recipes that serve up what they promise.” ~Sharon Kebschull Barrett, New York Journal of Books
 
“Zabar expertly edited the recipes and clearly tried each one herself; they are easy to follow and yield great results.” ~Newark Start Ledger

"When cookie-obsessed baker Zabar couldn’t convince friends to participate in a cookie swap, she orchestrated a virtual exchange, the result of which is this outstanding collection of recipes from more than 50 well-known New York City chefs. With contributions from Dorie Greenspan, Michael Laiskonis, Maury Rubin, Laurent Tourondel, and others, this delightful book is perfect for readers who can’t decide among other recently published titles." ~Library Journal
 
“Every conceivable version of a cookie is covered.” ~Craft Gossip
 
“…Cookbook provides plenty of inspiration. The international array of cookies includes cherished family favorites and signature best sellers from 70 of New York’s best culinary talents. This is a book to buy and keep…” ~Modesto Bee
 
“A pretty book that will draw you in visually at first and hold you with a nice variety of enticing, well-written recipes. The beginner baker can gain confidence and inspiration while seasoned bakers can experiment with old favorites and discover a few new gems.” ~The Kitchn
