Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Blogger (cookiemadness.net) and Pillsbury Bake-Off grand prize-winner Ginsberg's debut includes cookies, brownies, and bars for celebrating both major holidays and lesser-known events (e.g., Launch of Peanuts Comic Strip, DNA Fingerprinting Discovered). Using categorical indexes (e.g., Bake Sale Favorites, Makes a Great Gift), readers can easily browse recipes by type, pan size, or batch size. The cookies, all photographed in Ginsberg's kitchen, cover a wide range of cultures, regions, and flavors. VERDICT Avid home bakers looking for any occasion to whip up a batch of cookies need look no further.
