COOKIES

Many great culinary careers begin with cookie baking-one of the easiest and most gratifying kitchen projects, and one "job" for which children readily volunteer. A batch of freshly baked cookies is a supreme crowd-pleaser, and cookies are always welcome in lunchboxes and at snack time. Be sure to keep a stash in the freezer for spur-of-the-moment treats. You don't need a lot of fancy equipment for cookie baking, but proper cookie sheets are recommended. These are rimless pans of various dimensions: 15" by 10" is a good size, but get smaller ones if your oven is tiny. Choose heavy-gauge pans, which won't buckle when heated and cooled. Some bakers prefer doublebottomed ("air-cushioned") pans; these do help keep cookies from burning. For baking bar cookies, you'll also need a 13" by 9" baking pan,as well as an 8" by 8" and a 9" by 9" pan. A pan with square rather than rounded corners is best for cookies. Old-fashioned spritz cookies require a cookie press, which consists of a cylinder that you fill with dough, a plunger, and a selection of perforated plates and piping tips for shaping cookies. An assortment of cookie cutters lets you bake to suit any season or occasion. They can make a wonderful collection to display and to add decorative cheer to your kitchen.

BAR COOKIES

These are the easiest of cookies to make: Just mix the batter, spread it evenly in a pan, bake, and cut into squares or strips. Fancier bar cookies can have a sweet, shortbread-like base and a nut, fruit, or chocolate topping.

    Good Housekeeping Baking a must have!

    I am a Pastry Chef and I also collect cookbooks. I have close to 400 cookbooks in my kitchen. I once read that if you buy a cookbook and get one great recipe from it, It is worth every penny. Well, The Good Housekeeping Baking has numerous great recipes. I have made many desserts from this book and have impressed many clients with the recipes. My favorite and is an excellent dessert is Cardamon Buttermilk Cake. It is a crowd pleaser! Foccacia Bread, Cookies, cheesecakes. They are all great! Sorry to hear about the Coconut Thins.You are right it is not there. I'm sure it is a typo.

    Coconut Thins

    I love the book very much. The only problem I have is with the recipe for Coconut Thins. It calls for toasting the coconut, but then it never says what to do with the coconut.
