"Over the course of her baking career, Dorie Greenspan has created more than 300 cookie recipes. Yet she has never written a book about them--until now. To merit her "three purple stars of approval," every cookie had to be so special that it begged to be made again and again. Cookies for every taste and occasion are here. There are company treats like Portofignos, with chocolate dough and port-soaked figs, and lunch-box Blueberry Buttermilk Pie Bars. They Might Be Breakfast Cookies are packed with goodies--raisins, dried apples, dried cranberries, and oats-- while Almond Crackle Cookies have just three ingredients. There are dozens of choices for the Christmas cookie swaps, including Little Rascals (German jam sandwich cookies with walnuts), Italian Saucissons (chocolate log cookies studded with dried fruit), and Snowy-Topped Brownie Drops. And who but America's favorite baker could devise a cookie as intriguing as Pink-Peppercorn Thumbprints or as popular as the World Peace Cookie, with its 59 million Internet fans?,"

Cookies are fast and rewarding: they're easy to make and low commitment. If they go wrong, just start again. But really, how often do cookies go wrong?

nice pictures; but if a simple recipe takes 4 pages? that's not simple. tried a few recipes so far, did not turn out as easily as written.

Love everything I have made so far from this book. Easy to follow instructions. Well tested recipe that turns out looking just as pictured.
