Cookie Love

Cookie Love: More Than 60 Recipes and Techniques for Turning the Ordinary into the Extraordinary - Mindy Segal, Kate Leahy

Cookie Love is just that, cookies that you can love and they can become your go to recipes. This book has recipes that range from drop cookies to bar cookies, with favorites such as Chocolate Chip and Peanut Butter Cookies. I made the Classic Chocolate Chip cookies and they were to die for! Not only are there recipes but there are tips and what to have as staples in your pantry. You will learn about the different types of cocoa, different dairy products and even a recipe on how to make your own butter. You can learn about any item that you can use in a good cookie recipe, vanilla, cane sugar, brown sugar, sea salt and so much more. Then at the back of the book are the Tricks of the Trade where the author tells us how to measure ingredients, on dough, on baking and decorating cookies.

I think that this cookbook should be in everyones collection. Gorgeous pictures, concise and easy recipes that will be family favorites. I just love this book and intend to make more recipes from it in the future, such as the sample recipe listed below.
