Great cookes - and the recipes work

I have never made a recipe from this book that wasn't great and/or didn't work just as advertised. Maida knows how to explain everything you need to know to get it right, and doesn't use exotic ingredients that you won't be able to find in Safeway or your local grocery store. A pleasure to read and use!

Wonderful cookbook - contains my favorite cookie recipe!

Maida Heatter and I share something in common - we love to bake and we love to share our baked goods. Her introduction is entitled "Happiness is Baking Cookies" and I couldn't agree more! This cookbook is wonderful! I probably have a dozen or more cookie/dessert cookbooks, but this one contains my favorite recipe, Moravian Wafers. This cookie isn't just my favorite one to make - I don't think I've ever had a cookie this wonderful anywhere! They are absolutely addictive. They are very unusual, but every time I make them everyone wants the recipe. Maida Heatter's cookbooks are always pretty sophisticated with lots of very specific directions to make the cookies come out absolutely perfect (like using parchment paper and rotating the cookies during baking to ensure they are all cooked evenly). But don't let that keep you from trying some of them. I don't always follow all of the detailed instructions, and they still come out really good, but perhaps not all uniform like bakery cookies. I would recommend this cookbook to anyone who enjoys baking cookies (or someone who thinks it's worth a little effort to eat delicious cookies). My favorite cookie book!

Maida is a goddess

Undoubtedly the BEST cookie book ever. Each and every one as tasty as the one before. Maida is a fantastic cookbook author and her directions are clear and concise, and I am sure that not even a beginner would have a problem following along. I make the 'Big Sur' chocolate chip cookies at my café and cannot make them fast enough! A clear winner.

Not a loser in the bunch!

I'm slowly working my way through the entire book baking up all the delicious goodies. Maida Heatter's recipes are thorough, concise and most importantly they always work. I can't wait for her to put out her next book!

Delicious cookies, from simple to elegant!

Cookies can be found in this book to meet anyone's desires! Maida Heatter includes a wide array of recipes, from the popular biscotti to the elegant sables. Instructions are detailed, and easy to follow. This book is loaded with helpful information, and interesting stories about cookies. Most importantly, the cookies will look like the cookies in the book! My family has enjoyed every cookie I've made from this book
