Although this isn't a brand new cookbook released, I loved the fact that they have published this book in paperback for the new fans, such as myself, who have previously missed out on the older books Ms. Heatter wrote years ago. This book is a compilation of sections from previously published books she wrote.
The recipes I tried out of the 225 classic cookie recipes offered were absolutely delicious. Ms. Heatter gives wonderful step-by-step instructions and I never felt lost or confused by what she had written. Being a cookie lover, this is one of the best cookie cookbooks I've read in a very long time.
I also loved that she included a section on ingredients, equipment and techniques to help out every baker with some tips before they start working on their recipe. Without a doubt, I highly recommend this cookie book to any dessert lover out there and I can assure you that you'll have a hard time picking which recipe is your favorite! This book is definitely one to add to any baker's library.
Inside Maida Heatter's Cookies--now available for the first time in paperback--the "Queen of Desserts" offers 225 classic cookie recipes for drop cookies, bar cookies, icebox cookies, rolled cookies, hand-formed cookies, dessert crackers, ice creams, sauces, and more, accompanied by two-color, line-drawn illustrated pages. This classic cookie collection is certain to inspire a new generation of bakers with its timeless, flavorful recipes that are as delightful to create as they are to taste and enjoy.
