2004 IACP Award Winner for Bread, Other Baking and Sweets Category

Carole Walter, the author of the award-winning Great Cakes and Great Pies and Tarts, now draws on her skills as a master baker and the knowledge she's gained through years of teaching to help novices and old-hands alike bake the perfect cookie every time.

No one can resist a homemade cookie, and cooking up a batch is unquestionably the most popular form of home baking. And Great Cookies is the ultimate compendium of everyone's favorite treat, packed with 200 incomparable recipes, 150 tantalizing full-color photographs, and expert tips and techniques.

Great Cookies begins with a thorough explanation of the basics--necessary equipment, common ingredients, foolproof techniques, and advice on storing, gift-wrapping, and shipping cookies to keep them at their best.

From the wonderful section of Drop Cookies (which includes an amazing array of Chocolate Chip variations) to the enticing and exciting Big Boys, the book offers the best cookies from around the world. Other chapters explore meringues, macaroons, brownies, biscotti, rugalach, and savory snacks. Great Cookies provides something to satisfy every taste and every occasion.
