      These are delicious spice cookies that somewhat resemble a hermit in flavor. Nice and homey. Mine turned out soft and just a little crisp on the edges. I had reduced cloves to 1/2 tsp and subbed cane syrup for dark corn syrup. I wouldn't hesitate to use the full 1tsp of cloves next time. No one flavor dominated. It's a great combination.

Publishers Text

Whether you are a chocolate chip or an old-fashioned gingersnap, this is the only cookie book you'll ever need -- from one of the best bakers of all time.

Maida Heatter is one of the most trusted and beloved cookbook authors of all time. Her recipes, each a modern classic, have inspired extraordinary bakers such as Dorie Greenspan, Christina Tosi, and Smitten Kitchen's Deb Perelman, whose foreword introduces the joy of Maida's cookies to a new generation.

Maida knew that cookies are the key to happiness, and she always kept them nearby: a fudgy, minty Palm Beach Brownie in her purse, neatly wrapped in cellophane, a batch of Absolutely-the-Positively-Best Chocolate Chip Cookies in the freezer, or a box of delicate brandy snaps ready for an elegant gift.

Now, Cookies Are Magic collects nearly 100 of Maida's very best recipes from her "legendary" (New York Times) 50-year career-her crispiest, crunchiest, and most ooey-gooey cookies, bars, and more.

Developed for foolproof baking by anyone, each recipe is written with Maida's warm but no-nonsense instructions and carries her guarantee that it will work perfectly every time. Filled with classic sugar cookies, tart lemon bars, cookie kisses, and chocolate and peanut butter ripples, this is the only cookie book you will ever need.
