Notes about Recipes in this book

  • Rose's crescents

    • Avocet on February 20, 2023

      This is the first recipe I've made from this book. While the instructions were excellent and detailed, the end result was disappointing. The almond flavor was very muted. I think it would have benefited from some almond extract, and possibly, less finely chopped almonds. The instructions to not let the cookies bake to the point of coloring is probably the biggest issue, since a certain amount of browning really develops flavor, and flavor was was seriously lacking.

  • Double ginger molasses cookies

    • cgallary on October 19, 2022

      So good! Fine with chilling in the bowl and using unbleached AP flour and demerara sugar.

    • senzler on November 17, 2022

      I especially liked the crystallized ginger

  • Chocolate sablés

    • bwhip on October 26, 2022

      These were really delicious cookies, very chocolatey with a lovely, melt-in-your-mouth texture. Only issue I had in prep was the quantities of sugar. Recipe called for 54 grams of brown sugar, and 50 grams of granulated - but also said 1/2 cup of each, which is many more grams than that! The 1/2 cup of each seemed more appropriate than the weight, so I went with that, and the cookies turned out great.

  • Oatmeal favorites

    • bwhip on November 14, 2022

      These were really good, with an excellent blend of crispy and soft. I used cup measurements rather than weight, and results worked out fine. I also swapped in more chocolate for the raisins. I was surprised that the recipe only called for 1/2 cup of sugar (brown), but I went with it and they turned out great.

    • senzler on September 07, 2023

      I agree with Lisawillis. I didn’t catch the error and found the cookies so disappointing.

    • lisawillis on November 09, 2022

      Error in weight of key ingredient: oatmeal. On page 9, old-fashioned rolled oats weight states 52 grams and volume 1.25 cups. I poured oats into an empty and tared container on a digital scale and 52 grams didn't look like much. When I measured it out by volume, it was less than one cup. When I put 1.25 cups of oats on the scale, it came to 152 grams. This is a big disappointment for the first recipe I'm trying from this book. It makes me distrust the rest of the book.

  • Cashew comforts

    • fultre on January 02, 2023

      Unassuming homey cookies, don’t spread at all, and have a soft cakey texture with cashew flavor coming through well. I loved them (as I do nearly all cookies); B isn’t a huge fan of cake-like texture. I had salted cashews and was too lazy to follow Rose’s solution, just used them and didn’t add the salt, which worked just fine. Not sure about mixing the cashews with the flour mixture, as it caught in the crevices of the nuts. Though it didn’t seem a problem in the finished cookie. With 2” cookie scoop, bake 5-6 minutes, rotate, then 4-5 minutes more.

  • Melting moments

    • hibeez on December 26, 2022

      I made these with cornstarch, and they were spectacular. Literally melted in your mouth. Can't wait to seek out cassava starch; it's hard to imagine they can be better! They stayed well in a covered container for a week, without needing to re-dust them.

  • My dream chocolate chip cookies

    • jay.moe on January 30, 2023

      This recipe makes a good chocolate chip cookie that's is soft and chewy and a little crisp around the edges. Although it's a good cookie, I don't think it will replace my current go-to chocolate chip cookie recipe.

  • Gingersnaps

    • senzler on August 06, 2023

      Just soso and disappointing. Cannot really taste the ginger. I prefer the Joy of Cooking Ginger Snap to this. Pale cousin to the Double Ginger Molasses cookies (the next recipe in this book, which is fabulous).
