Today I am reviewing a cookbook titled "The 250 Best Cookie Recipes" by author Esther Brody, published by Robert Rose. The ISBN: 978-0-7788-0468-0. This softcover cookbook features 208 total pages with 16 color photo pages. The foodie photography in this cookbook is mouth-watering!
Cookies are usually made with straightforward ingredients and are very versatile. They can be eaten at your leisure, and when you're on the run it's great to grab a few to enjoy later. Perfect for coffee breaks, snacks or desserts, most of these delightful recipes are easy enough for even a novice baker to attempt.
Inside this cookbook you will find yummy recipes such as:
* Dad's Favorite Chocolate Chip Cookies
* Golden Coconut Macaroons
* Mexican Wedding Cakes
* The Refrigerator Cookie
* Cranberry Pistachio Biscotti
* Homemade Ladyfingers
* Delicate Lace Baskets
* Lacy Oatmeal Sandwiches
* Cream Cheese Shortbread
* Original Scottish Shortbread
* and many more!!!
The recipes are broken down into cookie chapters: Drop Cookies, Hand-Shaped Cookies, Cut Cookies, Sliced Cookies, Biscotti, Specialty Cookies, Sandwich Cookies, No-Bake Cookies, Esther's Favorites, Holiday Cookies and Shortbread Cookies. I love that they are broken down like that because I can easily find the type of cookie recipe that I am looking for.
For example...a few days ago the family was hungry for some home-baked cookies. I was really busy and didn't have 3 hours to spend baking. I looked through the cookbook and found the chapter on No-Bake Cookies and made them the No-Bake Granola Peanut Treats (see photo below). These cookies are made on the stove-top and only require 5 ingredients to make them. In less than 15 minutes, I had about 3 dozen cookies made and cooling for them. Later that day, they snatched them up and had them just about gone until I got to them. They were a big hit!
