The Perfect Cookie: Your Ultimate Guide to Foolproof Cookies, Brownies & Bars by America's Test Kitchen

Portable, fun to make, easy to gift, and open to countless flavor variations, cookies are everyone's favorite sweet treat. America's Test Kitchen has years of experience making the very best cookies; in The Perfect Cookie, the test kitchen has collected all of that knowledge in one place for the definitive guide to cookie baking. This comprehensive anthology includes kitchen-tested, never-fail recipes for cookie jar classics, in addition to recipes for rich and chewy brownies, fruit-and-crumble-topped bars, quick no-bake confections, holiday favorites, and even candies like fudge and truffles; they're all included in this gorgeous package, with a full-page photo showing off every recipe. And, as only the test kitchen can, there are tips and tricks throughout the chapters, as well as an introductory section to get you started with insight on everything from what makes a cookie chewy versus crispy to what baking sheet you should buy so that your cookies bake evenly every time. The result? The perfect cookie.

★ 07/03/2017
This latest book from ATK is an irresistible offering of 250 cookie, brownie, and bar recipes. A read through the comprehensive techniques section will inspire new and seasoned bakers alike. The various types of cookie-mixing methods explained here, including creaming and reverse creaming, are themselves worth the price of the book. Recipes are exacting and can sometimes feel overly complicated, although there are simple recipes throughout, including for lemon sour-cream cookies, coffee-toffee cookies, and old-fashioned applesauce cookies. A chapter on rolled, shaped, and pressed cookies features unusual combinations of flavor and texture, such as hazelnut lemon curd thumbprints, fudgy peanut butter mousse cups, and cornmeal orange cookies. Twenty types of brownies and blondies, including fudge brownies and butterscotch meringue bars, should satisfy many tastes. There is a terrific selection of bar cookie recipes, which include reliable recipes for classics such as lemon bars and cheesecake bars, as well as for the more innovative pear-cherry streusel bars and white-chocolate raspberry bars. This book wouldn’t be complete without a chapter on Christmas cookies, and the recipes included here do not disappoint: old favorites such as linzer sandwich cookies are well represented, along with new inventions such as eggnog snickerdoodles. This is a must-have for cookie lovers. (Aug.)

This book is very easy to use with excellent instructions and lots of great tips to make all the cookies come out "perfect" each time. I plan to get a copy for both of my daughters for Christmas. All the old favorites with plenty of new recipes to try.
