Chocolate chip cookies are likely the most popular cookie variety, and most families have a good recipe that they like best. It seems, however, that since there are thousands of recipes for chocolate chip cookies, it makes sense to have a cookbook with recipes that are different and may be better than the family favorite. The Chocolate Chip Cookie Book: Classic, Creative, and Must-Try Recipes for Every Kitchen, by Katie Jacobs is an excellent cookbook filled with recipes for chocolate chip cookies of different textures (cakey, chewy, crisp) and types like bars and squares, drop cookies, shaped cookies, and rolled cookies. There are cookies with peanut butter, caramel, white chocolate chips, caramel, and other ingredients to keep chocolate chip cookie lovers busy baking for months.

While most of the recipes are for different chocolate chip cookies and bars, Jacobs has also included recipes for chocolate chip cookie pies, cakes, cupcakes, cheesecakes, and other unique chocolate chip cookie treats. There are beautiful, professional photographs of almost every recipe; it’s nice to know just what your finished product will look like. The recipes are written in the traditional manner with the ingredients listed first, followed by step-by-step instructions. There are helpful comments at the beginning of each recipe, and there are helpful hints in the beginning of the book.

There are so many good recipes in this cookbook, that I just bought 2 10-pound packages of high quality chocolate chips to make them. Chocolate chip cookie lovers will most likely do the same. This is a cookbook that will make a great addition to any cookbook collection.

Special thanks to NetGalley for supplying a review copy of this book.
