Every time I see a new cookie cookbook, I cringe – just how many kinds of cookies and brownie recipes does one person need? It seems every cookie cookbook has all of the basics, and plenty of recipes for banal, unexciting variations. However, every once in a while a true cookie connoisseur comes out with a cookbook that features unique, innovative recipes. 100 Cookies: The Baking Book for Every Kitchen, with Classic Cookies, Novel Treats, Brownies, Bars, and More, Sarah Kieffer’s latest cookbook, is different from the norm, and bakers will find that almost every recipe is one that they want to try. It’s interesting that Kieffer is a self-taught baker – one of us (albeit exceedingly talented) – and works on her recipes until they turn out how she wants them, which, after baking from this excellent book, is also how I want them.
The regulars are here: chocolate chip cookies (three ways), Snickerdoodles, Dozens of brownies, chocolate, gooey, cakey, swirled, and blonde, as well as several kinds of bars, and over-the-top fancies to blow guests away. New, innovative cookies and bars that are mouthwatering are included, such as Grapefruit Cake Bars, Citrus Pie Bars, and Lemon oat bars. There are swirled cookies, macarons, and fillings and frostings. The instructions are easy to follow, and suitable for both beginning and experienced bakers. There are enough cookie choices to keep home cooks happy and baking for months.
This cookbook also includes one of the most important aspects – beautiful photographs. It’s no fun to try to bake something that you aren’t sure what it is supposed to look like.
If you are looking for a good book full of mouthwatering, delicious cookies, this is the one you want to pick up.
