I realize that most people who read this blog would probably not be about to go get this cookbook. But just in case there's someone out there who's wondering...it's amazing. I had to put a plug for it on here because it's just that good. Every cookie that I've tried (quite a few!) has been a truly excellent and trustworthy recipe. I have come to value a cookbook that is made by people who extensively test their recipes so that I don't have to worry that something won't turn out.
The cookie pictured is a Monster cookie. There are best-of-the-best recipes for all the classic stand-by cookies and an inspiring variety of original things to try. To name a few: Vermont Maple Cookies, Double-Shot Cappuccino Bars, Tea & Spice Squares, Chai Shortbread, Chocolate-Peppermint Snaps. Yes, this book is becoming my new best friend.
