The Good Stuff

* The spiral binding of this is outstanding and oh so practical. Easy to lay open and flat so that you can easily consult your recipe without damaging or getting chocolate all over the book
* Has a space on each recipe for you to make notes - love, love this feature (so did Chef Jeff)
* Nice simple, quick easy to make and delicious cookie recipes
* Easy to follow steps, nice size font, everything spaced out perfectly so you see what you need
* Both simple and more fancy type cookies - lots of variety
* Nice tips, tricks and variations for every recipe
* Most recipes have pictures
* Recipes actually made the amount of cookies listed due to proper description on how big each cookie should be before cooking
* Fabulous tasting results - I made the Chocolate Chip, Snickerdoodles and Thumbprint cookies and they all came out delicious
* Good brief nice introduction and acknowledgments were a nice touch
* The ABC's of Cookie Baking are perfect for the novice cookie maker (and I learned a few things too)
* This will be a very well used cookbook in this house - we are actually entering the Chocolate Chip Cookies in the Bolton Fall Fair next week
* We watch the movie Hoodwinked a lot and Snicker-doodles are mentioned, but we had no idea what they were. Now thanks to this fab recipe for them, I am hooked

The Not so Good Stuff

* Would have liked a picture on each of the recipes - although the simple group shots were a good idea too

Favorite Recipes

* Chocolate Chip Cookies with Bittersweet Chocolate Chips - Pg43
* Snickerdoodles - Pg 123
* Jam Thumbprints - Pg 101

Who should/shouldn't read

* Perfect for the beginner and advanced cook
* Will definitely be buying a copy for Tanya for Christmas
* For anyone who loves cookies & wants to make them
