An irresistable title - this books is the result of a competition for the perfect cookie recipe run by The Orchards Inn in Massachusetts in 1987. Of 2,600 entrants, the grand prize wiiner was a double chocolate chip cookie from a Junior League of Las Vegas cookbook. Great fun.

This cook book even has a recipe for mocha pinto bean chocolate chip cookies with oatmeal and dried apricots. Yummy!!! Think of an Ingredient for a cookie and you might find it in one of the recipes in this book. These recipes came from a contest in 1987 sponsored by the Orchards. ( )

Lots of different chocolate chip cookie recipes. Do you like them thick? Or crunchy? or made with butter? Nuts? Cakelike or chewy? Milk chocolate or dark? Whatever you're craving or whatever ingredients you have on hand, there's a recipe in here. The book also discusses how various ingredients and their quantities affect the final product. Yum. ( )

Haiku summary

Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0517101076, Hardcover)

It's out there somewhere--the ultimate chocolate chip cookie, perfectly baked, perfectly formed, heaped with divine chocolate pieces. In fact, the recipe for that dream cookie may well be found nestled in the pages of The Search for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie. The story behind this cookbook is intriguing. A small guest house in western Massachusetts (well known for its own home-cooked cookies) sponsored a competition to find the best cookie recipe in America. More than 2,600 recipes flooded in, and over 100 of the best grace the pages of this book. Every imaginable cookie variation is here--yogurt, ice cream, honey, pumpkin--even potato chips! Undoubtedly, many of these recipes are family secrets; others have been concocted through experimentation and chocolate chip innovation. Yet the beauty of all of these tasty treats is their simplicity. All that's required is basic cookie dough, mixed with that extra-special ingredient--be it shredded apple for Apple Orchard Chocolate Chippers, or a small cup of Kahlua for the tempting Kahlua Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. Some recipes are strange to say the least. How about Zesty Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies for a truly distinctive cookie? Aside from wonderful recipes, the book also provides handy hints for the storing, mixing, and baking of this favorite indulgence food. --Naomi Gesinger
