This is me. I probably eat about 2 cookies worth of dough before it's all said and done. And then I don't want the cookies. lol So when Quirk sent me this cookbook, I was over the moon!

So you know I got busy...well once I remembered to pick up the stuff. I didn't want just chocolate chips, I wanted something that was just for me. I bought toffee bits and mini chocolate chips (these are what Lindsay recommends for the chocolate chip cookie dough). At the beginning of the book she has the recipe for the chocolate chip cookie dough and after that she has all the cool things you can do with it.

I thought it was going to be a huge batch, but really it probably would have made about a dozen of these little balls. I used my trusty ice cream scoop that I use when I bake cookies. The boys enjoyed it as much as I did, although we all thought it was too sweet. So next time I will use less sugar.

I also want to try the edible peanut butter cookie dough. And yes, with the peanut butter dough she has a recipe for Peanut Butter cups. YUM! Now the minute I find chocolate worth melting, I will be trying these! And there are candies that I would describe as a kind of truffle...just balling up the dough and pouring chocolate over it.

On the cover there are conversion charts. She offers suggestions on equipment and ingredients. Her introduction is well written, so you get to know the author before you jump into her recipes. And her recipes are pleasing to the eye and easy to follow. On the page with the chocolate chip cookie dough she has some variations including how to go vegan and gluten-free. Oh wow - Oatmeal Raisin...wonder if CW would eat it.

Do I recommend this cookbook? Yes, it's fun for grownups like me who enjoy cookie dough. It would also easily be something you can do with your kids, the recipes are simple and relatively little cooking is involved. ( )

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 cookie dough all over the book (Quirk has the most practical cookbooks)
•As usual the wife likes to comment on the index and this one she says is very well detailed and organized -- a virtual librarians dream (chocolate & organized stuff)
•Recipes are easy to follow and use ingredients that are readily available
•The sheer amount of recipes that you can use cookie dough for really is amazing
•We shared all the items we made with mine and Jen's work as well as some of her nerdy book friends/publishers (says she even gave some to the guy that wrote that book Shit my Dad Says)
•Creative use of cookie dough for all sorts of occasions - even breakfast
•Plenty of quick tips and suggestions
•Has a nice cute introduction
•Practical in terms that it explains the ingredients, the equipment, etc before you even get to the recipes
•Every recipe has at least one picture - which makes it more appetizing
•Even some unique wrapping ideas for the treats if you want to pass them along (which unfortunately the wife is ALWAYS doing -- she never leaves any of them home for us boys)
•Even has some vegan recipes

The Not So Good Stuff
•Nothing in here for diabetics (as wife likes to say had to find something to put in this section)
