Better Homes & Gardens Ultimate Cookie Book
Monday, Fun-Day, Cookbook Giveaway!
Yay, it’s Monday! The first day of the week may not be something to get excited about in the work world, but here at Cooks&Books&Recipes it is. Because I’m giving away one cookbook every Monday. Awesome, right?
This Monday’s cookbook is The Ultimate Cookie Book. It’s the second edition, and it’s from Better Homes & Gardens, so you KNOW it’s pretty much all you need when you’re looking for cookie recipes.
Here’s why you want the The Ultimate Cookie Book cookbook:
This one-stop source, packed with more than 250 inspiring photos, gives home bakers a huge collection of 500 irresistible cookie recipes for every occasion. There are tried-and-true classics to pair with a glass of milk (such as Chocolate Chunk Cookies), treats perfect for holiday celebrations (such as Big Soft Ginger Cookies), and on-trend sweet-and-savory delights (such as Berry-Sage Thumbprints). A welcome variety of options includes Express cookies (quick recipes that start with a mix) and Double Takes (homemade versions of iconic store-bought favorites). An informative ‘Cookie Basics’ section covers topics such as proper measuring, equipment, decorating, and packaging. With this book, bakers at all levels will find endless inspiration for everyday goodies and year-round entertaining.
My favorite thing about The Ultimate Cookie Book? This cookbook gets right to it: not a lot of surrounding text or talk; just 500+ (!) recipes for any type of cookie you can think of. If you want to bake cookies, this cookbook is all you need. Chapters include “No Fuss, No Bake”; “Cocktail Cookies”; “Stuffed & Filled”; and “Irresistible Brownies.”
