Let’s come clean! Let’s own our clandestine love affair with cookies. At times we secretly meet up, other times we openly share and expose our deep love and a guilty pleasure for luscious and sinfully rich cookies. I know this is resonating with many of you. Cookies are one of those foods that will raise our spirits and put a smile on our faces. They’re also a pure joy to bake. There isn’t one person in my family who doesn’t love cookies, so I enjoy creating a variety of recipes, but you can never have enough cookie recipes. To expand my recipe repertoire, I’ve added the 100 Cookies, The Baking Book For Every Kitchen to my collection.

The ingredients to make the majority of cookies can be found at your local grocers. You might have to search for other ingredients at a health food store, like Hazelnut flour. I couldn’t find it anywhere in the city I live in, so in this case, I’ll just substitute it a flour I have in my pantry. So, it’s a good idea to find and stock up on your ingredients before diving into any recipes.
Some of the included recipes are Snickerdoodles, Peanut Butter Crunch Brownies, Cream Cheese Pumpkin Pie Bars, Caramelized White Chocolate Pistachio Bark, Ginger Molasses Cookies, and Thumbprints. Some recipes have more than one version, so they offer a wide range of flavors.
You’ll also find recipes for Pie Dough Base, Rough Puff Pastry, Brown Butter, Pastry Cream and more at the back of the book. Cookies are comfort foods that the whole family loves. They’re also great to take to parties or give as gifts. Now, you have 100 recipes to choose from.
