Which I promptly did on the first batch, alas.

I was hesitant to check it out because it was Martha. I have no problem with her personally, per se--I mean, it isn't like she ever came over and kicked my dog or anything--but I feel like a lot of times I'm expected to pay out the nose for something just because she slapped her name on it.

Like the dog beds. What makes her dog bed worth $50 and this other dog bed worth $20? Is her dog bed made of clouds and gilded with solid gold? I doubt it. I digress (and what's with all my mention of dogs?). My point is that I didn't want to support the Martha Machine, but I did want to make new and exciting cookies, so I borrowed the book from work and got cracking. Within a week, I owned a copy and it was covered in chocolate fingerprints and smeared with sugar and flour. Have you ever had the chocolate crackles from this book? Eating them borders on a religious experience. Everyone I make them for calls them crack cookies and I don't even care that it's not some brilliant recipe I invented because I'll accept food-based adoration no matter what, and damn they are good cookies. There are macaroons of various flavors, chocolate gingerbread cookies, pfeffernusse, windowpane cookies, cigarettes, etc. It is the best kind of food porn. And it's all organized by texture, which is just... WOW. I seriously can't think of anything better than organizing a cookie book by texture. I am dead serious here, folks. This is how you organize a cookie book. Thanks to this book, I now have Silpat sheets, a really good rolling pin, lots of really nice measuring materials, a cookie press, and an addiction to melting chocolate. Thanks to this book, I like Martha. (I still won't use her cookie packaging ideas, though. Why wrap them up all pretty when you can just eat them?)

    Made a batch of snickerdoodles from the recipe in this book, and they owned! Many of the recipes featured are rather simple, which is great for those of us who don't want to hunt out some obscure ingredient or shell out oodles for a particular thing you'll only wind up using once. The photos in the book are pure cookie porn, and although I currently have this book checked out from the library, I think I need to get my own copy.

    The quick and dirty reciew for those that don't want the long version: This book is an essential for any cookie monster. The contents isuniquely laid out and ultra functional as are the sections of the book. There are pictures for every recipe. The recipes are varied in flavour, texture, difficulty, and cost. This book is almost flawless. Recipes to try (They're all chocolate. Wonder what I like in my cookies? :D): chocolate crackles, chocolate chip maracroons, chewy chocolate gingerbread cookie The quick and dirty reciew for those that don't want the long version: This book is an essential for any cookie monster. The contents isuniquely laid out and ultra functional as are the sections of the book. There are pictures for every recipe. The recipes are varied in flavour, texture, difficulty, and cost. This book is almost flawless. Recipes to try (They're all chocolate. Wonder what I like in my cookies? :D): chocolate crackles, chocolate chip maracroons, chewy chocolate gingerbread cookies, chocolate thumbprints, chocolate cookie cutouts. I have tried 23 recipes of the almost 175 that the book contains. There were pnly a few recipes that did not turn out or were unappetizing. Most of the rest that I would not make again were fine cookies, they just didn't interest my palette. But over half the cookies I made I would definitely make again, many were really phenominal. For a cookbook, where some hit-and-miss is to be expected, I am not surprised that Marth Stewart's Cookies manages to have so many great recipes. The book is divided into seven sections by cookie texture: light and delicate, soft and chewy, crumbly and sandy, chunky and nutty, cakey and tender, crisp and crunchy, rich and dense. Soft and chewy, crumbly and sany, crisp and crunchy, and rich an dense are all larger chapters, and the other chapters are about half the size. I absolutely love that the book is divided this way because I generally like cookies with certain tentures, while I don't like other cookie textures. Also, having the cookies laid out by texure makes it easy to find the right kind of cookie for, say, tea time or dessert or snack. There is also a picture for each cookie in the book. I love it when there is a picture for each dish in a book. It elevates the cookbook into a real treasure, plus it's nice to see the cookies to help decide whether you think you'd make them. There is no mini-contents within each chapter, instead just one at the beginning of the book, but it works because the contents is laid out so uniquely. Instead of a boring list of the types of cookies in the book, each section has a page or two and every cookie is photographed from the top and underneath is the name and page the recipe is found on. I love this! It is the most unique contents I have ever seen, it's beautiful, and so unique. Plus it's really handly to be able to picture-peruse a bunch of cookies at once when deciding what you want to make. Although Martha always demands the best of the best ingredients for her recipes, which can make things a bit pricey, there were many cookies where grocery store brand ingredients could be substituted with little or no compromise on cookie quality. So many of the cookies are quite affordable to make. There are of course the medium and more pricey cookies as well, but sometimes it;s nice to treat yourself to a decadent experience, which you'll definitely get with may of the cookies in this book. There is also a range in equipment and difficulty level needed for cookies. Ther are your oh-so-basic drop and bar cookies and then there are others which need special presses or moulds (one even needs a waffle maker). There are cookies that require precision fingers and techniques to finish them off, but then there are some less difficult cookies that require only some knowledge beyond basic, so these would be good stepping-stone recipes before foraying into the uber-expert recipes. There are also cookies that can be made in under an hour and with one or two bowls and then others that involve many steps or layers and can be a bit time consuming to make (and then you have to do the dishes after). As for cookies featured in the book, there is also quite the variety as well. You're going to get your tranditionals like chocolate chip, shortbread, rum balls, brownies. There's also a lot of traditional "foriegn-style" cookies like bratseli, fortune cookies, mexican wedding cookies, and alfajores de dulce de leche. Besides textures, there's also a variety of styles like drop, bar, meringues, cut-out, liquor-based, icebox, and sandwich. There's lots of simple flavours like chocolate, sugar, and nut-based and then cookies with interesting flavours like Earl grey, sesame, pistachio, and lime. There are also many cookie styles that are reapeated. There are several textures of chocolate chip, depending on what you like. There are also several flavours of merengue, shortbread, macaroon-style, and meltaways. I like that Martha doesn't just pick one style of certain cookies. By adding ingredients or changing the style of how the cookie is made, some basic cookies are really showcased for all the variety that they can bring to the table. I've tried a few of the shortbreads and they don't even taste like the same cookie. There is also, of course, a variety of cookies of all palettes. This is a book that parents can use to bake for their kids, that makes adult tea-time cookies, that has savoury and sweet combinations. It's clear that a lot of planning and thought went into covering all the possible variety bases they could when making this book. I'm sure that there were many great cookies that did not make the cut, and not one recipe seems redundant or just to add filler. This is a classic cookbook for any cookie lover. I turn to it again and again. It is the only cookie book I will bake from. There were barely any flaws in this cookbook, which is a tour-de-force, easy to use, functionally laid out, and pictures with every recipe. Recipes I have tried (starred for favourites): *soft and chewy chocolate chip cookies *chocolate crackles *marcaroons (regular, chocolcate, and chocolate chip) cream-filled chocolate sandwiches *chewy chocolate gingerbread cookies cashew caramel cookies dark chocolate cookies with sour cherries *classic shortbread mocha shortbread wedges *rum raisin shortbread lime meltaways chunky peanut, chocolate, and cinnamon cookies rocky ledge bars peanut butter whoopie pies raspberry almond blondies *cakey chocolate chip cookies *chocolate cookie cutouts Earl grey tea cookies *chocolate thumbprints *rum balls lemon squares

    As with any truly great cookbook, there is a picture of every recipe. I especially like the feature in the front where you can see a small picture of every cookie in the chapter. Then there are pictures within the chapter of the cookies on display or cleverly packaged for gift-giving. I haven't made any of the cookies yet (that's this weekend's project), but I plan on copying out all the ones that look good before taking it back to the library.

I haven't made any of the cookies yet (that's this weekend's project), but I plan on copying out all the ones that look good before taking it back to the library. Most of the recipes don't interest me, which is why I knew I didn't want to buy the book. A whole chapter on shortbread? Ick. I don't love cookies with tons of nuts, and I also don't want to go to ridiculous lengths to find ingredients, so there's half the cookies gone. However, there are plenty that look absolutely amazing. I'm excited to try the Lime Meltaways and some of the chocolate cookies. I discovered I like my cookies simple, without too many components. There's something in here for everyone, and I'm ready to get baking. Update: I've now copied about 15 recipes down, and that's about all I want to actually make. I looked at the directions for several more that looked tasty but decided they weren't worth the effort. In general, the directions are thorough, almost to the point of tedious. But then again, I suppose recipes aren't really riveting reading anyway. Martha Stewart is, as ever, detailed and meticulous. Some of the directions involve things like refrigerating the dough for an hour and then letting sit at room temperature for 15 minutes. Why not just put it in the fridge for less time? Other tricks are very helpful and add that extra oomph to really make your cookies special.

    This cookbook is beautiful. There are pictures of every single recipe: YES every single one. Thank goodness. It also describes specific procedures in detail with additional photos where needed, which is much more detailed than Martha's website (yes, we're on a first name basis.) Speaking of her website, this is the reason it didn't get 5 stars from me. These recipes are on her website and in her magazines...I recognized quite a few. So it really isn't new, original information, just grouped into This cookbook is beautiful. There are pictures of every single recipe: YES every single one. Thank goodness.

There are a lot of fancy looking cookies, so it is great for holidays, entertaining, etc. Prepare yourself for the work for some of these. They all look delicious! So my recommendation is to get this at the library like I did. Find any that you love and bookmark them on her website. Therefore it's all free, and you can make them when you want (not having to rush before the library book is due). If you know someone who loves to bake cookies, and isn't a regular user of Martha's website, this is a GREAT gift!

    Ok, I'm a little put out by this book to begin with. I used to have most of these recipes in an app that Martha Stewart released some years ago. It was a damn good app, too. Nice navigation, loaded fast, same photos as in the book. And then they stopped updating it. Not as in "they stopped adding recipes," but as in "it no longer worked with more recent iOS and MSO pulled the app rather than update it." Grrr. That aside, it's a pretty good cookie cookbook.

    To Read: Sure. There’s not a lot to read, just short descriptions of each cookie. After the recipes, there is a tips section that has pretty helpful information. And since this is Martha Stewart, there are even some craft projects that will help you with packaging and sharing your cookies. To Look At: Yes. Each recipe is accompanied by a photo. The tips section also has great photos to clearly demonstrate the steps for making each type of a cookie. Even if you aren’t crafty, the packaging section To Read: Sure.

The tips section also has great photos to clearly demonstrate the steps for making each type of a cookie. Even if you aren’t crafty, the packaging section has some nice photos that can give you ideas of how to present your cookies. To Cook From: I think so. The Mini Black-and-White Cookies were not a success, but the Soft and Chewy Chocolate Chip Cookies were. Also, I have made the Gingerbread-White Chocolate Blondies at Christmas for years, and they are a family favorite. With 175 recipes in this book, I doubt everyone is going to be a winner, but there were many more recipes that looked worth trying. Martha Stewart’s Cookies has the recipes divided by “light and delicate,” “soft and chewy,” “crumbly and sandy,” “chunky and nutty,” “cakey and tender,” “crisp and crunchy,” and “rich and dense.” In addition, all of the categories with photos of each cookie and the page numbers are listed in the beginning of the book. This allows you to browse by picture, not just name, which I think is a nice feature. Overall, I think this is a good comprehensive cookie cookbook, and I can’t wait to try out some more recipes. I already have friends offering to be my taste-testers. LOL

    This cookie treasury is wonderful to have on hand, whether to bake from or even just to peruse. The treats are categorized by texture, which I think is brilliant, and each one has simple, clear directions accompanied by a tempting photograph. Every recipe I’ve made from this book has turned out scrumptious; two that stick out in my mind are the “Ginger Cheesecake Bars” and the “Fruit and Nut Cookies.” The variety is just wonderful, as there is a cookie here for every occasion and every taste!

    Just to see Martha Stewart's name on the front of the book and I am sold to it! I only made two recipes so far and been very pleased with the results. I first bought Martha Stewart Pies and Tarts cookbook recommended by a solid reference here in Québec, Ricardo Larrivée. He considers Martha as a prime reference to his liking cooking!! Do not hesitate and buy this book that you will probably use many times during the year. Just to see Martha Stewart's name on the front of the book and I am sold to it!

It is my go-to baking guide! Surprisingly, since it is a cookie book, I find myself most using Stewart's brownie recipes.
