There are no recipes in this book that I wouldn't love to settle down with a nice big plate of alongside a big ole glass of milk. I recommend this book to both beginners and masters, as there's recipes in here for everyone. The directions are clear and concise, the recipes are awesome, and the photography is mouthwatering. I was provided a copy of this cookbook in exchange for my honest review. This review can also be found on my blog, Bitches n Prose.

I think that this cookbook should be in everyones collection. Gorgeous pictures, concise and easy recipes that will be family favorites. I just love this book and intend to make more recipes from it in the future, such as the sample recipe listed below.
I have found my cookie Mecca in this book. There are the classics - chocolate chip -, savoury twists - bacon in a cookie, anyone? Cookie bible for all you baking fiends out there. Feb 01, Yaaresse marked it as sampled-not-interested Shelves: first-read Source: Library Not for me. It's got that "let me blather on and on about myself" thing going on.
Even after getting past pages of "I'm all that and more" in the intro, the self-praise of everything being "sublime" and "phenomenal" goes on in the lead for each recipe. Nothing to distinguish it from half a dozen other similar books. Same "artsy" photos of scoops and flour-laden cutters. Same overly-chatty tone. Nothing looked like anything I wanted to make, but a quick scan and some top-of-head ma Source: Library Not for me. Nothing looked like anything I wanted to make, but a quick scan and some top-of-head math suggests most of the recipes would be tooth-achingly sweet or overly salty.

This putting bacon in everything really needs to stop. Just eat the damn bacon already. And I won't even drink Folgers, which only barely qualifies as coffee, so I'm sure not putting it into cookies. As others have said, a lot of the recipes are overly complicated and the instructions so looooong.
While the title and picture may make my mouth water, I am not going to spend as much time as some of these recipes require. Mar 09, La La rated it it was amazing Shelves: review-arcs-netgalley , on-my-kindle , read-foodie-drinkie. This is a well put together and informative book. The illustration photographs are wonderful. I will return with a full review. Apr 28, Aniesa rated it really liked it.
Most of these cookies are more involved than I will actually be able to make with my three year old. Nonetheless, the book is gorgeous and I totally cookie love it. Mar 12, Megan rated it it was ok. I was so ready to like this book. I planned on liking this book. I like Segal. I like what she has to say about pastry, and about cookies in particular. I was at HotChocolate when I was in Chicago last year - though I didn't realize that was her place until I read the introduction.
And the namesake there? The hot chocolate? That first sip is amazing - impossibly rich, tooth-achingly sweet, the perfect thing to warm you up when winter is taking too long to turn into spring as was the case when I I was so ready to like this book. That first sip is amazing - impossibly rich, tooth-achingly sweet, the perfect thing to warm you up when winter is taking too long to turn into spring as was the case when I was there.
And then, by the third sip, you don't want any more. It's too rich, too sweet. It is literally tooth-aching. It only comes in one size, which seems like a great size for hot chocolate, a little bigger than you'd normally get but this is an indulgence!
And hooooooeeeey is it ever. So if I had realized the author of this book was the proprietor there, I probably would have left it on the shelf at the library, but alas, I did not know until I got the book home. And by then it was too late. Espresso-malt cookies? Those addictive little S-cookies from the Christmas tin? TWO tactics for shortbread? This girl gets me!
The espresso-malt meringue cookies required making a malted hot fudge first. No big deal. I have the ingredients, I like making interesting condiments, I can handle multi-step recipes.
I got this. Reader, that malted hot fudge was so fucking disgusting. The recipe, as written, was revoltingly salty. And I have previously in my life threatened to have a salt lick for dinner.
The cookies, from there, were unbelievably meh. They were crisp, that was their only texture - meeting none of the lovely crunch and air and melt-on-your-tongue expectation of a meringue. Oh, and I pulled them out of the oven an HOUR early because they had spread so thin I had little hope they were even going to be edible, because "do not overmix, it should retain a swirl" doesn't really tell you how the batter should look, exactly. Maybe meringue cookies just aren't my thing.yoku-nemureru.com/wp-content/mobile-spyware/1808-app-spy-on.php
Cookbook Giveaway: Cookie Love by Mindy Segal
Onto the S cookies! A simple butter dough, no eggs, piped out on a cookie tray. I followed the instructions more closely this time, since the meringues were such a disaster. Despite that, the milk specified in the recipe would. I finally gave up and added a couple tablespoons of the flour from the next step, at which point it mixed together immediately, and beautifully. I added the rest of the flour, the salt, and dumped it into a pastry bag to pipe out.
