Library Journal Review

Fans of baking expert Greenspan (Baking Chez Moi; Baking from My Home to Yours) have been awaiting this cookbook since 2010, when the author announced the opening of a pop-up cookie store in New York with her son Joshua. The recipes they developed for that venture are all here, along with hundreds of others (e.g., salted chocolate caramel bars, two-bite, one-chip cookies, honey-blue cheese madeleines, pistachio-berry slims). The sheer variety of cookie flavors, shapes, sizes, and types in this collection (copyedited by LJ's former cooking columnist Judith Sutton) is staggering, enough to last even the most motivated home cooks many happy years of baking. The book concludes with refreshingly uncommon chapters for "cocktail cookies" and "cookie go-alongs and basics" such as ice creams, sauces, toppings, and other accompaniments. VERDICT Essential for all baking collections. © Copyright 2016. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
