Kurzbeschreibung

Tucked away on a quiet, tree-lined street in Brooklyn, New York, is One Girl Cookies: a charming bakery and café whose owners have created what they call an Urban Mayberry. Little do most people know that this dessert destination—famous for its gorgeous bite-sized cookies, amazingly moist cakes, seasonal pies and tarts, and dangerously addictive whoopie pies—started simply, with one girl baking cookies out of a tiny apartment. One Girl Cookies shares the recipes for the shop’s sought-after treats, as well as the sweet story behind its beginnings.

To open One Girl Cookies, Dawn Casale looked to her family for inspiration, digging into a treasure trove of heirloom recipes and photos that she uses in her unique packaging designs. She often names her cookies for people special to her: Lucia (Espresso Caramel Squares with White and Dark Chocolate Swirl) is in honor of Dawn’s beloved grandmother, and Lana (Bittersweet Chocolate Sandwiches Filled with Raspberry Preserves) was created for her favorite teacher, who was a little bit bitter but mostly sweet. Dawn’s family life and the shop are so inseparable that it is only fitting that when she hired David Crofton, a professional baker, to expand the business, it turned out that she had found the love of her life.

From simple old-fashioned confections such as Lemon Bars and Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with Spiced Oat Crumble to modern treats like Orange Butter Drops with Shredded Coconut and Pumpkin Whoopie Pies with Maple Spiced Filling, the recipes featured here will impress and delight anyone lucky enough to get a taste. With beautiful color photos and tips for wrapping and gift-giving, One Girl Cookies will become a cherished addition to every passionate baker’s kitchen.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Tasty results from a lovely book. Easy to read. Easy to use. 19. März 2012
Von Ginkgo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Expect good results from this pretty book with many charming and quaint photographs. The recipes are straightforward with simple instructions and readily available ingredients.

The book contains intriguing and special recipes, i.e. Buttermilk Tea Cookies, Sicilian Frozen Trifle, etc., as well as American recipes both "common" (apple pie) and "uncommon" (whoopie pies), and also Italian desserts like a delightful Lemon Olive Oil cake (quick and easy to make). The book does not contain some of the more complex and laborious French recipes such as brioche and croissants, but there are other good bakery cookbooks (Flour and Tartine) for those recipes. I was skeptical about the claim of "the best" chocolate cupcake but it really is the best. The crumb is moist and delicate. The taste is divine. (Used Valhrona Dutch cocoa powder with Trader Joes's chocolate chips and Fage Greek yogurt.) Both the chocolate lover and non-chocolate lover thought the cupcakes were superb. And, the cupcakes were all eaten before any got frosted.

My one complaint concerns ingredient measurements. No weights are given for ingredients, and the method for flour measurement (lightly spooned or dip and sweep) is not specified, so one cannot convert cups to weight. At first, I used the dip and sweep method but my biscuits came out extremely dry. (1 cup bleached all-purpose flour equals 145 grams for dip and sweep vs 121 grams for lightly spooned. This 20% extra flour makes quite a difference in the final product.) Later, I converted my weight to the spoon and sweep method and had consistently good results for the Vanilla Cupcakes, Chocolate Cupcakes, Lemon Oil Cake, Chocolate Chip Pistachio Cake, Pineapple Upside-Down Cake and Apple Pie. The author, David Crofton, confirmed via telephone message that the spoon and sweep method should be used.

I did modify one recipe. Pre-baked the bottom crust for the apple pie, and added some flour to the apple filling to avoid soggy bottom for the second day. And although side by side, the apple pie made from the recipe in Flour won, it was a very close call. Still, the One Girl apple pie recipe was top-notch.

This is a lovely book with good tasting (along with the fantastic Chocolate Cupcakes) home baked recipes accompanied with many photographs. The book even shows and encourages you to prettily package and present the final product.

You will be happy with this book.

Recommendation: For everyone, but especially for non-bakers, hesitant bakers, and occasional bakers. A good no-fuss, go-to book.

PS. Have made the crust for the pumpkin pie and will write up the results.

Update: 6 June 2012

The Pumpkin Pie was a good variation, where the pepitas added a nice crunch, but the pie was just as tasty without them.

Have also made the Buttermilk Tea Cookies, Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Peppermint Filling, and the Rich Chocolate Cake. Again, everything was delicious and easy to make. Instead of making the Chocolate Cake in a 10 inch cake pan, divided it into two 7 inch cake pans. Cut both cakes in half horizontally and filled them with apricot jam and coffee buttercream (Chang's Flour cookbook) on the first and third layer and espresso ganache (Desaulniers's Death by Chocolate cookbook) on the second layer. Then, coated the top and sides with the espresso ganache, refrigerated for  hour and then covered the sides with buttercream and piped stars along the top and bottom edges. The cake, as with most layered and filled cakes, tasted the best the day after assembly. A big hit. (See picture above.) Would absolutely use this chocolate cake with other fillings and frostings.

Without hesitation, would still recommend this book.

Update: 10 June 2012

Tried the Strawberry Rhubarb Pie with Spice Oat Crumble. Although, my household really likes ginger in both sweet and savory dishes, the ginger in the Spice Oat Crumble met with strong disapproval. In fact, ended up taking the crumble off the pie. Would make the pie again but without the ground ginger and crystallized ginger.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Feast for the eyes, but not sure recipes are accurate 21. Juni 2012
Von Sherri - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
I bought this cookbook after checking it out from the library, so I knew what I was getting. However, I hadn't actually baked any of the recipes. After now making two, I am rather disappointed. First, I made the Lemon Olive Oil cake, which sounded lovely. She has you sprinkle turbinado sugar on top, but this burnt, so it ended up looking like there were black specs on it. The second recipe I tried was the graham crackers. The recipe was a bit confusing, but even so, mine ended up looking nothing like the picture. She shows a picture of a very dark cracker that looks like it has molasses in it. I even used dark brown sugar, instead of the light it called for, and mine still came out very pale. The dough was impossible to roll out (between parchment paper) and stuck to the paper. It ended up being a messy, frustrating experience. And then, they tasted very boring -- worse than store bought! So I won't give up, but so far, the recipes do not live up to the pictures.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Good results, but with a few caveats 14. Juli 2013
Von S. Nardi - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
We've had this book for about nine months and have made about fifteen of the recipes. In general, the results have been tasty. If you're thinking about buying this, however, you should know a few things. We bought the book rather casually because we like the restaurant so much, and so we assumed that we could use it to fill in a few cookie recipes here and there. That's not really what we got. So, caveats:

1.) from the reviews, this is clearly an easy book for experienced bakers to follow. But it is most certainly not an introduction to baking, or a book with a lot of recipes that you can crank out in a few minutes. The blueberry muffins, for example, require several bowls and some fairly careful mixing and prep work. Again, if you're experienced I'm sure this is no problem, but customers looking for quick and easy recipes should look elsewhere.

2.) This is no-compromise-on-the sugar-and-butter cookbook. Very very few recipes here are health or weight conscious. Even the multi-grain muffins (which are mentioned as healthy) have a stick of butter and three-quarters cup of sour cream. Nearly everything comes with a scoop of extra sugar on top, or a thick layer of butter and cream cheese icing. Not a problem for occasional treats perhaps, but know what you're getting into. If you don't like very sweet things, or you're cooking with a kid in the house, you're going to have to make some serious adjustments. We've had good results using half the sugar suggested, and leaving off the sugar toppings and heavy icings. If you know the restaurant, and have the tiny carefully balanced portions served there in mind, you will be surprised by this book.

3.) The book makes few compromises to help you along if you're having trouble. Most recipes, for example, assume you have a standing mixer and there is no suggestions for how to cope if you don't. Also, there are some instances where recipes that are just plain hard could use some photos of the cooking process--I'm thinking especially of the butter milk biscuits which have never risen properly for me. The photos are beautiful and mouthwatering, but mainly serve to advertise the wonderful store since they are so professionally produced that I wouldn't ever expect to be able to recreate such a thing. Again, this is a book pitched towards more experienced folk, so this might not bother you.

As I said above, we've had some great recipes out of this book, and tried some things that were tasty and interesting. The olive oil cake stands out--although I can't get the lumps out. I've made some of the cake layers and left off the icing, and the fig tart was wonderful once we cut the amount of honey and halved the volume of filling.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Absolutely The Best Pecan Pie Ever 5. Juli 2012
Von Antigone Walsh - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a charming book written by the owners of a Brooklyn New York bakery. Featuring lovely photgraphs, the book contains a collection of recipes including cookies, cakes, pies and breakfast items. There is a short section on creative packaging. The authors name their creations after members of their families. Their backstory is cute, how they became sweeties amid the sweets. But the litmus test for any cookbook is how the recipes turn out.

I first tried the Best Ever Chocolate Cupcakes. It is always dangerous to dub something "best ever" and sadly this recipe did not even make my top ten. Although there was good chocolate flavor, the texture was coarse and bready. All was forgiven with my sophmore outing. I love pecan pie but it is so difficult to find one that is more than an overly sweet gelatinous mess. The recipe here, is hands, down, the best ever. The marriage between the pecans and the maple syrup is sublime and the pecans are truly the star of the show. It looked exactly like the photograph in the book and has earned a permanent place in my holiday repetoire. Were I to change anything, it wold be to toast the oats that go in the crust for a bit more depth.

My next experiment were the expresso caramel squares with white and dark chocolate swirl. A bar cookies, it is described as a gourmet twix. The final result again looked idenetical to the photograph but the result was disapointing. While the shortbread base stood up to both the filling and the summer humidity, the caramel layer was bland and surprisingly tasteless despite the addition of coffee. The dark chocolate layer, while delicious, was too thick. Were I to make it again, I would use a different caramel recipe, reduce the amount of dark chocolate and add coffee to it also.

Finally, I tried the nana cookies. Subtlely spiced with clove, these piped cookies are a delight with coffee. Not too sweet, they look plain. Some of my taste testers thought they were flavorless so next time I will add more cloves.

This book has a wide variety of recipes. Most are homey not frou-frou. Although some have many steps, the recipes are not difficult to make and even novices should be able to enjoy success. Inexplicably this book contains no explanatory text about ingredients or measuring.

This book is worth the price for the pecan pie recipe alone. Recommended.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Fun Cookbook 23. Januar 2012
Von Holly B. Toomians - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe|Verifizierter Kauf
This is a really fun cookbook. I've enjoy baking several of the recipes and all have been wonderful. I especially love the raspberry oatmeal bars. The recipes are super easy to follow and remind me of the old fashioned cooking my mother used to do when I was a kid.
