Alice Medrich has done it again! The legions of fans of her previous two books, "Cocolat: Extraordinary Chocolate Desserts" and "Chocolate and the Art of Low-Fat Desserts," will thrill to this carefully tested selection of both down-home and elegant taste treats. Beginning and accomplished bakers alike will find recipes that make the most out of dessert fare sometimes thought too lowly to merit the attention of sophisticated diners. Alice brings to this new book her usual painstaking focus on the details of successful baking techniques, her always unerring palate for superb flavors and textures, and her artistic eye for pleasing presentation. And for those of us who can conceive of 'life beyond chocolate,' Alice shows off her notable expertise with a wide range of scrumptious, non-chocolate ingredients and combinations. If you thought there was nothing interesting left to be 'done' with these desserts, think again -- kids and adults will vie for who gets to the cookie jar or brownie plate first! This is a perfect Christmas or Hanukkah gift for every home cook, whether just starting out or an experienced hand.

I bought this book, and when I got it I have to admit that I was suprised at the small size and number of recipes(about 50). I was glad that I had bought the book at a discount because I do not think that I would have paid full price for the book. Then I went through the book and I was extremely pleased at the attention to detail and the ways she came up with to make traditional favorites even better. This is not a cookie encyclopedia with a million recipes for mediocre lumps of baked dough, but a selection of favorites that are absolutely delicious. I can imagine making EVERY recipe in this book, and that I cannot say about any cookbook I own but this one. The book itself has pictures of almost every cookie and it is printed on high quality paper, so this book will not fall apart in a few years.

If you love cookies and brownies, and who doesn't, then you'll love this book!
Even if you're not a cookie cooking professional, you'll be able to whip yp the best desserts on the block! (Be sure to share them with your neighbors, they'll be wondering what that wonderful smell is coming from your kitchen)!
You'll learn cookie details, cookie decorating, and how to eat the cookies you've made before anyone else in your house finds out -- only kidding!
Recipes include: shortbread, butter cookies, chocolate cookies, classic cookies, my favorite -- biscotti, along with cute sketches, great quotes, and a listing of ingredient and equipment how to's to keep you occupied while waiting for your treats to finish cooking!

The other book I have by Medrich, Chocolate and the Art of Low Fat Desserts, made me want to award her the Nobel Prize, so I had great expectations for this book. I was surprised at how small it was and wondered at the price. Then I made the Snickerdoodles. I have been in search of the perfect Snickerdoodle recipe, and my quest has come to an end. They were ethereal; melt in your-mouth, almost light texture, yet delectably buttery. I hate to confess that in one evening, I ate all of the ones from the first sheet out of the oven. I am almost afraid to try another recipe, but at the same time I can hardly wait!

The recipes are indeed gems and the author devotes an entire chapter to biscotti, but if you're looking for brownies other than chocolate - you'll need to look elsewhere. That said, the half-dozen brownie recipes and the technique she describes for producing the fudgiest fudgy brownies I've ever encountered (and I live for new brownie recipes) are fabulous.

I'm allergic to chocolate, mind you, but I just take a little Sinus medicine whenever I make something from this book.
Alice did a reading and brought some samples with her and OMIGOD! how could I not buy this book? Consistency, flavor, texture, if you follow her recipes you will have great results.
