'Think what a better place the world would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap'. - Robert Fulghum. "The Cookiepedia" is a trusty, durable, and cozy-cute cookie book reminiscent of the old Betty Crocker volumes and hand-bound church-group cookbooks made by our mothers and grandmothers.
Inside, you'll find easy illustrated instructions for all the classic homemade cookie recipes: chocolaty cookie classics like whoopie pies, chocolate crinkles, triple chocolate cookies, and chocolate mint; things that will put the Girl Scouts to shame; pretty patterned cookies like pinwheels, checkerboard cookies, black-and-white cookies, and Rainbow cookies; boozy cookies like bourbon balls and eggnog cookies, perfect for holiday cheer; fancy treats from gooey alfajores to delicate madeleines make any tea party special; and, more!
A lovely lie-flat wire binding invites bakers to roll up their sleeves, make a mess, and have fun!
This is no glossy celebrity product - it's a trusty, durable, back-to-basics cookie cookbook that invites you to write notes on your recipes. With playful ideas like slipping secret messages into handmade fortune cookies, templates for cookie-swap gift cards, and creative storing and packaging tricks like freezing cookie dough balls in Ball jars so they're ready to bake off on a rainy day, "The Cookiepedia" contains everything you need to take over the world, one batch of cookies at a time!
