Book Review: The Cookie Bible

The Cookie BibleThe Cookie Bible by Rose Levy Beranbaum
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Every cook’s bookshelf should have at least one volume dedicated to cookies. The author of The Cookie Bible is a veteran cookbook writer, having produced The Cake Bible (which I have pawed through at a friends house and thought it was excellent) and many more cookbooks.

I love molasses cookies and am always willing to try a new variation, so I gave this book’s version a go. Now I know that ginger and molasses pair well together, and that’s a happy new discovery.

I’ll admit I’m hesitant to try a recipe that puts a new spin on my all-time favorite cookie—snickerdoodles—but I’m going to be brave and see what happens when caramel is included. I trust this author to not lead me astray, and look forward to many new cookie adventures to come.

This isn’t a ‘casual’ cookie book. It strives for technically perfect cookies. If you aspire to become a master cookie baker, you’ll want this resource on your cookbook shelf.

My thanks to author Rose Levy Beranbaum, NetGalley, and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for allowing me to read a digital advance review copy of this book. This review is my honest and unbiased opinion.
