5.0 out of 5 stars First?, 25 Jan. 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Chewy Gooey Crispy Crunchy Melt-In-Your-Mouth Cookies by Alice Medrich (Paperback)
I can hardly believe this book has not yet been reviewed... I suspect it will turn into a modern classic.

I am quite happy to give it the full 5 stars even though there are some flaws. Firstly there are not enough photos to show you the end results you can achieve - but I can forgive it for that. The ingredients are given in cups and imperial measures - but who can measure 2.625oz of anything? I shall stick to my cups for this one! I know some UK cooks are resistant to cups - so perhaps this is one you should avoid.

But if you did you would be missing a treat.

The recipes are broken down in sections - Chewy, Gooey, Crispy, Crunchy and basics. And there is plenty of ideas to tempt even the most jaded palette. I am particularly impressed with the additional tips that many of recipes contain - which can be technical, suggested alternative versions or just serving suggestions. This is great added value. There are also a number of lower fat and wheat-free options - so that should broaden the appeal.

Yes, it is an American book - but the ingredients look fairly standard so I would urge people to 'look inside' and be tempted. As I was!

This baking book addiction is getting serious!
