For all the years my kids were growing up, I rarely made cookies. They are a lot of work, and don't last long with 6 (or even 4) sons clamoring for cookies. I did teach the girls to bake, however, and to read a recipe, and they took up making cookies on Sunday mornings before I got up, starting when they were in middle school. Their go-to repertoire was chocolate chip and peanut butter cookies: admirable choices.
So, recently I got the opportunity to review this cookbook, which seems very appropriate for Cookbook Wednesday:
by Mindy Segal
This is a beautiful hardcovered book. The author explains that she is dyslexic, and has trouble reading recipes correctly, and so developed a love of baking cookies, often creating her own recipes. She explains the basics - various ingredients, their use, and even where to get hard to find items.
Note: I received this book from Blogging for Books. All opinions are my own.
This is my entry for Cookbook Wednesday, usually hosted by the lovely Louise, who is on hiatus. Leave me a note to be linked up!
