In celebration of my recent meeting of Martha Stewart, and as I now have a dear signed copy of her new Cookies cookbook, I took some time this week to peruse the wonderful pages of this heirloom-worthy book. While there are many cookbooks out there today, and many many cookie recipes, Martha has outdone herself yet again with a wonderfully unique look at cookies and how to present them in an education and compelling way.
I love the educational aspect, the cooking-from-scratch when others simply slice-and-cook, this book breaks down the cookies by texture - light & delicate or soft & chewy are just a few of the choices you can select. So all the while you're learning the nuances and tips of baking each cookie type. And, much like a cookbook of days-past, each section begins with a photo index (with lovely photograpy I might add) of each cookie type.
Simply a treat! I am sure my signed copy will make for a wonderful heirloom treasure for generations to come.
