Dorie's Cookies by Dorie Greenspan

Dorie's Cookies is the mother lode of cookie recipes that you could ever want to bake! 

Dorie's Cookies will be the standard by which all other cookie cookbooks will be judged!
just doesn't get any better than this! Dorie worked on this cookie cookbook for three years and set a very high bar for the cookie recipes that would make it into the book.
Dorie definitely has, as they say in the trade, "chops!" Dorie writes a blog called "Everyday Dorie" which has a large following. She has written 12 cookbooks and has been writing them for twenty-five years, has received four James Beard awards, worked with Julia Child on a cookbook, and is in the Who's Who of Food and Beverage in America. At one time, Dorie even had a pop-up bakery/boutique with her son, called Beurre & Sel.

The wonderful photography is by Davide Luciano. There are full-page photographs of every cookie recipe in the book with colorful backgrounds that pop. *See below 

The recipe for "World Peace Cookies," which is a signature cookie for Dorie is in the cookbook. To attest to how popular the WPC cookies are, they have been in two other cookbooks by Dorie Greenspan. Dorie explains why she named a cookie "Good, Better, Best Cookies" because it "is proof that sometimes as good as good can be, more can be better and even more can be best."  Dorie's Cookies proves that even more can be best!

Almond Crackle Cookies
Simply Sensational Cookies by Nancy Baggett is another excellent cookie cookbook that you can find at the Virginia Beach Public Library. The VBPL also has Dorie Greenspan's excellent cookbook, Baking: From My Home To Yours. Bon Appetit!

I have this book at home and made the Lemon Sugar Cookies recently. I highly recommend them!
