Dorie's Cookies

Dorie’s Cookies, by Dorie Greenspan, was the 2017 James Beard Foundation Award-winner for Baking and Dessert, and for good reason. The book is full of Greenspan’s delicious, well-tested recipes, with loads of pictures, detailed instructions, and preparation tips, to turnout the best cookies, even if you’re a novice baker. The book contains both standard classics and some very special recipes, like a variety of savory cookies and cookies like the Puffed Grain and Miso Cookies.
 
I have tried the cover’s World Peace Cookies, a memorable cookie that is both sandy and chewy, and that lives up to its name; as Dorie has said, “If everyone had it, peace would reign o’er the planet.”  I have made it on multiple occasions, and it always turns out perfectly, despite the inconsistent dough, just as she says it will. Another cookie I tried are the Goat Cheese and Chive Cookies, a savory shortbread, perfect for an appetizer tray or cocktail party.
 
There are so many recipes in this huge book to try, like the Lemon Sugar Cookies, Chocolate Pecan Pie Bars, Hamantaschen with homemade jam, French Snacklettes in a pyramid shape, Blueberry Buttermilk Pie Bars, and Coffee Cardamom Cookies, to name a few. Whether you are looking for an everyday treat, or like to test and plan in advance for your annual cookie swap, this book has a little something for any cookie maker.
