On this book:
 A new, edgier take on baking cookies, from a James Beard Award-winning chef and the owner of the popular Chicago restaurant, HotChocolate.

Mindy Segal is serious about cookies. And Cookie Love is your new go-to, never-fail reference for turn-out-perfectly-every-time cookie recipes.

From Peanut Butter Peanut Brittle Cookies and Fleur de Sel Shortbread with Vanilla Halvah, to Malted Milk Spritz and Peaches and Cream Thumbprints, Segal’s recipes are inspired and far from expected. Inside you’ll find more than sixty perfected recipes for every kind of cookie including drop cookies, bars, sandwich cookies, shortbread, thumbprints, and more, as well as the best tricks and tools of the trade and everything you need to know to build the ideal cookie pantry. A must-have for anyone looking to up their cookie-baking game, Cookie Love is a celebration of the most humble, delicious, and wonderful of baked treats.
Oh my god, I was SO excited when I received this- I almost hugged the UPS guy. This book has so many fascinating cookie recipes. There were recipes of cookies I never even know existed but I actually want to try.I have actually never made snicker doodles - I could never find a good recipe. I was so glad to see that this book brings a recipe for them. I will be trying that one out as soon as possible (I couldn't today because I realized there were no eggs).

 I am also really excited about trying out the chocolate chip cookie recipe as well. Just looking at the pictures I was about to drool. It was just awesome. I am going to be referring to this book every time I bake something new. I am sure my family won't mind that, lol. 

I got a lot more from this book than I was expecting. I expected a smaller amount of recipes but I got so much more and A LOT of variety. I'm going to be filling my house with cookies from Cookie Love. I cannot wait. ♥♥♥

They were a little too salty for me (the recipe calls for sea salt) but I think that just removing the bit of sea salt used, they would have been perfect. Soft on the inside and slightly crunchy on the outside. I loved it.
