All About Cookies: A Milk Bar Baking Book

Clarkson Potter. Nov. 2022. 272p. ISBN 9780593231975. $35. COOKING
Tosi (All About Cake), founder of cookie-laden Milk Bar, brings readers a recipe book that is like no other. She is known for her extraordinary flavors and funky combinations, and does not disappoint here. In the introduction, she talks about her previous books as being the “past”; this one is her “present.” There is nothing in this book that even an experienced baker has likely seen before. Her cookies include using toasted Ritz crackers filled with something yummy and iced with something luscious. Another offering: Triscuit bars that contain ground crackers and are then formed to look like Triscuits again. Bar cookies, sandwich cookies, crunchy, chewy beautiful and homely cookies are also included. Her recipes require a bit of baking knowledge and a budget that will absorb the cost of French butter and freeze-dried corn among other ingredients. Adding to the effect, the photos of the cookies are beautiful, the ones of the professional kitchen are inspirational, and the introductions to each recipe are encouraging.
VERDICT A good addition to any comprehensive baking collection (as both a guide and an enjoyable read).
