The Cookiepedia: Mixing Baking, and Reinventing the Classics (Hardback)Stacy Adimando (author)
'Think what a better place the world would be if we all, the whole world, had cookies and milk about three o'clock every afternoon and then lay down on our blankets for a nap'. - Robert Fulghum. "The Cookiepedia" is a trusty, durable, and cozy-cute cookie book reminiscent of the old Betty Crocker volumes and hand-bound church-group cookbooks made by our mothers and grandmothers. Inside, you'll find easy illustrated instructions for all the classic homemade cookie recipes: chocolaty cookie classics like whoopie pies, chocolate crinkles, triple chocolate cookies, and chocolate mint; things that will put the Girl Scouts to shame; pretty patterned cookies like pinwheels, checkerboard cookies, black-and-white cookies, and Rainbow cookies; boozy cookies like bourbon balls and eggnog cookies, perfect for holiday cheer; fancy treats from gooey alfajores to delicate madeleines make any tea party special; and, more! A lovely lie-flat wire binding invites bakers to roll up their sleeves, make a mess, and have fun! This is no glossy celebrity product - it's a trusty, durable, back-to-basics cookie cookbook that invites you to write notes on your recipes.
With playful ideas like slipping secret messages into handmade fortune cookies, templates for cookie-swap gift cards, and creative storing and packaging tricks like freezing cookie dough balls in Ball jars so they're ready to bake off on a rainy day, "The Cookiepedia" contains everything you need to take over the world, one batch of cookies at a time!

“An encyclopedia of cookies. Oh yes. Buttery, chocolaty, fancy, fruity, spicy and nutty cookies fill the pages of this super cute book. It lays flat, too. Love that.”—Bakerella“A spiral-bound cookbook bursting with more than 50 inspired cookie recipes, it’s set apart by fun extras: funky drawings, tips and tricks, copious room for recipe notes, and more.”—Grandparents.com“All cookie lovers will enjoy preparing and improvising on classic cookies with this scrumptious cookbook.”—Library Journal“For a decidedly fun, down-to-earth approach to baking, this one certainly looks the part: a notebook with a kraft paper cover, wire-bound pages, and simple line illustrations. But there's more to this than looks. While Adimando arms you with the basics, there's the intention and hope that you'll be inspired to create your own.”—Epicurious“The Cookiepedia is written in a fresh, friendly style, like having a sister or a buddy in the kitchen with you.”—Sacramento Bee“If you don't already own a great cookie baking book with standards and classics, this one will do the trick.

It's accessible, fresh, fun, and inspiring.”—Apartment Therapy: The Kitchn“The recipes, delightful hand-drawn illustrations, and full-color photographs make [The Cookiepedia] an absolute delight.”—TucsonCitizen.com“Totally fun…”—Chicago Daily Herald“Every baker needs a go-to cookie book for basic standbys. This cute cookbook is it, and it makes the perfect stocking stuffer.”—FoodNetwork.com
