A note from the author
I have been baking cookies since I can remember, and they were one of the first things I ever learnt to cook. In this book there are some classic, popular cookies in addition to some lesser-known recipes, some of which I have designed, some have been passed down the generations.
The smell of cookies baking in the oven will forever conjure up images of comfort, relaxation and of sharing with friends and family. This is the reason I love baking cookies so much, they are more than just a sweet treat, they are the ultimate way of sharing the things we love the most.
I really hope you enjoy my cookie book and get as much enjoyment and pleasure from baking these wonderful little treats as I do. If you do like it, please share it as you would your cookies!
Aside from the excellent recipes, I learnt so much from the informative section at the beginning of the book. It breaks down the processes involved in cooking cookies and gives a fantastic overview to make life a lot easier when cooking cookies.
This first section is worth buying the book in itself.
This is a real gem of a cookbook. The recipes that I have tried are excellent and you can tell that Linda Johnson is a passionate cook.
At the end of the recipe there are additional notes highlighting possible changes that could be made, and which ones to avoid. I found this extremely useful as some members of my family have allergies to some foods, so I can change the recipes to suit them. There are even a few recipes at the end of the book that Linda has cooked for friends and family with specific dietary needs, excellent!
