More info about One Sweet Cookie
Tracey Zabar is a self-proclaimed cookie addict! One way to satisfy her obsession is to host an old-fashioned cookie swap in her home. Zabar’s family have been honoring this tradition for more than 50 years, and she looks forward every year to gathering with her friends to share favorite recipes and cookies. It was at one of these cookie swaps where the idea for her new book ONE SWEET COOKIE: Celebrated Chefs Share Favorite Recipes was born. Zabar thought how much her fellow cookie lovers would appreciate a book that not only shares some of her and her family’s beloved recipes, but also the recipes of some of the country’s most renowned chefs and bakers – a virtual cookie swap featuring signature recipes and baker’s secrets from the biggest names in the food world.
Zabar embarked on a cookie quest and returned with Mario Batali’s Crazy Cowboy Cookies, Daniel Boulud’s Bougres de Lyon, Laurent Tourondel’s Sugar-Topped Molasses Spice Cookies, Lidia Bastianich’s Orange Cookies, François Payard’s Flourless Chocolate Cookies, and Thomas Keller’s Ice Cream Sandwiches. And, with each recipe, comes a personal (and amusing) anecdote. As Zabar’s recipe collection grew to 100 recipes from more than 60 contributors, she discovered that she had acquired an international array of sweet treats with flavors ranging from the traditional chocolate, lemon, and mint to the exotic with cardamom and pepper. Rounding out the stellar recipes is Zabar’s own baking wisdom covering everything from recommended ingredients to keep a well-stocked baker’s pantry, essential baking equipment for creating the perfect cookie, and a wealth of tips and time-saving techniques.
From bars and biscotti to meringues and macaroons, ONE SWEET COOKIE will become an instant classic and goto cookie book for a variety of indulgent occasions.
