A delectable collection of cookie recipes from New York’s best chefs, pastry chefs, and bakers. Cookies are the perfect end to a wonderful meal. One-bite meringues and macaroons melt in your mouth, while linzers and tuiles are the ultimate fanciful confections. Tracey Zabar has selected distinctly original cookie recipes from seventy-five of the very best culinary talents in Manhattan. Some are the chefs’ personal recipes, while others are the signature creations of top restaurants-Le Cirque, Eleven Madison Park, Gramercy Tavern, Artisanal, City Bakery, Felidia, Daniel, and Blue Hill at Stone Barns are included in this scrumptious mix. This irresistible array of more than ninety confectionary recipes for the home baker includes butterscotch and oatmeal cowboy cookies from Chef Mario Batali and his son Benno; coconut macaroons from master baker Sarabeth Levine; a chocolate chip cookie invented by Chef Todd English of Olives that combines his children’s favorite chocolate flavors with walnuts; Chef Jason Weiner of Almond’s rugelach; and Eli Zabar’s tempting buttery sugar cookies. There are also international cookies-Jammy Dodgers from England, wedding cookies from Puerto Rico, Kipferl from Austria, and Lamingtons from Australia. And chefs Francois Payard, Andre Soltner, and Daniel Boulud have added artful creations to the plate. This beautifully photographed book will not only appeal to discriminating dessert lovers but also to fans of New York City’s culinary scene, the cookie-swap aficionado, and the bake-sale maven.

..I LOVE this book!!! Every page is sooo beautiful! I've looked through this book countless times already. Yesterday I baked "Todd's favorite triple chocolate and walnut cookies", page 78, and took them to a party - they were a real hit! More than one person asked for the recipe...All I can say is: you REALLY have to buy this book. It's gorgeous, has lots of pictures, the recipes are precise and easy to follow, AND THE COOKIES ARE TO DIE FOR! Honestly, you won't regret buying it!
I recently purchased this cookbook when a friend of mine raved about it. I have only tried two cookies and both were terrific. The first was Tracy Zabar's,"Chumleys" made with pecans, chocolate chips and brown sugar. I made them in a square brownie pan so they were thick and then cut them the size of a biscotti and sent them off to my daughter at college. The kids have been asking me to make them again. The second cookie I made was the coconut chocolate chip. This was my favorite and one of the best cookies I have ever had. My friend made the sugar topped molasses spice cookies and said they were delicious too.
The book is well formatted with pictures of the cookies and directions are clear. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys making cookies.
We heard of this book because of the Facebook group Cookbook Junkies. I borrowed it from the library and we loved it so much that we bought it immediately! The Jacques Torres Chocolate Chip Cookie is a new household favorite!!
