    Book Description
    It's out there somewhere--the ultimate chocolate chip cookie, perfectly baked, perfectly formed, heaped with divine chocolate pieces. In fact, the recipe for that dream cookie may well be found nestled in the pages of The Search for the Perfect Chocolate Chip Cookie. The story behind this cookbook is intriguing. A small guest house in western Massachusetts (well known for its own home-cooked cookies) sponsored a competition to find the best cookie recipe in America. More than 2,600 recipes flooded in, and over 100 of the best grace the pages of this book. Every imaginable cookie variation is here--yogurt, ice cream, honey, pumpkin--even potato chips! Undoubtedly, many of these recipes are family secrets; others have been concocted through experimentation and chocolate chip innovation. Yet the beauty of all of these tasty treats is their simplicity. All that's required is basic cookie dough, mixed with that extra-special ingredient--be it shredded apple for Apple Orchard Chocolate Chippers, or a small cup of Kahlua for the tempting Kahlua Coconut Chocolate Chip Cookies. Some recipes are strange to say the least. How about Zesty Zucchini Chocolate Chip Cookies for a truly distinctive cookie? Aside from wonderful recipes, the book also provides handy hints for the storing, mixing, and baking of this favorite indulgence food. --Naomi Gesinger --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
