    Book Description
    From Library Journal
    Healy, who runs a cooking school in Boulder, Colorado, and Bugat, a French patissier, are the authors of Mastering the Art of French Pastry (Barron, 1984). Now they focus on a more specific area, with dozens of recipes for cookies of all sorts. Recipes are organized by type of batter or dough, and each chapter opens with a lengthy, detailed introduction on techniques, ingredients, and even the science involved. In fact, the amount of detail is likely to be off-putting to many American home cooks, who generally like their cookie recipes fun and easy (not that Americans don't appreciate rich, delicate cookies, but chewy, crunchy, and gooey are bigger favorites). However, pastry chefs, culinary historians, and ambitious home bakers will find lots of information and little-known recipes here. Useful as a reference as well as a cookbook, this is suitable for larger pastry collections.
