Martha Stewart’s latest cookbook keeps it plain and simple. And wonderful.
The title – “Cookies” – says it all. On offer are 175 recipes lushly and elegantly photographed. They are simple, beautiful and tempting, such as the Dark Chocolate Cookies with Sour Cherries or Cappuccino- Chocolate Bites.
The book’s real strength is its intuitiveness. The chapters are organized by cookie type – light and delicate, soft and chewy, crumbly and sandy, rich and dense, etc.
Even better is the table of contents, which is rendered graphically with a photo of each cookie. It’s a design that truly plays to the way people use cookbooks.
The back of the book also offers plenty of tips on tools, techniques and, of course, packaging.
