Sweet treats! 


The Baking Book for Every Kitchen, with Class Cookies, Novel Treats, Brownie, Bars, and More
by Sarah Keiffer

From celebrated blogger Sarah Kieffer of The Vanilla Bean Baking Blog!

100 Cookies is a go-to baking resource featuring 100 recipes for cookies and bars, organized into seven chapters.

Chocolatey, fruity, crispy, chewy, classic, inventive—there's a foolproof recipe for the perfect treat for everyone in this book.

• Introduces innovative baking techniques
• Includes an entire chapter dedicated to Kieffer's "pan banging" technique that ensures crisp edges and soft centers for the most delicious cookies
• Nearly every recipe is accompanied by a photograph.

Recipes range from the Classic Chocolate Chip made three different ways, to bars, brownies, and blondies that reflect a wide range of flavors and global inspiration.

This is the comprehensive-yet-charming cookbook every cookie lover (or those who love to bake cookies) needs.


There’s a very slim chance I’m ever going to say no to a cookbook that features cookies. And I very happy that I didn’t say no to this one.

100 COOKIES: The Baking Book For Every Kitchen, with Classic Cookies, Novel Treats, Brownies, Bars, and More, won my heart and stomach 100 times over. From traditional cookies and bars, to creations, and combinations I have never heard of, author Sarah Kieffer offers so many recipes for these sweet delights, that you’ll never run out of amazing treats for friends, family or yourself!

Starting with a long and very detailed introduction, you’ll not only learn a bit about the author, she offers baking advice and tips, standard ingredients that are needed for just about any cookies recipe, and the equipment you will use.

And then we’re on to the best part of the book, the cookies! Broken down into chapters on the different types of fabulous confections, checkout some of the major yums will find in 100 COOKIES. Brown Butter Chocolate Chip Cookies, Brownie Cookies, Ginger Cookies, Shortbread, Swirl Brownies Two Ways, White Chocolate Red Velvet Brownies, Cinnamon Roll Brownies, Raspberry Rye Cookies, Banana Cream Pie Bars, Red Wine Cherry Cheesecake Swirl Bars, Smoky Butterscotch Cookies, Carrot Cake Bars with Meringue, Kitchen Sink Cookies, Caramel Bars with Candied Peanuts, Chocolate Malt Ice Box Bars, also Pastry CrΓ¨me, Ermine Buttercream, Caramel Shards, and so, so much more!

There are some wonderful color photos that made my mouth water, as I’m sure they will yours. I believe there was one for each recipe, are at the least, most of the recipes. I was glad to see that. Cookbooks with no photos are a pet peeve of mine.

In closing, the author suggests Music to Bake To, offers a conversion list, and her resources.

All in all, 100 COOKIES: The Baking Book For Every Kitchen, with Classic Cookies, Novel Treats, Brownies, Bars, and More  was fulfilling and left me sated.
