Yes, yes, I know. Everyone is either no-carb or low carb. But go ahead and treat yourself. As we all know, nothing is quite as good as a warm chocolate chip cookie from the oven, and really, you only have to eat just one.

Not only is this book filled with wonderful recipes and photographs, but it is also laced with fascinating cookie lore. This one is a definite keeper.
by Eric Mulvany, Betty Crocker Editors
This was always one of my favorite cookbooks to look through when I was a kid. There is the most fab cookie house to make in this book. My mother just recently sent me my beloved grandmother’s copy of this book, and if a heaven forbid, a fire breaks out, it will be the first thing I will grab.

The photographs in this cookbook are to die for. They really are cookie porn. The recipes are very easy to follow. I am a scratch baker, but for those that aren’t, there are even recipes that start with using a cake or cookie mix.

This book contains recipes for old standards like Peanut Butter cookies to the more sophisticated Triple Ginger-Pecan Biscotti. I also like that the author explains some common baking problems and their solutions.

Leave it to Martha to come up with a unique organizing system for this wonderful cookbook. All of the recipes are organized by texture. For example, "Rich and Dense" would include Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies and Mint Sandwiches while "Cakey and Tender" would include Madeleines and Carrot Cake Cookies.

So you thought those cookies with the cocoa, oatmeal and peanut butter was the only no-bake cookies out there? No way. This very fun book is full of scrumptious easy to make recipes.
by Rose Levy Beranbaum
I have been a huge fan of the author for years. After all she wrote The Cake Bible. This book contains great cookie recipes, but in Rose’s unique precise way she also tells you the best tools to use when baking, as well as other baking tips. This book also contains pictorial demonstrations, which come in so handy.
Recommending books so good, they'll keep you up past your bedtime. more...
