Award-winning baking author Nancy Baggett is taking on her favorite subject again with Simply Sensational Cookies. While Nancy appreciates the homey, traditional side of cookie baking, she also understands that today's home bakers are more sophisticated about flavors and ingredients, and they're looking for innovative techniques and preparations as well.
Just like Nancy did with her successful book Kneadlessly Simple, which updated bread baking for people looking for easy, fuss-free (and great-tasting) recipes, she now tackles cookie baking with a fresh eye. The book will include 208 recipes (plus 50 sub-recipes and variations) with loads of "wow" power, making use of ingredients like herbs, spices, berries, fruits, green tea, and even hot peppers. Forget about old-fashioned, synthetic food dyes -- Nancy uses "naturally beautiful" icings, sugars, and sprinkles that get their color and flavor from fruit juices, berry powders, and citrus zests. There are cracker-like "cross-over" snacking cookies and cocktail nibbles, becuase not all cookies have to be sweet anymore. And for busy homemakers, there are assorted no-bake (great for kids), semi-scratch, and extra-easy recipes as well, with clever time-saving tips throughout, truly making this a cookie book for a new generation. The gorgeous photography throughout was shot by popular bloggers Todd Porter and Diane Cu (whiteonricecouple.com).
