One Sweet Cookie Celebrated Chefs Share Favorite Recipes by Tracey Zabar

A delectable collection of cookie recipes from New York's best chefs, pastry chefs, and bakers. Cookies are the perfect end to a wonderful meal. One-bite meringues and macaroons melt in your mouth, while linzers and tuiles are the ultimate fanciful confections. Tracey Zabar has selected distinctly original cookie recipes from seventy-five of the very best culinary talents in Manhattan. Some are the chefs' personal recipes, while others are the signature creations of top restaurants-Le Cirque, Eleven Madison Park, Gramercy Tavern, Artisanal, City Bakery, Felidia, Daniel, and Blue Hill at Stone Barns are included in this scrumptious mix.This irresistible array of more than ninety confectionary recipes for the home baker includes butterscotch and oatmeal cowboy cookies from Chef Mario Batali and his son Benno; coconut macaroons from master baker Sarabeth Levine; a chocolate chip cookie invented by Chef Todd English of Olives that combines his children's favorite chocolate flavors with walnuts; Chef Jason Weiner of Almond's rugelach; and Eli Zabar's tempting buttery sugar cookies. There are also international cookies-Jammy Dodgers from England, wedding cookies from Puerto Rico, Kipferl from Austria, and Lamingtons from Australia. And chefs Francois Payard, Andre Soltner, and Daniel Boulud have added artful creations to the plate. This beautifully photographed book will not only appeal to discriminating dessert lovers but also to fans of New York City's culinary scene, the cookie-swap aficionado, and the bake-sale maven.
