The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion
The Essential Cookie Cookbook


Cookie Companion Vinegar. Ammonia. And...Chocolate Chips? For more than a century, the employee-owners of King Arthur Flour Company have known any ingredient possible for making great cookies. (You can add vinegar to chocolate chip cookies or ammonia to sugar cookies to enhance the taste and texture.) Now, King Arthur Flour has compiled all their know-how and ingredients for mouthwatering cookies in their new book, The The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion: The Essential Cookie Cookbook.

The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion is the follow-up to the acclaimed King Arthur Flour Baker's Companion (2003), which won The James Beard Foundation's coveted KitchenAid Cookbook of the Year award. The new book features hundreds of cookie recipes divided into "nine essential" categories: brownies, chocolate chip cookies, oatmeal cookies, molasses-ginger cookies, sugar cookies, peanut butter cookies, shortbread, decorated cookies, and biscotti. It's the ultimate cookie companion for any occasion.

From the traditional to exotic creations like Ossi da Morto (Bones of the Dead), Cats' Tongues, and Birds' Nests, to miraculous cookies made from batter, each cookie in The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion starts with a master recipe and includes variations to reflect different tastes, textures, and ingredients. The King Arthur Flour Cookie Companion can teach you any cookie and help you learn:

• Detailed techniques for turning cookie batters into cones, edible bowls, and beautiful holiday creations
• Decorating instructions and ideas for making cookies into dramatic creations for themed parties, birthdays, and holidays
• Old world favorites including pizzelles, krumkake, and spritz cookies
• Recipes for icings, fillings, and dips
• How to weigh and measure and even substitute ingredients when you realize that you've run out of something essential or need to eliminate an ingredient
After 100-plus years of baking and teaching more than 25,000 students per year, the expert bakers at King Arthur Flour have researched, baked, and tasted almost all of the world's best cookies. This all-inclusive, must-have baking resource is the sweet result of their passion for everything cookie.
