Simply Sensational Cookies (2012) Nancy Baggett

Simply Sensatoinal CookiesSo, maybe I have a problem.

This is the fourth cookbook–dessert cookbook (and third cookie book)–I’ve finished in a week.

But I love baking. What can I say? And I’m always looking for just that perfect cookie.

I have two other of Nancy Baggett’s dessert cookbooks, so when this one came up as a daily deal, I simply couldn’t resist.

Lots of pictures.

Organized by cookies type (drop, rolled, bars, etc).

And a very useful chapter at the end of frostings, fillings, and finishing touches.

I’ll admit that I am extremely picky about frosting. Anything you get at a grocery store? ACK! PTOOIE! Nasty. But the more I read into this chapter, the more excited I got–using natural ingredients to create colored frostings and sugars–with flavor?! YUM! Some of them are obvious, like using grape juice concentrate for making purple frosting, but I’d never consider (and should have!) using citrus zest for colored and flavored sugars. Or lavender flowers.

I have a lot of pages marked in this book, for things I want to try. Like Iced Lemon Drops. Or Carrot Drop Cookies with Cream Cheese Glaze. Or Browned Butter-Pecan Shortbread. Or Vanilla-Cream Sandwiches. Or Chocolate Whoopie Pies with Raspberry Creme Filling. Or Frosted Strawberry or Raspberry Swirls.

I really wanna make Frosted Strawberry Swirls.

So I’ve got lots lined up, and we’ll see how things turn out.
