This is a beautiful, impressive cook book! It is filled with hundreds of recipes and alternatives (add-ins, flavor changes, etc) and each recipe has a gorgeous photograph ( I love that!). The book offers everything you'd expect from America's Test Kitchen, including the science behind the recipe, why you use this ingredient and not that one, and reasons that your recipe may have failed and how to correct it. Overall, great selection of cookies, bars, and brownies, and includes some candy and some gluten free cookies. If you watch ATK, you'll recognize some of the recipes and many of the ingredients and equipment used. The ONLY thing that would have made this book better would be to have the nutritional information for each recipe. That is not included and I really would have appreciated it.

I don't like to review cookbooks until I've made a few recipes. So I made a couple cookies recipes on the weekend and they turned out fabulous.
The recipes are easy to read, easy to follow and there are lots of great tips.

Such a great book! I liked it so much that I ended up buying a copy. The chocolate chip cookies are delicious and a double batch vanished within 15min

The Perfect Cookie is the perfect cookie book. America's Test Kitchen does such a wonderful job on all their cookbooks. This one is no exception. All the favorites are here. ATK does a wonderfuljob of explaining why you are doing what you're doing and 'why it works'. Their pictures of the process and the finished products are simple but explanatory.

Yes, they are the perfect cookie, bar or whatever if you have no health issues to contend with like watching butter and sugar and white flour intake. In that case, look elsewhere.

Great cookie recipe cookbook. Pick this one up if you’re looking for delicious and not always easy cookies.

Exactly what you'd expect from America's Test Kitchen, these recipes are carefully curated, with detailed instructions that produce small batches (usually around 2 dozen) of amazing cookies. I'd call this the only cookie cookbook you'll ever need.
