I had this cookie book, then gave it to a friend. Couldn't live without it, had to replaced it. These recipes are very well written, and delicious. It's work the shelf space if only for the peanut butter cookie recipe. I replaced peanut oil with walnut oil.-Buzygismo
Okay, so per the title of my review, I have had 98% success with this book. If I could give it a 4.5 star rating that would be my preference. However, that is neither here nor there. I borrowed this book from the library about 11 years ago and ended up buying it. After trying only a few recipes it sat in my cupboard unused mostly because I went on an 8 year ultra healthy kick which didn't include anything in this book. In the last year I have been baking quite a few recipes from this book and most of them have been instant hits.-A. Jones
This book lives up to it's name by being a collection of recipes originating in many different American regions, as reported in old, regional cookbooks. I've baked many cookies from this book and they have all exactly met expectations. But, the book does not just provide a source of very good cookie recipes, it also paints a little portrait of thow a cuisine changes due to changing access to ingredients and cooking equipment. Many of the recipes date from the middle to the late 19th century because lots of important cookie ingredients such as both chocolate and vanilla did not become commonly available to the American baker until that time. Similarly, temperature controlled ovens did not become available until the late 19th century which is important since cookies are much more sensitive to temperature control than larger, more important.-B.
