Golden Rules

1. Take it to the next level.

The recipes in this book make ordinary cookies absolutely extraordinary. Whether a classic with a twist, like the Tahini Cookies (page 00) and the Key Lime Sablés (page 00), or an embellished creation, like the Cherry Blossom Cookies (page 00) and the Birch Bark Tuiles (page 00), these treats will introduce you to new flavors, textures, and techniques. We utilized equipment that isn’t traditionally used for cookies (think madeleine pans and meat mallets), tried new toppings, and tested unusual flavor combinations for old favorites. But above all, we made sure every cookie was delicious.

2. Be prepared.

To avoid any surprises, read through the recipe before getting started, and have your ingredients measured and prepped. Does the butter need to be at room temperature or melted? Should the nuts be toasted and the chocolate chopped? Have you measured the dry ingredients? A good mise en place ensures a smooth baking process.

3. Get to know your oven.

All ovens are different and may vary in temperature, so it’s smart to keep a stand-alone thermometer in the oven for accuracy. Since most cookies are small and don’t bake for very long, you should set a timer and also keep an eye out for other doneness cues. Some cookies should be dry and firm to the touch, others golden at the edges or just barely set.

4. Set up the racks.

For one sheet of cookies, place the rack in the center of the oven. If baking two sheets at a time, racks should be in the upper and lower thirds. Halfway through the baking time, rotate the sheets top to bottom and turn them front to back to ensure even baking.

5. Line the baking sheets.

Line baking sheets with parchment or silicone baking mats for easy cleanup and even baking. They provide some insulation and can prevent scorching on the bottom of your cookies.

6. Take time to chill.

If a recipe calls for chilling the cookie dough, don’t skip this important step, as it will affect the final outcome. (Be sure to factor chilling and resting into your total baking time.) Chilling keeps butter solid, so the dough is less likely to spread during baking. It also concentrates flavor, allowing the sugar time to absorb more liquid. You’ll have more golden-colored cookies with chewy, crispy spots throughout.

7. Store your cookies properly.

Let the cookies cool completely before storing, as trapped heat will make the cookies soggy, and layer them between waxed paper or parchment so they don’t stick together. Crunchy cookies and soft cookies shouldn’t be stored in the same container; the crisp ones will absorb the moisture from the others and lose their snap. Most cookies will keep for about three days, some are best the day of, and a few can keep for weeks or even improve over time, such as shortbread and biscotti—if they last that long.

All Dressed Up


Trading in the everyday for something far more special, these cookies take it to the next level in shape, color, and flavor. They’re frosted, dusted, swirled, and embellished—thoroughly dressed to impress.

Pastel Butter Cookies

Makes 40

To give a batch of almond shortbread cookies the pastel treatment, dust them with tinted confectioners’ sugar. We blended the sugar with finely ground freeze-dried fruits (blueberry, raspberry, and mango) for subtle, all-natural hues.

1 cup whole blanched almonds, toasted
2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon coarse salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 sticks (1 cup) unsalted butter, room temperature
1 cup confectioners’ sugar, sifted, plus more for pastel sugars
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
Freeze-dried fruits in various colors, such as blueberries, raspberries, and mangoes

1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Place toasted almonds in the bowl of a food processor. Add flour, salt, and cinnamon, and process until nuts are finely ground, about 1 minute.

2. In a medium bowl, with an electric mixer on medium, beat butter and sugar until pale and fluffy, about 4 minutes. Add vanilla and beat until combined. With mixer on low, gradually add almond mixture and beat until just incorporated.

3. Using a 11/2‑inch (1‑tablespoon) cookie scoop, drop dough onto parchment-lined baking sheets, spacing about 1 inch apart. Bake, rotating halfway through, until edges are just turning golden, 14 to 16 minutes. Transfer sheets to a wire rack and let cool completely.

4. For each desired color, place 1/2 cup fruit with 1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar in the bowl of a food processor; process until smooth and evenly tinted. (Sugars can be stored in airtight containers up to 1 month.) Place tinted sugars in small bowls and dip cookies, domed-side down, into tinted sugars to coat. Transfer to a plate and let rest, about 30 minutes. (Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature up to 1 week.)

TIP
We used natural food coloring from freeze-dried fruits (found in the snack section of large grocery stores) to decorate these cookies, but for a broader palette of colors, look for the array of pastel powdered sugars at specialty baking stores.

In order to get the most from this new cookie book you have to like lots of royal icing, lots of sandwich cookies and lots of spice, particularly ginger. You also have to be prepared for the fact that most of these recipes take longer and are fussier than the usual cookie recipe, e.g. lots of chilling and/or freezing time for both dough and shaped cookies; use of aspic cutters to create tops of sandwich cookies.
The book is divided somewhat arbitrarily into seven sections, partly dependent on whether you want to fuss with icing, fuss with shape, or produce a pseudo-cookie like whoopie pies. The section on giant cookies seems the most pointless, including 13 recipes, three of which are baked as one but served in normal portions. Even in the lovely photographs provided the "giants" look over-blown and unappetizing to me.
A small niggle: there is no list of suppliers for any of the specialized molds or tools used to create many of the special effects the book is intended to showcase. (I must say that I would like to meet the baker who thought of using a crocheted doily to provide the surface texture for the Glazed Spiced Snowflakes!)
I don''t doubt that most if not all of the recipes will work as shown and taste good. I do wonder if some of them will be worth the considerable investment of time and energy. If you make cookies to brighten a lunchbox, supply a picnic, or fill a cookie jar, you will be better advised to get a copy of Martha Stewart''s Cookies, published in 2008 and still available. It has nearly twice as many recipes, some quite fancy but most straightforward and easy to do. My copy is falling to bits from frequent use and is one of the few recipe books I would hate to be without.

I bought this book for one recipe, a recipe I already had (printed from online 21 years ago). I wanted a nice clean version of Key Lime Sables. This book presents a completely different recipe for "Key Lime Sables." Different proportions, different recommended rolling thickness, and no mention of the lime curd. The "original" Key Lime Sable recipe, as Cookie of the Week (Sep. 28, 1998) is a truly award-winning cookie and I highly recommend it.

This Christmas I wanted to make a bunch of different cookies, completely unique to the standard Christmas cut-outs that I typically make. This book is full of interesting ideas. There are awesome pictures for each mouthwatering cookie.

I will update this post, as to how tried and true the recipes actually are. Many cookbooks unfortunately have recipes that look great, but don’t work. I’m a retired chef, so I will update later with my discoveries.

It''s maybe unfair but I loved the first cookie books MS wrote, and use it often. I had high expectations for this book, and this book is good, but not as good as her first one.

Still, there are some good recipes in here. Many are a little fiddly and have multiple steps but some are easy and fast. So far they have all tasted good.

I like the brown butter crinkle cookies. yes, you have to brown the butter first, but oh the nutty deep flavor this gives is amazing. It''s such a fun take on a crinkle cookie.

I will agree that there are a lot of sandwich cookies. There are also fun and inventive cookies. Pumpkin snickerdoodles are perfect for this time of year.

chocolate malt sandwich cookies are deep, dark. malty goodness.

While the recipes can be a bit fiddly and fussy, the directions ensure they will turn out. The pictures are beautiful. The recipes have a short introductory paragraph, ingredients listed and easy to find or source, then the directions in clear concise directions.

So, there''s nothing new here, but it is a good compendium of Martha classics, and I liked the smaller size. The photos are great, and the recipes are clear. I collect baking books, so, I''ll keep it, but it''s a disappointment.

I own both "Martha Stewart''s Cookies" and this one and I have to say that they are really different. The MS Cookies book was one of my favorite cookie cookbooks so I was excited to see another cookie book from Martha Stewart. The recipes in this book are bold, delicious and beautiful. There are more decorative and festive cookies The flavors are bolder compared to those in her other cookie book. The last chapter, Chapter 7 is dedicated to "celebration cookies". I am glad I bought this book. The flavors are good.
