This latest volume in the popular The Art of ... Series of specialty cookbooks brings to you a wonderful collection of recipes for cookies of all types, shapes, and sizes -- for every occasion, or no occasion at all. 

Cookies may be candy-like confections, or like cake. They may be baked as tiny tarts, or like French pastries. In this book are collected the best of each kind -- Plain and Fancy. To make it easy for devotees to find "just the right cookie" for each occasion, chapters are planned according to the times when cookies are most in demand, from school lunches to formal teas.
