Description: Almond bars, Brownies, Macaroons and Lady Fingers, Marzipan, Meringues and Kisses -- this book offers a cornucopia of cookies. These are the old favorites from grandmother's cookie jar (Oatmeal, Molasses, and Lemon cookies) as well as many new unusual cookie concoctions (Sour Cream Drops, Raisin-Pecan Crunch Delights and Spritz Rosettes.) There is a section of Holiday Cookies including special treats from all over the world. This handsome book, illustrated with photographs throughout, contains more than 300 recipes set up in a unique easy-to-follow format. Instructions are placed directly opposite the groups of ingredients as they are added, and so each step is complete as you go along. 

The recipes are arranged by type of pastry from Almond Cookies to Walnut Cookies. There is a section at the end, of Fillings, Icings, Toppings and Whips which can be used on many different kinds of cookies. At the beginning of the book, a section entitled Cookie Helpers lists the essential kitchen equipment you will need. Every recipe is thoroughly indexed by name and major ingredients. 

Cookie Cookery is the product of a lifetime of testing and experimentation by a professional husband and wife team of pastry chefs John and Hazel Zenker. Trained in Europe, Mr. Zenker was for many years executive pastry chef in a number of the finest hotels and clubs in Chicago while conducting his own cake decorating school. In 1961 he was asked to go to Washington to design and decorate the cake for President John F. Kennedy's forty-fourth birthday. Cookie Cookery is a book for every woman who has ever baked.
