The Good Stuff
•The spiral binding of this is outstanding and oh so practical. Easy to lay open and flat so that you can easily consult your recipe without damaging or getting cookie dough all over the book (Quirk has the most practical cookbooks)
•As usual the wife likes to comment on the index and this one she says is very well detailed and organized -- a virtual librarians dream (chocolate & organized stuff)
•Recipes are easy to follow and use ingredients that are readily available
•The sh

I love this book. It's a definite must for anyone who loves to eat cookie dough and has the voice in the back of his or her head saying, "You might get salmonella!" No salmonella found in these egg-free recipes! I've already made quite a few recipes, and all of them are great.

It made me crave fruit by the time I finished reading through it just to offset the amount of sugar I absorbed through the pages. Definitely for the extreme lover of cookie dough.

Review originally posted over here at my blog.
I love cooking, I love baking. I also love cookbooks. I don’t necessarily cook anything in the cookbooks, but I do love them. I like to read them before bed. I’ll read them in a long bath (not that I get many of them). I take them to the doctor with me. I love to look at them at the book store. I prefer the ones with pictures (I’m a lot like my nine year old that way) because it makes the food come to life. I also read them. Not just skim them, but r

This is me. I probably eat about 2 cookies worth of dough before it's all said and done. And then I don't want the cookies. lol So when Quirk sent me this cookbook, I was over the moon!

So you know I got busy...well once I remembered to pick up the stuff. I didn't want just chocolate chips, I wanted something that was just for me. I bought toffee bits and mini chocolate chips (these are what Lindsay recommends for the chocolate chip cookie dough). At the beginning of the

If you're thinking that her name is familiar, it's probably because Lindsay is the blogger of Love and Olive Oil. She's come up with the perfect, egg-free cookie dough that tastes great and is easy to make. We were scratching our heads and wondering how a whole cookbook could possibly feature cookie dough, we were pleasantly surprised. The book features treats such as Cooke Dough Crème Brûlée, Cookie Dough Whoope Pies, Malted Cookie Dough Milkshakes, Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough Ice Cream, ...more

I've never reviewed a cookbook here before, and I'm totally not sure of the criteria and all that so I'm winging it.

What I enjoyed: The spiral binding; the quirkiness of the recipes; the concise instructions; and the beautiful photos of each item.

What I found lacking: I would have loved more recipes.

Why I'm holding back one star: I haven't made or eaten anything but the basic cookie dough. After I get up enough courage to make the Brown Sugar Cookie Dough-Layer Cake, I'll come back and add th

I didn't actually get to make any of these recipes before I had to return the book to the library, but I can't wait to try adding the cookie dough to our ice cream and making the cookie dough truffles. The recipes seemed detailed and easy to follow, with tips in the sidebar for how to find rare ingredients or substitute for special equipment. Photos are plentiful and make every recipe look decadently delicious. I could have done without the breakfast section, though.

Basically, egg free cookie dough intergrated into various dessert recipes. The wire binding is perfect for a cookbook. The clear photographs, simple directions and colorful, easy to read type make this book fun to peruse. Honestly, though, I don't know if I'd actually make anything in this book, just reading it made my waist expand and my blood sugar soar. I love the books design though, definitely reader and kitchen friendly!

This book has some awesome recipes. The cookie dough recipes are egg free so they are safe to eat. Cookie dough truffles, cookie dough suffed dark chocolate cupcakes with cookie dough frosting, cookie dough ice cream, cookie dough rice krispy treats and cookie dough smores are definite recipe keepers. Every recipe includes a picture.

Found this on special via Amazon's Daily Deals. Glad I picked it up - best $2.99 I've spent in a while. Lots of recipes that fall anywhere between very easy to mildly involved, nothing too overly difficult and everything looks delicious. And I bought it just in time for Christmas baking season.

This book is a must for anyone who likes cookie dough! The recipes are amazing, you will have trouble picking which ones to do first. They are clearly marked and easy to follow recipes which picture aids for some of the recipes. This is definately one I would go to time and time again when I have friends coming over.

I have mixed feelings about this one. On the one hand, the brownies are one of the best things we have ever eaten. Seriously. They made me want to sing. On the other hand, I will never, ever make cookie dough marshmallows. The basic recipe is a good one though, and I am not sorry to have this on my bookshelf. Just know that there really are some limits to the use of cookie dough. At least imho.

Bought this for my son's girlfriend - but had to read it prior to giving it to her :) Great idea - make cookie dough without the eggs so it is safe to eat, then create recipes to use it in (not cookies, though, as it's not meant to be baked).

I love cookie dough, I love cookbooks, and I really enjoyed this cookbook. There is a wide variety of recipes (unbaked, cakes, cookies, squares, fudge, etc.). If you love cookie dough (and who doesn't?), you will enjoy this book.

After borrowing repeatedly from the library, there is now a copy sitting happily on my cook-bookshelf; purchased for me by the person most likely to benefit by its presence there.

The cookie dough truffles are worth the book alone. If you love cookie dough then you will LOVE this book. The oatmeal raisin granola bars were fantastic!!!!

I loved how this cookbook contained more that cookie recipes, that it used cookie dough to make other things. I found some recipes that will soon be making an appearance at my house.
