Filled with more unique and creative treats than her previous cookie cookbook.

If Martha tells you to do something, even if it seems kind of fussy (hello, parchment lining) it! Thank you Random House for the free book.

All the recipes have nice pictures and clear instructions—I like them all.
This book is a companion to a cooking series on Public Television where Martha Stewart bakes the cookies in this book.

3.5 stars

They are all gorgeous. And all are an absolute certain bet for taste because this is Martha, y'all. However, they are often finicky and time-consuming.

There are pictures for each recipe.

Favourites: (Which is a lot because the book is about the perfect cookies)

Sparkly Lemon Cookies
Chocolate Mint Wafers - great for Christmas
Pumpkin Snickerdoodles
Molasses-Ginger Crisps
Streusel Jammies
Pink Lemonade Thumbprints - these are especially nice for baby or wedding showers, brunches, etc.
I am not sure if my book didn't download properly, but it was a mess! Very few pics, several dozen blank pages and page numbers reversed and tripled! Who knows if I liked any recipes, I need pics to tempt me, was very disappointed, since from library could not attempt to reload... Since the power outages both my husband and I have been having overdrive issues with the app, slow and limited cell service is wrecking havoc everywhere in northern ca...

Just ok

I have no problem counting cookbooks on my reading list because I read all of the stories, background info, and recipes I was reluctant to count this one though because there isn’t a lot to it. I was kind of disappointed by that. I would expect a lot of context and information from the Martha Stewart staff.

The recipes are interesting and look good, but nothing spectacular.

I really like this cookbook. There’s a picture for each recipe, which I definitely appreciate. I’ve already earmarked a bunch of recipes I want to try. The recipes themselves are fairly short, easy to understand, and ingredients are mostly ones I have on hand. Some recipes feature tips as to why you should do the special instructions (which is good, otherwise I’d be tempted to skip them).

Very intensive cookie making. For this book perfection Is right. Almost all of these recipes require the baker to really know what they are doing. The instructions are vast, and the pictures are not as many as I would like. I would buy this book, but it would take a while to have the desire for a first attempt on anything.

Haven't made any of these recipes yet, but I am itching to start creaming the butter and sugar. I like the layout of this book, I love the photography and though I often think her recipes are a bit pedantic, I have always like anything of hers that I have tried.

The pictures in this book were good enough to eat! As usual, Martha gives recipes a creative finish while still retaining simplicity!
