Gourmet Cookie Book

Yesterday Ian and I were watching CBS Sunday Morning (yep, we watch Sunday Morning and 60 Minutes every week – we’re quite the old married couple), and we saw this story on Gourmet Magazine’s new Cookie Book.  The editors of Gourmet have gone through their archives and selected one cookie recipe per year from 1941-2009.  Of course, the book is great for bakers looking to expand their repertoire, but it also offers an interesting look at social history, as it features “headnotes describing their cultural context, the recipes present a fascinating bite-by-bite history of how our appetites evolved.”

The Gourmet Cookie Book would be a great last-minute gift idea for the baker or cookie historian in your life…
