Cookies are easy, enticing, and fun. Yet as the
award-winning baker Alice Medrich notes, too often, home

writes in her introduction to this landmark cookie cookbook,
organized by texture, from crunchy to airy to chunky. An
inveterate tester and master manipulator of ingredients, she

this master conjurer of sweets will bring bliss to every
