American Cookie : The Snaps, Drops, Jumbles, Tea Cakes, Bars & Brownies That We Have Loved for Generations: A Baking Book
by Anne Byrn




Overview -
A delicious tour of America's favorite treats, cookies, and candies from the beloved author of the bestselling Cake Mix Doctor series and American Cake

IACP AWARD FINALIST - "Every recipe comes with a story as delicious as the small bite it describes. And best of all, every small bite begs to be baked."--Dorie Greenspan, James Beard Award-winning author of Dorie's Cookies

Each of America's little bites--cookies, candies, wafers, brittles--tells a big story, and each speaks volumes about what was going on in America when the recipes were created. In American Cookie, the New York Times bestselling author and Cake Mix Doctor Anne Byrn takes us on a journey through America's baking history. And just like she did in American Cake, she provides an incredibly detailed historical background alongside each recipe. Because the little bites we love are more than just baked goods--they're representations of different times in our history.

Early colonists brought sugar cookies, Italian fig cookies, African benne wafers, and German gingerbread cookies. Each of the 100 recipes, from Katharine Hepburn Brownies and Democratic Tea Cakes to saltwater taffy and peanut brittle, comes with a lesson that's both informative and enchanting.
