365 recipes for cookies that celebrate historic and pop-culture events every day of the year, with anecdotes, trivia, and full-color photos of each cookie.
The Daily Cookie: 365 Tempting Treats for the Sweetest Year of Your Life is a veritable cookiepedia served up with lighthearted historical and celebratory anecdotes, quotes, and trivia designed to inspire the baker in you 365 days a year.
With The Daily Cookie, there's no need to wait for an occasion to bake a batch of cookies. Every day is cause to celebrate, whether it's Elvis's birthday (Peanut Browned Butter Banana-Bacon Cookies), Day of the Ninja (Chocolate "Ninjabread" Cookies), or Squirrel Appreciation Day (Caramel Nut Bars).
While the occasions are sometimes a little offbeat, the recipes are seriously good, with tried-and-true instructions and tips for getting the best results. Best of all, each of the 365 recipes features a full-color photograph of the finished cookie.
Whether you like chewy, crispy, chunky, bars, brownies, supereasy (some even no-bake), sweet, salty, savory, or even vegan and gluten-free options, there's something for everyone every day in The Daily Cookie.
