Dorie Greenspan signs “Dorie’s Cookies” Saturday, 11/12 and Sunday, 11/13


When the Betty Crocker Cooky Book is no longer enough for you, you’re ready for Dorie Greenspan’s new compendium of cookies, Dorie’s Cookies.

We love Betty because she’s predictable; it’s what made the Cooky Book a generational staple. But you love Dorie Greenspan because she’ll surprise you, and that’s why her new cookbook, Dorie’s Cookies is a must-have for everyone who loves cookies – or loves someone who loves cookies.

No one ever outgrows the need for a snickerdoodle, but who could fail to be tempted by Dorie’s “Pink Peppercorn Thumbprints,” “Cocoa-Tahini Cookies with Sesame Crunch,” or Moroccan Semolina and Almond cookies,” 10 riffs on brownies, the “Beurre and Sel collection” of recipes from Greenspan’s East Harlem cookie boutique, buckwheat based cookies, waffle cookies, bars, meringues, and an entire chapter of cocktail cookies.

Clocking in at 170 recipes, Dorie’s Cookies is more than a cookbook; it’s a treasury.

The hallmark of Greenspan’s recipes is that they’re familiar enough to keep your feet under you as you try something new, but sufficiently novel to delight you. If anything looks dicey, Dorie gets there first with coaching tips to help you get it right. You’ll be nailing these wonderful cookies and knocking people’s socks off right and left this holiday season.

Fair warning: Santa will be in line at all of the San Francisco Bay Area events, getting copies of Dorie’s Cookies inscribed for the very best girls and boys – he knows a terrific gift when he sees one. Join the Fat Man and have Dorie inscribe a book especially for your friends, too.
