The Cookie That Changed My Life
Rumour has it that Nancy Silverton made Julia Child cry. No foul play was involved - it was her perfect creme fraiche brioche that opened Ms. Child's floodgates. If someone could make Julia Child cry from delight, it's safe to say that every recipe found in this eagerly anticipated baking bible from America's most respected authority; 100+ recipes for cookies, cakes, breads, breakfast pastries, and much more, might very well be the best things you've ever baked.
From Lattice-Topped Apple Pie to Carrot Cake with Brown Butter Cream Cheese Frosting (the secret? Carrot puree) to Cornbread (is it too much to ask that it actually taste like corn?), she shares recipes for the platonic ideals of our most beloved baked goods.
Alongside the classics—Lemon Bars, Key Lime Pie, Layered Buttermilk Biscuits—Silverton includes a handful of her own inventions: Double-Decker Chocolate Cookies (double the fun!), Iced Raisin Bars (a better fig newton), and Chocolate Brandy Cake (chocolate and brandy!)—all sure to become future classics. With more than a hundred perfected recipes, The Cookie That Changed My Life is a veritable encyclopedia of the very best things to bake.
