The Gourmet Cookie Book by Gourmet Magazine

This book contains many generations of cookie recipes, from all different parts of the world.  Recipes that were designated, by Gourmet Magazine, as the single best cookie recipe for each year, between 1941-2009.

I think that it is very charming that the recipes are reprinted in this book, in the same format as they were first published in the magazine, so the reader also gets a sense of the culture during those decades. In addition to the recipes, there is a brief introduction and history of that cookie, which all cookie fans will enjoy reading.

For me, an important component to this cookie book is the section entitled Recipe Tips.  It provides standard definitions and directions, to ensure satisfaction.
