Turn your cookie ideas upside down. Segal, chef-owner of Chicago’s Hot Chocolate Restaurant and Dessert Bar, is willing to rethink almost any kind of cookie, and her first book demonstrates just how wonderfully she can do it. This is a book for the cookie obsessed—bakers who have a playful spirit and a willingness to go beyond the familiar with delicacies such smoked chocolate sables, ginger sorghum cookies, and graham cracker and passion fruit whoopie pies. Segal’s infectious enthusiasm for good baking will have you rolling up your sleeves in no time.
