Betty Crocker Cookies Cookbook
Hello cookie lovers, your life is about to get a whole lot sweeter—and just in time for the holidays.

If you called us cookie crazy, you wouldn’t be wrong. Baking experts at the Betty Crocker Kitchens have been developing, testing and perfecting cookie recipes pretty much non-stop since they were established in 1946. That’s nearly 75 years! (And we’re guessing at least a metric ton of chocolate chips and butter!) We tapped into that deep well of knowledge and our enthusiasm for today’s baking trends to create our newest cookbook. We can’t wait to share it with you! Introducing, Betty Crocker Cookies: Irresistibly Easy Recipes for Any Occasion.

Just shy of 180 cookie and bar recipes, including those you can’t find anywhere else, it has a sweet treat for every occasion, big and small. Need a batch of Christmas cookies to take to the neighbors? Try the Cherry-Chocolate Buffalo Plaid Cookies. Want to pack an extra treat into someone’s lunchbox? Zebra Cookies were made to travel. We even have a cookie for when it’s too hot to turn on the oven: Chocolate Coconut Cookie Tots.

In true Betty Crocker style, the book doesn’t stop at just the recipes. We’ve loaded the pages with our best tips and tricks for turning out perfect cookies. There’s a cheat sheet for scooping cookies quickly that you might be tempted to tear out and tape to your cupboard, storage advice for every single recipe, and our favorite element, Why It Works and Kitchen Secret tips that came straight from the recipe developers while they developed, tested and tasted each recipe, over and over until it was flawless. It’s the next best thing to having Betty next to you while you bake.

Let’s talk features. Turns out we have even more to say about cookies than recipes and tips, so we created six special features to share a fun look back at our cookie history starting with our ever-popular Cooky Book published in 1963 (wherein we explain the kooky spelling of cooky) plus hacks for cookie cutters, how to host a no-stress cookie exchange and a guide to baking with kids.
