Everyone has a different idea of what makes a chocolate chip cookie truly perfect, but with 101 recipes, you are sure to find a favorite, or two, or three!

The 101 chocolate chip cookie recipes in this book were selected from the contestants that entered the Orchards Inn national chocolate chip cookie contest in 1987. From this collection you can find, or create, your favorite chocolate chip cookie.

This paper back book has two parts. The first part tells the history of chocolate and of the chocolate chip cookie. It also has some basic information about baking chocolate chip cookies Then the rest of the book contains a categorized listing of the recipes. Included in the recipes is the original Nestle Toll House recipe – the first chocolate chip cookie.

The book has two color print and an occasional generic cookie photo (none are from any of the actual recipes).The recipes are presented one per page making it easy to read and convenient to lay the book open and bake.

This book can be a great resource for a baker of any skill level. I recommend adding it to your kitchen library collection. Or giving the book as a gift, along with an empty container. hint 🙂
