Book Rate: ★★★☆☆ (3/5)
As soon as I saw Cookie Classic Made Easy was available as an ARC I had this idea for a different kind of review. Since I didn’t feel good review this book only based on the format and writing style of the book, I decided to cook (yes, cook, like in the kitchen, like risking my life if I made a big mess and my mum found out!!) in order to be able to review its content as well.
(This is the time when you face slap yourself and whisper “Why Rebeca? Whyyy?”.) But it actually went quite well!
So if you want to see a bit of my cooking experience just click play on the following video:
Overall, I thought Cookie Classics Made Easy has an amazing presentation, very clean and appealing, the receipts are very well structured, easy to read and organized. The cooking itself didn’t require a lot of equipment or kitchen experience, but the result wasn’t as good as I expected it to be. The cookies were eatable but not even near delicious. I do believe this could be not the book’s fault but my own, I’m not that good of a cook… But really I’ll just leave it to you to decide and try if you think you can do better than I did anyway! Let me know if you did 😉
