Sip luscious libations and satisfy your sweet tooth with these 50 amazing recipe pairings featuring creamy cocktails and delicious desserts—written by a seasoned food writer. Milk and cookies are a classic. There’s no better culinary combination than a sweet, crumbly, and warm cookie colliding with a rich, cool, creamy liquid…the extraordinary contrast of temperature, texture, and flavor wow and delight our senses. It’s no wonder that people have been dunking and drinking for decades. But somehow, this magical combination became associated with childhood—a pairing reserved for after-school snacks or Christmas Eve treats for Santa. But, no more! A new era has begun. Retro cocktails are more popular than ever (hello, Harvey Wallbanger?) and like mad scientists, bartenders everywhere are crafting cocktails that tap into milk-and-cookie nostalgia too. If you’ve ever thought a Girl Scout cookie would taste great with a boozy beverage or wished you could order Cereal Milk Punch at your local watering hole, then this book is for you. Cookies & Cocktails features dreamy drink recipes paired with delicious cookies, biscuits, wafers, and bars. Whether you crave a cutting-edge craft cocktail or a soul-warming nightcap to end a cozy wintry evening you’ll find a sensory surprise on every level. Cheers!

James Beard Award-winner for Best Baking and Dessert Book 2017 All-new collection from a "revered icon" and "culinary guru" (New York Times). Over the course of her baking career, Dorie Greenspan has created more than 300 cookie recipes. Yet she has never written a book about them—until now. To merit her “three purple stars of approval,” every cookie had to be so special that it begged to be made again and again. Cookies for every taste and occasion are here. There are company treats like Portofignos, with chocolate dough and port-soaked figs, and lunch-box Blueberry Buttermilk Pie Bars. They Might Be Breakfast Cookies are packed with goodies—raisins, dried apples, dried cranberries, and oats— while Almond Crackle Cookies have just three ingredients. There are dozens of choices for the Christmas cookie swaps, including Little Rascals (German jam sandwich cookies with walnuts), Italian Saucissons (chocolate log cookies studded with dried fruit), and Snowy-Topped Brownie Drops. And who but America’s favorite baker could devise a cookie as intriguing as Pink-Peppercorn Thumbprints or as popular as the World Peace Cookie, with its 59 million Internet fans?

This author reassesses the lives of the anti-establishment, countercultural 1960s generation beginning with the back-to-the-land communes of the late 1960s to the present, as this generation relocated to more urban settings. It examines how much idealism "baby boomers" retained as they were pulled into mainstream life.
