Small Batch Cookies  There are times when nothing but a warm chocolate chip cookie will hit the spot. Bad day at work? Chocolate chip cookie. A great day at work? Chocolate chip cookie. The need for an emergency solitary cookie or two can strike at any time, but baking recipes typically serve large groups, which is perfect for a party, a celebration or a crowd, but not when there's just one (or two) of you and you would rather not spend the money on making a big batch or be faced with eating the same thing all week.

In Small Batch Cookies, Edd showed that good things really can come in small packages. For this new book he wants to focus on cookies, probably the easiest - and arguably most popular - kind of baking there is. Nothing has quite the allure of a cookie straight out of the oven! The classic cookie is chocolate chip, but there is no one single perfect version - the variations are endless and range from double and triple chocolate to dark chocolate and cherry, and white chocolate and lemon. Other less familiar but no less delicious types of cookie include vanilla, peanut butter, ginger, oat and raisin and coconut. The recipes also include vegan cookies and cookies for those with allergies and intolerances.
