The Cookie Book book cover


It’s finally here!! More than 75 brand-new recipes include easy-to-follow instructions, helpful tips and heaps of photos (by me!) for each jazzy creation. The Cookie Book includes a wide-range of cookies to fit every type of craving. You’ll satisfy a simple mid-week chocolate chip cookie craving by perusing the Hella Chocolate Chip Cookie Chapter (think Big Ass Olive Oil Cookies and Everything Chocolate Chip Cookies). When you’re looking to dive a little deeper into butter and sugar you can dabble in Dazzling Drop Cookies (Oatmeal, Blueberry + Puffed Quinoa Breakfast Cookies and Banana Bread Chocolate Chunk Cookies) or jump into the Jazz Hands Chapter and dazzle with Cold Brew Cookies With White Chocolate + Espresso Beans and Burnt Sugar Bark Ginger Cookies. The Ultimate Holiday Cookie Exchange chapter is loaded with your new winter favorites, from 24K Gold Hazelnut Bars, Peppermint Candy Macarons, Eggnog Snickerdoodles, White Chocolate Fudge Brownies with Pistachios + Cranberries and Mexican Hot Chocolate S’more Cookies–making The Cookie Book the ultimate holiday gift.

The Cookie Book by Rebecca Firth

“It continually amazes me that Rebecca’s cookie magic just can’t be stopped. She has mastered the euphoric balance of crispy meets chewy along with dynamic flavor profiles that keep me turning to her time and time again for cookies that always deliver amazing results! Each recipe becomes a new favorite, and her candid dialogue in each recipe brings her in the kitchen to guide the baking process. Walk in my kitchen and this book will be prominently displayed (and frequently used).”
Brian Hart Hoffman, Editor-in-chief Bake From Scratch magazine

“Writer, photographer and queen of cookies, Rebecca Firth teases my sweet tooth and I am not mad about it. Love following her and her tempting creations and can’t wait to see what she comes up with next.”
Tiffani Thiessen, actress and author of Pull Up a Chair

“I’m a big fan of Rebecca’s intriguing flavor combinations, approachable recipes, and most of all, her magical spin on familiar recipes.”
Cenk Sönmezsoy, author of The Artful Baker

“If it’s not Rebecca’s stunning photography or honest voice that reel you in, it’s her downright delicious recipes. Consider me a lifelong fan!”
Sally McKenney, author of Sally’s Baking Addiction

“If I need a go-to cookie recipe one of the first people I turn to is Rebecca. She’s always improving on the classic, without straying too far from what people know and love. Her recipes are easy to follow, consistent and most of all delicious.  If you love to bake, this cookie book is a must-have addition to your cookbook library!”
Julie Resnick, Co-Founder The Feedfeed

Any more questions that haven’t been answer here (about the book or tour or signed copies, etc.), just drop a note to [email protected]  and we’ll make sure you get pointed in the right direction.

How much do you love cookies?

I mean, DUH! They’re one of my most favorite things to make. EVER.

Are there weight measurements in the book?

Hell yes!

Can I see a recipe?

YES–coming soon! Sign up for my newsletter (link at the top of my blog!) and you’ll be the first to know when I do.

***UPDATED!!! I recently shared the recipe for Everything Chocolate Chip Cookies from The Cookie Book — make ’em!!!***

Who took the photos?

Yours truly.

Whose hands are in the book and all of your photos?

My kids, Stella and Gavin! They were nice enough to get up in the wee morning hours to pose. I love photos with their hands.

What's your favorite recipe in the book?

Can’t do it…can’t pick just one. But I would like to swim in that lemon-basil curd in the photo below…

More Details…

  • There are seven chapters total: Hella Chocolate Chip Cookies, Cozy Classics, Jazz Hands (for when you really want to impress), Dazzling Drop Cookies, Ultimate Holiday Cookie Exchange (my favorite time of year to bake), Get Stuffed (heaps of sammie cookies) and Heavenly Bar Cookies.
  • Every recipe was tested extensively by myself as well as at least one other baker (I talk about my testers in the book!).
  • There is heaps of brown butter and chocolate throughout. Of course.
  • There is a healthy balance of cookies to satisfy a craving right this minute (as we need to do), as well as cookies for when you’re in the mood to spend a wee more time in the kitchen.
  • Every recipe has a full-page color photo to go along with it.
  • All of the recipes are brand new save for a couple of blog favorites that I updated a bit for the book.

Email if you have a question you want answered!
