"It is absolutely safe to declare Sarah Kieffer the Queen of Cookies, and once you bake from this over-the-top collection of cookie perfection, you will see why the crown is hers to wear! My favorite chapter has to be Pan-Banging Cookies, because why stop with chocolate chip? Now there is a flavor for any time the mood strikes to bang that pan. This is a 'buy at least two copies' kind of book-keep one, give one. The world needs this!" -Brian Hart Hoffman, editor-in-chief, Bake from Scratch
"Sarah's pan-banging cookies are the gold standard of chocolate chip cookies. Yet she's managed to set the bar even higher with her new book, 100 Cookies. Sarah bakes with all the passion and soul of a poet, so it is no wonder her recipes have captured the hearts of bakers all over the world. Her gorgeous photography makes it impossible to flip through the book without wanting to bake every single recipe.

Sarah is nothing short of a cookie goddess! You need this book and a large glass of milk."-Zoë François, pastry chef and coauthor of the bestselling Artisan Bread in Five Minutes a Day series
