In her debut cookbook, Margaret shares practical tips, techniques, and more than eighty recipes collected over her sixty years of baking, tasting, eating, and selling. A Cookie Bakes in Brooklyn tells the story of her entire professional culinary career (even before she knew what a career was). Some of these recipes are her take on old favorites; some have been created to please the current taste in sweets. Sample some sweet treats from Margaret’s recipe index:
