Mindy Segal: the Cookie Goddess

Auto-labeled “A Cookie Nerd” we’re dedicating this week’ Baker spot to one of our most admired American Pastry Chefs ever: Mindy Segal

If you’re in-love with cookies, if you want to upgrade your game in cookie-matters, if you simply want to bake better cookies and get into the simple yet fancy techniques behind them: this is the baker you want to know of

To be more direct, her famous and hot-selling book Cookie Love, is probably something you’ll adore. . .and we’ve seen many times that it makes a perfect gift for any inspired home-baker as well
