Where else should I look for this cookbook?

Asked by Trillian (21106points) November 26th, 2010

I had a great recipe book. I think it was called the Great American Cookie. Had it for several years and it had the best cookie recipes, hands down. I lost it in a move. I tried to get another copy at Walden Books. They looked it up and couldn’t find it. I googled it, found a used copy and bought it online from ebay. It came and is not the book. I’ve looked and googled some more. I found some but the ones I’ve been able to look inside of show that they are not the right ones, and there are others that I cannot get inside information on.
The style was conversational during and between the recipes. I really want to have another copy of this book. I would appreciate any advice about where else to look.

@Trillian Could you possibly be looking for the All-American Cookie Book instead? If the Great American Cookie isn’t the right one you may just be misremembering the title.

Great American Cookie Cookbook Amazon is our friend.

Judging from the photo of the table of contents, this does appear to be written in a conversational style.

Thanks, both of you. I guess I should have made clear where my google search took me. was in Amazon.com. Neither of those are the right book. I specifically saw the TOC for both of those. Dangit.
I remember one chapter in particular called “When only chocolate will do”. After my Q last night, I went and registered on a book swap site.

Try the website for Moe’s. It’s a secondhand bookstore, I believe in Portland or Seattle with an amazing inventory. They will search for OP books for you.

I searched google books with the chapter title and came up with 1985 Lorraine Bodger Great American Cookies. The publisher is Arco

If @BarnacleBill has found the right book, you might be able to check with some of the folks at these sites to help you track one down.

Our second favorite friend, eBay, has this.

She also has books called “The Four-Sided Cookie” and A Year of Cookies

@Trillian Yeah for @BarnacleBill!!! He come’s through once again. I thought you’d have a hard time finding the book you wanted without the right title. But Bill got this one. Way to go my man.
