The popular all-in-one baking book is now in full color! 

Now you can find it all at your fingertips—450+ definitive recipes for all your favorite cookies, cakes, pies, tarts, breads, pizza, and more, along with kitchen-tested techniques that will transform your baking. Recipes range from easy (drop cookies and no-knead bread) to more ambitious (authentic croissants and dacquoise) and our trademark expertise shines through each one. Discover why spreading the dough and then sprinkling the berries leads to better Blueberry Scones, why cubed versus shredded extra-sharp cheddar cheese makes all the difference in our irresistible Cheese Bread, how we found three ways to squeeze more lemon flavor into our Lemon Bundt Cake, and how to keep the best Buttermilk Waffles your family will ever taste warm and crispy. 

An illustrated Baking Basics chapter at the front of the book provides information on key ingredients and equipment and lays the groundwork for a lifetime of baking success. A shopping guide at the back recommends favorite go-to brands. These recipes represent all the wisdom of the bakers that came before us as well as all we’ve learned through literally thousands of trial-and-error sessions in our kitchens.

With a Cook’s Illustrated recipe, there is nothing you can’t bake well

Creating the best recipe is all about the journey. Baking truly is an art and a science, which makes a test kitchen full of four dozen creative and obsessive cooks with considerable time and resources exactly the right place to create the definitive collection of the best baking recipes.

The Cook’s Illustrated Baking Book is just that: 450+ foolproof recipes that you’ll come to treasure in a hardcover book guaranteed to wind up dusted with flour in your kitchen (that’s good!).

The very best baking recipes from 20 years of work in our test kitchen, including:

Blueberry Scones

Folding the dough and then sprinkling the berries leads to more balanced berry distribution and better-tasting scones.

Rustic Italian Bread

As with most rustic breads, we’ve found a sponge (a mix of flour, water, and yeast that is allowed to ferment) to be invaluable in giving the bread a deep, complex flavor.

Ultimate Turtle Brownies

Our foolproof, rich and chewy caramel topping makes these brownies transcendent.

Peach Shortcakes

Our recipe works well with any peaches, regardless of their quality, making them a worthy treat all year long.
