"Kelly Cooper's Cookies for Grown-ups is bold and quirky, savory yes, but sweet, too, and full of surprises. Her creations pair with cocktails and wine; one sandwiches a chocolate habanero after-kick between orange-vanilla layers, another links pear and blue cheese." Insatiable Critic.com

"… I was at Williams-Sonoma in Summerlin where I met college teacher and cookbook author Kelly Cooper, whose Cookies for Grown-Ups (Red Rock Press, $24) has a number of killer recipes for sweet and savory cookies. Her Refrescante (cornmeal, Parmesan cheese, cream cheese and jalapeño peppers) is one of the world’s great cocktail snacks." Las Vegas Seven
"Kelly Cooper isn't the first baker to come up with savory cookies but she might do it best, for example, in kebab cookies or in one that combines the flavors of pesto. Her sweet cookies also dazzle taste buds with unexpected flavors: chili in a chocolate-hazelnut confection or pumpkin seeds in a spice cookie. The proof is the baking, and the eating."

"Baking cookies isn't known as the manliest thing to do in the kitchen but with the flavor combinations that Kelly Cooper has put together, Sundays at my house are now all about football, beer and ...grown-up cookies!" FoodieAdventures.com
