While it does store recipes and ingredients properly, Cookie for Mac's poorly-designed interface makes it difficult to use. In addition to its clumsy controls, the lack of a user manual means much trial and error is required to discover all its features.

After downloading, Cookie for Mac starts up without any installation. However, even though really basic, the user interface is not too intuitive and it takes time getting used to. The main menu consists of only two buttons: a large plus button labeled "Add Object" and a "Print" button. The left sidebar contains two categories, one for recipes and the other for ingredients. Pressing the plus button creates a new recipe category, which can be relabeled by clicking on the icon that looks like a magnifying glass and then on an edit button. A small main window displays the contents of the category. New items, such as recipes, can be added by entering a category and then clicking on the plus button. Here, ingredients, their amounts, and instructions can be added with plus and minus buttons. The recipes can be searched for easily with the click of a button next to the categories.

Cookie for Mac stores recipes in predefined categories without much problem and would serve its purpose fairly well for users looking for a basic recipe sorting and storing application. However, its rather inconvenient interface prevents us from fully recommending this application.
