Best Christmas cookie book I've seen!

The cover on this book is so gorgeous that I had to dip into its pages right away. Here's the listing of chapters in the table of contents: Simply Divine Drop Cookies, Clever Cut-Outs , Best-Ever Bar Cookies, Old-Fashioned Cookies Treats in a Twinkle Mmm ... Chocolate. Each chapter contains many fabulous-sounding recipes. It's worth noting that the drop cookie chapter also contains many molded cookies -- the type you roll into a ball or other shape before placing on the cookie sheets. I'm mentioning this because I personally dislike making drop cookies. I will try and roll drop cookie dough into balls whenever possible. I just think they look neater, prettier and more uniform. A cookie scoop does help some with making drop cookies, but I tend to avoid them. So if you are that way too, don't skip over the drop cookie chapter. It contains plenty of recipes you will want to use. I must also say that, just like Grandma's kitchen, this book contains many sweet surprises. There are bonus recipes in each chapter for snacks, candies and beverages as well as cookies! In addition, this cookbook contains dozens of helpful hints and tips for baking, packaging, and gifting cookies and it shares many sweet and simple craft and decorating ideas. I was so pleased with this book. If I could own only one cookie cookbook, I think I would pick this one. There is great variety among the recipes and many of them are quite different and unusual. A great resource for Christmas baking!

Truly Wonderful

This is a fantastic cookbook. I am always on the lookout for cookie recipes. Between four young children, a cookie and candy bake sale and two different cookie exchanges each year, cookies are ALWAYS in hot demand at my house. Thanks once again Gooseberry Patch for putting together another fabulous book! You ROCK!

Great Cookie Recipes

I could not wait to get my copy of Christmas Cookie Jar..........I felt totally honored to be selected for a cookie recipe which is on page 42 of this volume. I must add that there are so many recipes in this volume that I need to start now to get all my favorites made before the holiday....You will enjoy these recipes from cover to cover and speaking of the cover, I might add that the cover photo is very inviting to all of you to make this volume a part of your Christmas baking and every day thereafter! Thanks Gooseberry!

WOW! So many new and exciting cookies in this one!! I was making the same old, same old cookies for the holidays every year - but not this year! I started making cookies the week the cookbook arrived, because I couldn't wait until Christmas! The table of contents is perfectly laid out for whatever kind of cookie you are looking to make - from the simple bar cookie - to a spectacular new one! Thanks Gooseberry Patch for such a diverse and complete collection!

Wonderful Cookies

I love this book for making Christmas Cookies, but use this all year long. My husband loves cookies and so do my grand children, so I use this book all year long.

Another great cookie book

I loved your first cookie book and I also love this one. I love the stories and memories that go along with the recipes. Those short little stories make you want to create more of your own memories. All of your books are fun, interesting and inspirational. I can totally relax when reading them. What a great form of therapy. Keep up the good work.

I love this book. I think it is my favorite among the Christmas series and I have them all. I love the recipes and stories behind each one. I teach Home Economics and I cannot wait for my test kitchens to use some of these recipes.

Christmas Cookie Jar

I am very excited with this book. I make cookies, as gifts for Christmas for about 30 people. There are some wonderful recipes I can't wait to try. Each page is a wonderful adventure. I'm sure some of these will become family favorites! Thank you so much for providing such wonderful, homey, comfy products. When your catalog arrives, I put it aside, until I can sit down, after the fray of the day, have a cup of tea, and browse your pages. It is a delight.
