|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,
, Best-Ever Bar 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!
