    Loved all of them!

    If you are a cookie lover (like I am) then you’ll love The Big Book of Cookies! It has a huge collection of cookies, with more than 180 recipes, each with a photo, too. The recipes include both made from scratch or using a mix from the line of Betty Crocker mixes, so you can choose whichever appeals more to you. I’ve already tried the Chocolate and Orange Pecan shortbread, which in the book the photo shows them cut out into a pretty scalloped shape, while we rolled them into balls and added a powdered sugar coating. My kids loved the “snowballs” and I loved that they had three of my favorite flavors in one cookie. Another recipe that I tested so far is the Cinnamon Fig Bars with Orange Buttercream Frosting, as I had a large amount of dried figs that I wanted to make something with. I loved how they turned out with the citrusy icing and the fruit filling, I’m sure I will make them again. There’s also a good amount of decorated cookies for holidays, like the adorable Ginger Elves or the Glowing Spiced Pumpkins, which have a stained glass look made from melted hard candies. There was also some nice suggestions for packaging cookies that I’m going to try out when we give cookies to our neighbors this holiday season. I like the idea of using CD envelopes to package one large cookie, my co-workers would love that. If your family is gluten free, The Big Book of Cookies includes recipes that will meet your needs, while still allowing for some yummy treats. Also, keep your eye out for the sweet success tips that offer ideas for alternative ingredients, handling suggestions and more.

    There are alot of recipes that I would like to try and I like that there are pictures.   However the customer service at Barnes and Noble stinks as this was to be a Christmas gift and it did not arrive when it was supposed to.  Contacted customer service and was told that i was confused on the shipping method.
