You will find nothing new in this cookbook, it is a compilation of Christmas Favorites with stories behind each receipe. I am giving this an overall 5 stars since the tips for perfect outcomes on each receipe is going to be very helpful for the beginning or less experienced cook/baker. The illustrations are beautiful and Rose has a story for each receipe explaining why it is her favorite. The one thing I find most helpful for bakers of all levels are the different processes for making each receipe, Rose tells you how to make the receipe by hand, mixer and food processor so no matter what your favorite method of mixing you will find clear and concise instructions.

Beranbaum's table format for ingredients is helpful in giving weights as well as volume measures. However, the ingredients are not listed in the order used, which is confusing and annoying. The color photos of each cookie do not always face the recipes. Often the color photo is on the righthand page, facing the tail-end of the previous recipe. When you want to refer to the photo while making the cookie, this layout is inconvenient. I suppose they were trying to save having extra blank pages, but it disrupts the flow of the book. As an experienced baker of traditional Christmas cookies, I also noted a couple errors in the author's background notes. The name lebkuchen does not derive from the German word lieb (love), as she states. It comes from a Latin word leb, an offering. Like Springerle, these cookies were baked as an offering to the teutonic gods.

    A must have book if you bake

    This is my second copy of this book - the first having fallen apart from so much usage. The Golden Biscotti and Cocoa Brownie recipes alone make this worth owning. And there is so much more.

    Great for beginner and advanced bakers!

    I have tried so many cookie recipes and I have found this book to be absolutely fantastic. Every recipe turns out perfect every time especially for a once a year baker ! In no way would I consider myself an advanced baker yet some of the recipes can certainly be considered for the more advanced baker. Easy to read and understand and with a picture of each cookie makes this book #1 with me ! Highly recommended for anyone as a gift or to just have for the 'library'. I gave this to my Mother and she calls this her Christmas Cookie Bible ! Super great and you cant go wrong with this one !

    "Must Have" if you enjoy baking cookies

    Love, love, love this book! It's my 5th purchase...one for myself and 4 others as gifts for my sisters and daughters! Easy to understand directions with many beautiful pictures. The ingredient chart includes measurements along with weights. One feature that I really like is that it gives you instructions to make the cookies using the food processor method, and electric mixer method. It also let's you know what equipment you will need to make the cookies. Each recipe also includes helpful "tips". And at the end of the book there is an equivalent and substitution chart, a dictionary of ingredients (with pictures) and an explanation of equipment and their uses. If you're a "seasoned baker" or a "novice", this book is one that you should consider purchasing. Rose Levy Beranbaum is an excellent author!
