Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Author of Christmas for Dummies, among other titles, Wilson here uses the device of a field guide to present 75 Christmas cookie recipes, from Aloha Bars to Linzer Tarts to Victoria Currant Cookies. Each recipe includes "habitat" (i.e., country of origin), "field notes" (e.g., cook's tips), "lifespan" (storage information), and a color photograph. Various icons indicate which ones are especially quick, good for making with kids, sturdy enough to mail, and the like. Although the conceit seems a bit contrived, home bakers are always looking for new cookie recipes around the holidays. For most baking collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.

    Measurements render well on the Android app, which means they probably render well on the Nook color line. The book does not render properly on the Nook Simple Touch.   Content: recipes read well, and there are a large selection of cookies to try.
