    Incredibly creative book!

    Julia Usher's food styling is truly impressive - both creative and detailed. She takes the traditional concept of a Christmas cookie swap and expands upon it, illustrating the endless opportunities for using cookies to celebrate any occasion throughout the year. I imagine my attempts to duplicate her work will probably fall short of the fabulous photos in this book; however, with the clear and easy to follow instructions provided, I think I may have a shot at success. (And even if I fail, what fun I will have!)

    Overall, "Cookie Swap" is an absolutely beautiful book, full of inspiring recipes and gorgeous photos. This book not only belongs in your kitchen, but on your coffee table as well. This book would make a great gift for any of the "foodies" you may know.
