Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
11/15/2013
Growing up in Central Europe, home baker Maksai developed a passion for baking that she now shares through YouTube videos (youtube.com/BakingLoveKrisztina) and other outlets. Here, she's revised and repackaged recipes from her out-of-print Baking Love with Krisztina: European Cookies the Easy Way into an attractive compendium organized from easy (orange medallions) to challenging (chessboard cookies). Recipes include U.S. and metric measurements and detailed step-by-step photographs, but a few omit important details regarding equipment and ingredients. VERDICT Maksai's cookies, most butter and nut based and prepared with an electric hand mixer, are little works of art. This title will add variety to most cookie collections.
