Editorial Reviews

Booklist
"Demonstrates that a cook can prepare personalized combinations of ingredients at home and thus enjoy the mixes' advantages without their drawbacks."
Library Journal
Parks's "Mason jar cookies" are cookies whose dry ingredients are layered in a 1-quart canning jar, ready to give-along with the recipe-as a gift to friends and others. She includes 50 recipes for easy cookies and bars, each one set up as a two-page spread: the complete recipe is given on the left page, and the facing page provides instructions on "creating the jar"-a diagram of the specific way the ingredients should be layered in the jar, along with a box (that can be photocopied) providing a list of the eggs, butter, etc., needed in addition to the dry ingredients and a concise version of the recipe. Many of the recipes are familiar, but both home bakers and "crafters," as Parks calls them, will find her book of interest; for larger baking collections.
