Overview

From spicy Gingerbread to simple and elegant Biscotti, The Christmas Cookie Book offers up a mouthwatering collection of forty traditional and contemporary cookie recipes. Classics like Sugar Cookies and Spritz make an appearance alongside more modern takes on long-cherished recipes such as French Lemon Wafers and Mahogany-Iced Brown Bears. Baking expert Lou Pappas shares the enchanting history of Christmas cookies and demonstrates which are best for shipping, which are fun to bake with kids, and which make the most elegant cookie-tray displays. With tempting photographs throughout, this book is a joyous celebration of baking, giving, and most importantly, enjoying everyone's favorite Christmastime treat.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Prolific food writer Pappas is the author of more than 30 other cookbooks. Her latest includes recipes for Christmas cookies organized by category, from "Timeless Traditional Cookies" to "Elegant Party Cookies." The recipes are fine, but there are only 40 of them, and many of them are familiar. Most libraries with more extensive cookie books, such as Nancy Baggett's recent All-American Cookie Book (LJ 8/01) and Nick Malgieri's Cookies Unlimited (LJ 8/00), can skip this; only for comprehensive baking collections.
