This book would be a good choice for a new baker as it covers what I consider to be the most popular Christmas cookies (sugar cookies, gingerbread men, peanut butter cookies with Hershey kisses, linzer cookies, and rum balls to name a few). A new baker would be the most likely to benefit from the chapters on the Basics of Cookie Making, Key Ingredients for the Cookie Baker and Key Tools for the Cookie Baker which contain good basic tips that an experienced baker probably already knows.
I have listed the cookie recipes below so you can determine whether they would be new to you or not. Each chapter includes tips for making that type of cookie.Read more ›
My family adores chocloate desserts of almost any kind, but I ventured out of the norm and tried the author's heavenly Lemon Squares. They were absoultley wonderful, full of intense flavor with a moist, tasty crust. The Coconut Macaroons, dipped in Chocolate is another delightful sweet. They were moist, chewy and very simple to create. A co-worker borrowed my cookbook and chose to make the Apricot Almond Bars. She brought these fruity, chewy almond bars into the office for everyone to enjoy and we devoured them in a day.
I've given this gem of a cookbook to several friends and family members last holiday season and I received wonderful feedback.
For the upcoming holiday season I look forward to trying numerous new recipes from Lisa Zwirn's superb cookbook. I highly recommend this appealing, well-written holiday treasure.

In these tough economic times, I really appreciate a book like this. What could be nicer and more Christmasy than giving everyone a plate of your own homemade Christmas cookies?
The recipes are great! You will really like this one.
