It makes a wonderful holiday gift to give along with the cookies!

Although the author says in the introduction that Christmas Cookies: 50 Recipes to Treasure for the Holiday Season is for new as well as experienced cooks, many of the recipes are traditional and likely to be in multiple other sources on the bookshelf of any home baker. Only few of the 50 cookies were new to me.

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.

Lisa Zwirn's book, Christmas Cookies: 50 Recipes to Treasure for the Holiday Season, is a wonderful addition to my collection of cookbooks. This attractive, beautifully photographed cookbook is filled with recipes of delicious treats your family and friends will truly enjoy.

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.

Just looking at the pictures in this book is enough to make your mouth water. Let me just tantalize you with a few of the wonderful recipes in here: Rocky Road Bites (p 126), Sacher torte Bars (p 116), Apricot Almond Bars (p 106), Chocolate Carmel Thumbprints (p 97, )Hazelnut Biscotti, Pecan Butterballs (p 70), Eggnog Cookies (p 61) and Sugar Cookies with Stained Glass (p 49).

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.

Lots of good recipes in here! Have made a few things and they have all turned out perfectly! Lots of extra information about storing cookies as well which you don't always find! Borrowed this book from the library at first but decided to buy it instead of borrowing again.

If you like to bake cookies, this is a nice cookbook. Not too long, with some different recipes that other cookbooks. Everything I have baked out of it has been gobbled down!
