From 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.
