I ordered this book thinking it would be a sweet Christmas story of friends. I was disappointed with the foul language and immorality. I was glancing through it and did not even read it. Big disappointment.
I bought this book at the dollar store thinking it was a Christmas cookie cookbook. I was happy to find I had bought a novel and even happier when I started reading it and discovered it was a good story. There are some sad parts, but that is how life is. The history of common ingredients was interesting, the stories of each member of the cookie club rich and very real. I was already planning on planning a cookie exchange before I bought this book and now I have some really good ideas. If you are interested in cooking and stories about strong, but flawed and realistic women, you will enjoy this book. I can't wait to try some of the recipes.
Really enjoyed listening to this cd. Makes you want to go out and start a Christmas cookie club just because of all the wonderful friendships. Very heart warming.
This book makes me want to start my own Christmas Cookie Club. Enjoyed it very much.
I really enjoyed this book! It had wonderful stories about the women in the cookie club that started with a couple of friends. It depicts real life stories that tug at your heartstrings. It also creatively gives cookie recipees you wouldnt easily find and incorporated the history of certain ingredients. I absolutely loved it!
