I really liked this book. The recipes are laid out clear and easy to read and on the the photos are high quality color- I like that because to see the cookie really helps me decide what to make! Every kind of cookie imaginable for every taste. All are very attractive and tasty looking. This is a great book for making cookies for gift giving, baking for the family or many could be adapted for gifts in a jar. This cookbook isn't just for Christmas but for year round baking too! A wonderful addition to any cookbook collection.
