Holiday Cookies and Other Festive Treats – Linda Collister (2008, Ryland Peters & Small, London, New York)
If you’re planning to give cookies or other treats as gifts this holiday season (or hogging them all to yourself), this is the book for you. The photographs are beautiful, the layout is organized and clean, and the recipes are designed for home bakers and seem very accessible. Of course, I may not DECORATE the cookies as wonderfully as the photos show…I mean, if you get a box of cookies from me that look like they have big, strangely coloured icing blobs on them instead of delicate filigree stars or snowflakes, please don’t be offended – it’s not the fault of the author. It’s all me. But I’m sure they’ll still taste pretty darn good.
RECIPES I’M MAKING PRONTO: Swedish Pepper Cookies, Gingerbread Mini-Muffins, Chocolate Brioches, and Pistachio Sables. There’s also a recipe for a Cranberry and Basil Relish that looks like an absolute must-try.
Have fun baking!
