This tasty book brings cookie making into the 21st century with Espresso Thins, Apple Cider Caramels and Saffron Pistachio Biscotti. It also raises the bar on many traditional cookie classics, like shortbread and madeleines. How does Fruitcake Shortbread and Eggnog Madeleines sound?
Swedish born Elisabet der Nederlanden, begins with her ten rules of success for cookies. Rules that, to the annual ritual of holiday baking might sound intuitive, are anything but. This book has beautiful photographs, luscious recipes, and even directions on how to build a gingerbread house. There are also handy tips on storing packaging cookies and “adding flair” to your cookies – including a decorating technique called flooding. This may well be your go-to book for all-things cookie for seasons to come!
Now, for those of you who know me and know that cooking isn't my favorite pastime, there are two things I do enjoy. I love reading cookbooks (especially, if they have photographs) and once a year, around December, I like making cookies. Well, mostly I read recipes and then I try and find something that might be a little different and not too time-consuming. With this book, I think the holidays might start earlier, like say July 4th!
