Day 19 Holiday Event Cookie Swap Book

DAY 19
HOLIDAY SHOPPING EVENT
PART 1
COOKIE SWAP BOOK
Hey everyone, I recently received a really nice box of books from a Publishing Company to include in my Holiday Event. I will not be able to get them all in because I have so many items left still:) I know, more for you all, but there is just not enough time!

This book is called the Cookie Swap. Totally in time for the Holidays. How many cookies do you bake over the Holidays? We love to bake in our house and especially around the Holidays we do a lot of baking. And what better to bake than cookies! They are small, easy to package nicely and there are lots of variations and types! So, when I received this in the mail I very happy to review it.

The first thing I like is the size. Nice and compact with lots of color pictures. Sure we don't need pictures to bake something but it has a lot of appeal to see what you are baking. There are several recipes in here that I think are going to be keepers. Cookies that will be baked for a long time. Pages that will become floury and messy from use:) Do you get the idea?

They have the normal cookies you expect in a Cookie Cookbook, but there are also lots of other neat recipes. We all love Chocolate Chip Cookies which no cookbook would be complete without but another one I really liked the sound of was the Chocolate Mint Sandwich Cookies. This combines chocolate and mint! What more could you ask for? You seriously bake a peppermint patty in the cookie:) Yum!

Now, I also like that they tell you what can be frozen or made ahead of time. This is a big deal for me because often when you have time to bake, you want to save some for later. It is nice to be able to put the dough in the freezer, or the cookies, and then still have them turn out good when you defrost them. The other thing I liked is the drink section at the back. Yep, there are drink recipes for Iced Coffee, Cider, etc. Very nice and a perfect accompaniment to many of these cookies.

Overall, this book is a wonderful cookbook. I love the pictures, easy to follow recipes and the way it is done. Would make a perfect gift over the Holidays or even before hand so they have time to make some of these delicious recipes.

Yum!! I love butter cookies. We call them Spritz. It's difficult to get them just right. I hate them too brown on the bottom. kristiedonelson(at)gmail(dot)com

my favorite cookies to make this time of year are "Italian
Sprinkle Cookies". omg, they are out of this world!

mistyls said...

think i'll go a completely different route (rather than scrapbooking). i've always been interested in terrariums, but have never been able to keep them alive. i would love to have "terrarium craft". hopefully, i could learn a few lessons, lol! :)
