This is one of my top cookie cookbooks--I especially like the cherry ribbon cookies, which are a pain to make but are melt in your mouth delicious to eat. If you are making cookie platters as dessert options, this is an excellent cookbook, and lots of these cookies freeze beautifully

I found that this book had way to many repeat recipes for me. My biggest complaint is that the recipe titles are in a hard to read shade of yellow on a white page.
So far, so good on this one! Trying the Rugelach next!
Good pictures, unique cookies and interesting commentary!
