Desert island cookie book.

An ambitious and impressive Christmas cookie guide. There is an impressive section on ingredients and substitutions. Indeed another chart shows the method to measure certain incredients and their ounce and grap equivalents of a cup.

All in all, I was looking for a good guide for nice holiday cookies and this was a bit more in-depth/extravagant than I wanted (this is saying a lot for me). What the heck does that mean to you, reader of this review?

If you are trying to raise the bar with your frie

A great collection of cookies, each one with it's own little story. The photos are lovely. The recipes are easy to follow. My favourite one has to be the gingerbread cathedral!

Do you need to know anything else?

Let's suppose, for the sake of argument, that you do: this is an excellent book, mostly of staple cookies, but also with some unusual delights to share ... including cookies for hanging on the tree, displaying on the mantel, and even one for the family dog. Rose's descriptions are warm and bright with all the love of the season, and her tips and tricks for cookies are excellent - since they explain why to use this technique or that, they can be applied t

I can be excessively critical about cookbooks, but even with my high standards, this is an exceptionally wonderful cookbook.

There isn't anything to dislike about it. It has a variety of recipes, and I've made the vast majority of them, at least once. There are a lot of photographs, so you have a good idea of what the end result should look like. There is enough "extra" material describing the recipes to keep it good reading too.

This is one of the "top two" cookie cookbooks in my world. The only

AGH. This is one of my favorite books ever, if only for sheer nostalgia's sake. Even if you don't intend on making any of the recipes (which you should- my mom makes Mahogany Crunch Toffee every Christmas, and it's amazing), the book is gorgeous: I can spend a good hour poring over its contents. The food styling and photography is vivid and beautiful, and the text is clean and attractive. It is charmingly written and features a lot of creative tips in the margins.
A great book to pass down, if y

I have made a couple dozen cookies from here, and I love how each cookie has a picture so that you know what you are shooting for--it is not my favorite cookie cookbook any more, but it is a classic--and the macadamia cookies are amongst the best!

One of my favorite cookbooks. Probably top 3. This is the best cookie recipe book I have ever read or used. I have made a majority of these cookies and every one of them has been a keeper.

You can't go wrong with Rose Levy Berenbaum. Her cookies are wonderful and get great reviews. Instructions are complete.

I have only tried a few recipes from this book. I use the shortbread cookie recipe almost every Christmas. But tried the wreaths one year and they were a total disaster.

Everything I've made from this book has been fabulous. My copy is falling apart. I can only hope it's still in print so I can get a new one!
