This is a cute little book with lots of gorgeous, colorful photos and the recipes and direction to make these treats. The book does not, however, appear to be for beginners but rather for serious decorators. No Index and the Table of Contents only lists chapters not recipes.

I checked this book out prior to the Christmas season and did nothing with it. There are too many special items required to take on the simple task of cooking baking and decorating: cookie slats, pastry bags, decorating tips, paintbrushes, squeeze bottles, sanding sugars in varied colors, dragees in varied sizes and colors....and that's not ALL of it. You also need to produce a cookie that is perfect in shape and coloring, and then work with some adeptness at icing the final product. Way beyond ...more

I should have paid more attention to the title: Decorating Ideas.

You're basically given gingerbread or sugar cookies in different cut outs and how to decorate them. They are beautifully decorated. There's even a little "Easy" sticker on the easier ideas. If you're trying to decorate sugar cookies like a pro- it's worth checking out. For me, the recipes were subpar and I had no desire to do that much work for a cookie that'll last a couple of minutes.

Valerie Peterson's and Janice Fryer's Cookie Craft Christmas: Dozens of Decorating Ideas for a Sweet Holiday has a few simple recipes and decorating tips, but gives lots of ideas for Holiday's, Christmas's, and New Year's cookie designs. You might want to read Cookie Craft first, but it is not necessary because a lot of the recipes and decorating tips are repeated. As a regular cookbook, I would say "this was ok," but since it's specialty is Christmas, I "liked it." ...more

I didn't get this book from the library in time to actually try out any of the cookies for Christmas but the recipes look good and the cookies are pretty cute. It's definitely good eye candy for bakers and cookie lovers. ...more

Creative designs, pleasing layout -- nice incorporation of various cookie mediums, including food-coloring makers for handwriting techniques.

A few rolled cookie recipes, really about the decorating. Great ideas; fairly basic. Not so fancy so many can do at home.

Inspirational, if not for the faint of cookie decorating heart.
