Pas Mal

Good description and nice pics, of course. Just try one recipe, it's chocolate chips cookies something...It's just too sweet for me, well, it's just a matter of taste, I might need to modify a bit to my tastebud. But the rest about the book is fine..Dont hesitate to buy!

beautiful book

So far the recipes I've tried have turned out great. I like that they aren't as cloyingly sweet as many cook recipes are. This is definitely a book I will keep handy near holidays, both to make the cookies as presents, and to make the biscuits and muffins for holiday dinners.

A great collection of favorites.

This is a beautiful coffee table style books with some very interesting baking ideas. While the title might be deceptive, this is not just a cookie book. Most of the treats are sweet, but there are also recipes for "Lavender Scones," "Dill Potato Cakes," and "Curried Crackers." It might take a lifetime to make all 200 recipes, so I recommend this book as a holiday treat book. The gingerbread Teddy Bears (complete with painted on pajamas) and Chocolate Nut Clusters have "Christmas Gifts" written all over them! While I have seem many Scottish Shortbread recipes, this is the first book which explained how to make them look very professional by shaping them in a mold. There is also a recipe for Lavender Heart Cookies which Jerry Traunfeld has also helped to make famous. Here and there you will find a bit of interesting information. "In folklore, lavender has always been linked with love, as has food, so make some heart-shaped cookies and serve them on Valentine's Day or any other romantic anniversary." "Coconut cookies are sold in Israeli street markets during Passover." There is also a lovely recipe for Ladyfingers which are used as the basis for Tiramisu. The book is worth the money for that recipe alone. ~The Rebecca Review


I recieved this book as a Christmas present from my mother last year, and right away was impressed with the detail that obviously went into making the book, all the directions are illustrated, in full color and are a great help. I have made about 3 types of cookies from this book so far and they all came out great!
