Since its 1990 publication, Rose's Christmas Cookies has been a phenomenal success. Who can resist Chocolate-Dipped Melting Moments Cookies or moist Mini-Cheesecakes with Lemon Curd . . . or David Shamah's Jumbles, a fabulous cross between a chocolate-chip cookie and a chunky candy bar bursting with raisins, chocolate chips, and pecans. Whether you need a cookie to decorate your tree or grace your mantelpiece (cookies like Stained Glass or Christmas Wreaths), a sweet to send (Mahogany Butter Crunch Toffee, Maple Macadamia Bars), or a special holiday treat for your dinner party (Praline Truffle Cups, Chocolate-Pistachio Marzipan Spirals), you'll find that perfect something here. Complete with 60 cookie recipes and a color photograph of each cookie for handy reference, this easy-to-use and fun-to-read book will result in scrumptious, festive, and splendid-looking cookies every time.

Library Journal Review

Like Judy Knipe and Barbara Mark's The Christmas Cookie Book ( LJ 10/15/90), this features favorite holiday cookies of all kinds from the author of the authoritative The Cake Bible ( LJ 8/88). There are simple cookies to make with kids, fancy cookies for parties or gifts, beautiful cookies to hang on the tree, and, for the ambitious, a gingerbread cathedral complete with stained glass. Each recipe is accompanied by a full-page color photograph, and Beranbaum's instructions are as clear and detailed as ever--but most of these are fun and easy to make, as Christmas cookies should be. For all subject collections. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
