Disclaimer: I received this book free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.
I LOVE cookies. Cookies are kind of my thing, especially at Christmas. So I was very very excited to get the ARC for this recipe book.
It was just what I hoped for. Full of beautiful pictures of delicious looking cookies with clearly labeled sections and detailed instructions. This is an excellent recipe book. The only problem was which recipe should I try for this review?
This leads to my cookie confession, I am good at making cookies … except for chocolate chip. I have no idea what is going on, I’ve tried so many different recipes, followed instructions to the tee and they all come out bad. So I’ve given up. I only make chocolate chip cookies from the package now. Life it too short to waste time making bad food right?
With that in mind, I skipped the chocolate chip recipe and ended up choosing the Lemon cookies. They were soooooo good! Very tasty and full of bright flavor. They didn’t last very long in my cookie loving house.
The only caveat I have to the recipes in this book is that they tend to be a little labor intensive. Cook for a few minutes, go in and turn the pan, cook a couple more minutes and tap the pan on the rack, cook a few more minutes and tap again, then they are done. As a person with disabilites, this is more work than I am capable of. The good thing is that skipping those extra steps shouldn’t stop you from making the recipes, but it does change the look of the final product a little. So I can still make these sweet cookies without the extra work if I want.
All in all, this cookie book was excellent, and if you are looking to boost your holiday repertoire then look no further. Just in time right?!
