Holiday Cookies by Elisabet der Nederlanden is a book that every baker is going to want to have in their kitchen this year. It's so nice when I can preview a book that I know all of you are going to like. Best believe that you will be pleased with this one the moment you get it!
The compilation of classic holiday cookies will have bakers everywhere reaching for their aprons and carefully measuring out flour, sugar, butter and spices, for baking year round. It's great to have "new" recipes to turn to during the holidays, especially when we want to gift homemade baked goods to friends, neighbors and family.
Elisabet cleverly divides her chapters with Very Merry Classics, Cookie Exchange Party ideas and suggestions, Warm Holiday Spice, baking from Around the World, classic Holiday Confections, and Decorated Delights. I'm already looking forward to baking some Icebox Pinwheel Cookies, Fruitcake Shortbread, Glazed Eggnog Madeleines, Hungarian Kiffles, Chocolate Caramels with Bourbon and Vanilla, and some Candy Cane Cookies. I can't wait for the aromas of spice to permeate my home in the coming months!
The ingredients, the step-by-step instructions, and the beautiful photography found throughout the pages of this book make it an instant classic. Keep in mind that the cookie and confection baking book published by Ten Speed Press is due to be released on September 5th. Order several copies today!
