Book Review: Holiday Cookies


Holiday Cookies: Showstopping Recipes to Sweeten the Season is a delicious recipe book by Elisabet der Nederlanden.

This informative and helpful baking guidebook provides fifty recipes, such as Gingerbread Cookies, Red Velvet Crackle Cookies, Hazelnut Sandwich Cookies, Red-and-White Meringue Kisses, Espresso Thins, Glazed Eggnog Madeleines, Saffron Pisstachio BIscotti, Swedish Pepparkakor, Danish Butter Wreaths, Peppermint Bark, Bourbon and Maple Chocolate Truffles, Candy Cane Cookies, and Gingerbread House.

In addition to the Introduction, About This Book, Cookie Tips and Tricks, Decorating Cookies, Royal Icing, Packaging Tips and Tricks, and Storing Cookies, this book is divided into the following six main sections: Very Merry Classics, Cookie Exchange Party, Warm Holiday Spice, Around the World, Holiday Confections, and Decorated Delights.

While featuring brilliant full-color photographs, Holiday Cookies is geared towards various ages, from teenagers to older generations. Highly recommend this book for those interested in baking holiday sweets or even food photography.


Note: I received this book from NetGalley, which is a program designed for bloggers to write book reviews in exchange for books, yet the opinions expressed in this review are my own.
