The holidays are upon us, so my thoughts turn to baking!! We like to do plates of baked good for our neighbors during the holidays, so I’m always on the lookout for good cookies and baked goods to include. They need to be fairly easy to make, and preferably something my daughters can make on their own so I don’t have to do all the work. Many hands make light work!! My 15-year-old daughter loves to bake, so I turned this book over to her to see how it worked out. She is a beginner cook, and I wanted to see if these were good for beginners. Well, the book passed with flying colors!!
She started with the recipe for sugar cookies–a nice, basic cookie. They were everything a sugar cookie should be, and she went a step further making the icing and decorating them as well. They turned out great!
Next, my oldest daughter requested the Danish Butter Wreaths. My daughter that did the baking would be a sugar addict if I let her, and she wasn’t impressed with them. The rest of us couldn’t stop eating them!! They are seriously addicting with a nice, subtle flavor that keeps you reaching for another and another and…well, you get the picture. I’m pretty sure these will be on our gift plates this year!!
I’m very impressed with this book, and it has easily earned its place on my shelf. I know we’ll be reaching for it again and again over the years. Give it a try! Your family and friends will thank you!!
I received a copy of this book through the Blogging for Books program for my honest review. All thoughts an opinions are my own.
