my thoughts:

Love, love, love!! I absolutely LOVED this cookbook! I am a huge fan of baking during the holiday season, so I was super thrilled to receive a copy of Holiday Cookies to review. I just knew that I was going to enjoy flipping through it and looking at all the wonderful photos of seriously delicious looking cookies. OMG - talk about cookie bliss!!  My mouth couldn't stop watering just thinking about how scrumptious these cookies must taste -  YUM!!  And the recipes - so many great ones to choose from.  There's Candy Cane Cookies, Apple Cider Caramels, Hungarian Kiffles, and Triple Chocolate Chunk Cookies.  And the Espresso Thins, Cinnamon-Sugar Palmiers, Hazelnut Sandwich Cookies...oh, and the Red Velvet Crackle Cookies.  I am already trying to figure out which recipes I want to use later this year.  I've tabbed up my copy of Holiday Cookies with possibilities, but I still keep looking through the book for more ideas. I just can't wait to start baking. 

Holiday Cookies by Elisabet der Nederlanden is a must-have for anyone who loves to bake.  I'm serious! This book has loads of recipes, tons of photos, and so many great tips - from decorating, packaging to storing your cookies.  Holiday Cookies has it all!!  I would definitely recommend this book to anyone and everyone who loves cookbooks - you are going to fall in love with this one! And you are going to want to start baking for the holidays ASAP.

I received this book from Blogging For Books for this review.
