If you’ve ever wanted to make cookies but don’t know how or want to improve the way that you make cookies forever, this is the book for you.

Filled with easy-to-follow advice like Chapter 3: “Your Dough and Frosting: The Bare Essentials” and how to make specific colours of icing like baby yellow – “a couple of drops of Egg Yellow and a few drops of White,” you can start out being a novice and end up a cookie expert.

With colour charts, photo illustrations and fun shapes like horses and pigs on “Down on the Farm” (page 59) and little lavender footprints for “Aww… Baby” (p. 65), you might just find yourself looking for an excuse to make more cookies.

And for me, there is nothing better than spending a Sunday afternoon or evening after supper making cookies to take to your friends, neighbours and coworkers. Of course if you just want to eat ‘em all yourself, that’s okay too.
