My Thoughts: I know it isn’t even October yet but I’m so ready for the holidays! So of course when I was offered the chance to read Holiday Cookies in exchange for reviewing it, I said yes. To start with I was very impressed that it’s a hardcover book and the gorgeous photography. This photography continuous throughout and is just lovely. I found the instructions to be well thought out and clearly written, even for people new to the cooking world. The little bit of history is a nice touch and I think this book is great for use and display!
