BOOK REVIEW: CRAZY ABOUT COOKIES:300 SCRUMPTIOUS RECIPES FOR EVERY OCCASION & CRAVING
Publisher: STERLING PUBLISHING (USA)
Release Date: 2010
Bakers everywhere went crazy over Krystina Castella's Crazy About Cupcakes, and will go completely wild over these 300 clever cookie recipes. The baking phenomenon whips up delicious riffs on the classics and more adventurous offerings (like savory cornmeal olive cookies). There's something for every occasion, from melt-in-your-mouth after-school snacks to fun Christmas cookie constructions. A basics section on doughs, toppings and decoration techniques makes this the cookie foundation every creative foodie needs.
I loved this book. Krystina Castella has done a wonderful job in collating a brilliant collection of biscuit recipes.
The recipes are great if you have dietary problems such as diabetes or gluten intolerance this book is for you. Krystina has included many adapted recipes to cover your needs.
I made the Cinnamon Swirls and they were great, (too good actually as the family ate them all in a day).
An added extra to all the cookie recipes are the heaps of frostings, fillings and icings.
There are also recipes for different cultural celebrations as well. There are even different recipes for different ages groups, so something to keep all the family happy here.
An excellent cook book. Please buy it for your won eating pleasure and that of everyone you know.
