Cookielicious ($19.95) by Janet K. Keeler, food editor at the St. Petersburg Times, arrived at my front door. While it doesn't help me whittle my waistline post-baby it has been fun trying out a few of the many recipes included in this cookie cookbook.
Filled with pretty and delicious photos, Cookielicious is a great gift for anyone who loves to bake and/or loves cookies. From the traditional chocolate chip to cookie bars it has over 150 recipes that just make you want to get baking! Each recipe doesn't just give a list of ingredients and how to make the cookie but whether or not it will freeze well for later consumption. I loved that! Included in this book are recipes for holiday cookies, dog cookies and easy recipes to make with kids. It's a really complete cookbook for cookie lovers.
I had great success making the Buckeye Bars as my first recipe. They tasted amazing and were a huge hit with my family. They were also fun to make with my daughter.
I love Cookielicious and think it makes a great gift for a baker or cookie lover.
