My Review:
 The best part of the holidays is always the food. There is absolutely no doubt in my mind about that. So good eatin' is always in store for our family during this ti,e. Many times more often than not it is fun to get the cookbooks out and do some of the more intricate cooking and baking. Holiday Cookies is the perfect  book that helps you achieve all of those fancy cookies that you only see in magazines. Absolutely breathtaking images and treats.

 The author gives you tips and tricks to make the most beautiful treats you have ever seen. There are some pictures. I loved learning how to recreate some of the sweets I have seen others attempt and with this cookie book I think I may actually have a handle on the holiday baking trend. A great cookbook for gift giving, as well.

**Disclosure** This book was sent to me free of charge for my honest review from the author. All opinions are my own.
