Any time is cookie time, but around Christmas and other gift-giving times, cookies are more popular than ever. In this lovely book you ll find cookies that are nothing short of glamorous to look at and divine to eat. If you re looking for the ideal cookies for gifts for friends, picnics or colleagues, you ve come to the right book. Choose cookies that are not filled or topped with creamy mixtures, wrap them securely to exclude the air and to keep them fresh. Crisp buttery shortbread makes a great gift, not to mention an all-time favourite - chocolate-coated florentines.
