Rose Dunnington's new book The Year Of The Cookie is the perfect recipe book for any cookie lover, using every occasion as an excuse to bake cookies all year round.
The book will teach you all the basics you need, so that you can get started baking straight away. Throw a cookie party and celebrate with some Pecan Tassies, Sticky-Sweet Twigs & Berries, and some Chocolate Almond Biscotti. Find the perfect cookie for every occasion - spook up Halloween with some Ghostly Kisses and Pumpkin Puffs, or win over your date with a Peek-A-Boo Jelly Valentines cookie on February 14th.
There's a huge variety of cookies from different cultures and for every event, so cook up a treat in the kitchen and give yourself the perfect reason to celebrate.
Send love with a Peek-a-Boo Jelly Valentine and have a merry Christmas with a gingerbread man. Bake Arr-some Molasses Cookies for Talk Like a Pirate Day and a cake-sized cookie for a birthday bash. Sparkly Snowflakes will brighten the longest night of the year at Winter Solstice, while cardamom and cashew cookies are great for the Indian Festival of Lights. A handy basic-skills section, along with lots of how-to photos, helps even the newest bakers find success.
The Year of the Cookie is organized so kids can use it like a calendar, finding treats for any time of year, this year and every year. Plus, it’s a great way for them to learn all about different cultures around the world and their celebrations.
