New cookie books for Christmas - Page 2

post #16 of 17
My "Cookie Swap" just arrived in the mail and I also think it is an interesting book, but I do have reservations about it.

I love the imaginative display of the beautiful cookies. I enjoy doing tablescapes and can see using some of these ideas with my own cookie recipes. (I'd love to find that little barn lunchbox on pg. 9icon_cool.gif and the mini wedding cakes on pg. 78 are so cute! I can see them as mini birthday cakes, party favors, etc. And as beautiful as the rose cookies are on pg. 49, I would never mix them with fresh greenery. (I'm sure that's just creative license.) icon_smile.gif

That said, I'm glad I bought it. It has really stimulated my creativity whether I ever get around to making any of the recipes.

Where are my manners??!!

2009dreamit, I would like to apologize for not extending a CC welcome. You are new to this site and I jumped in and didn't even note that you were a newcomer. We are actually a very friendly bunch here in our little "cookie corner" of CC. You will find folks will go out of their way to answer questions and offer encouragement. Please don't hold my lack of grace against anyone here -- I'm usually a bit more amiable. icon_biggrin.gif


I do stand by my opinion of Cookie Swap. Never thought it was a bad book -- neither did Bob -- and we both bought and recommended it (with some reservations.) I'm glad you found it so very helpful.



icon_redface.gificon_redface.gif Honey I'm just as bad!! I did the same exact thing! icon_redface.gif I didn't even realize she was new! WELCOME to CC 2009dreamit!! (Better known as your new addiction!) icon_lol.gif I hope you didn't take exception to my views on Cookie Swap, they certainly weren't personal. Don't let that deter you from enjoying the vast wealth of information and sharing available here on CC. It's a great place to be! icon_biggrin.gif
