Betty Crocker's Cooky Book by Eric Mulvany

Holiday Cookbooks, November 2012

Though it is now offered in a spiral bound edition, many will recognize this title from their family cabinets. The decades old guide to cookies has everything from classic to creative, and international offerings for holiday treats. A timeline of decade cookie trends adds nostalgia and history. Cream wafers from this cookbook are legendary, though tastebuds will enjoy recipes from all sections of Drop, Bar, Refrigerator, Rolled, Pressed and Molded Cookies. Tips on Cookies for Children and Cookies That Will Travel are especially fun for the holidays, though there are suggested Christmas cookies as well.
