2 of 2 people found the following review helpful By Hannah Lily on 2 May 2011
Having bought this book based just on the looks I swiftly forgot about it, however I discovered it just under a week ago and have already made countless amounts of the recipes! I had never made biscuits before trying one of the more 'complex' biscuits first time round, I found the recipe so easy to follow and the results magnificent. Every recipe I've used has turned out as a complete hit, the cooking times for most are below 15 minutes so they're quick to make and when it says 'the only difficulty you'll have is choosing which cookies to bake!' on the blurb it is definitely telling the truth! The results are delicious, aesthetically brilliant and fun to make for even the most novice of bakers. There are instructions for how to do a lot of the techniques used at the beginning, a translation of American to English names for baking product at the back, lovely pictures and many similar ingredients are used in the recipes so you won't need to go out too much to the supermarket to buy vast packets of things you'll never use again as I find with a lot of recipes request! The hours I've spent just reading through the easy to follow recipes with no intention of baking anything just to fantasize about the brilliant creations have been blissfully spent, as have the time making them. I really cannot recommend this book enough.

This book is definetly worth five stars. It is full of wounderfull recipies, and most of them have brilliant pictures to go with them. The book itself is layed out in an easy to read way, and all the techniques used in the book are fully and clearly explaned at the front, so even the most novice of bakers can make wounderful cookies. Also, the book has a very loved sence to it, as it lookes old and has one of those ribbon book mark things.

I would definetly recomend this book to anyone, even thoses who have never baked before. There are so many recipies, you won't know what to make first. (I recommend the sour cream and raisin cookies.)

This is a fantastic little book that won't take up much space on your shelves but that you'll use again and again. There are some really quick and easy recipes like the Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (which is also easy to customise), to more complicatied fancy biscuits like Lemon Thins and (my favourite)Chocolate, Hazelnut and Vanilla Swirls. I don't normally like books that are just for one type of food but I've used this one lots. The recipes are really easy to follow and I've not been disapointed by any of the recipes I've tried so far. The recipes are given in both grams and cups. Would make an excellent stocking filler for Christmas.
