This is a great book, especially for someone like me who is not that good in the kitchen. The introduction contains lots of helpful information about the equipment you will need, preparation, measuring accurately, mixing, testing to see if the biscuits are cooked properly and how to store your freshly baked biscuits (assuming they remain uneaten for more than five minutes).
At the back of the book there is a conversion chart for temperatures, liquid and dry measures, length and measuring cups. There are also some lovely ideas on how to present your biscuits if they are to be given as a gift.
The recipes themselves are very clear and easy to follow. Each one is accompanied by a photograph of the finished product, again showing some nice ideas for presentation. There are sections on plain biscuits, filled biscuits, macaroons, biscotti and slices with a good selection of treats in each.
Favourites at the moment are good old choc chip cookies and gingerbread, but I am quite looking forward to trying the rum ball slice and grandad wants some banana, caramel and date cookies. I haven't tried making biscotti before but the stained glass ones look so lovely I think that they might be next on my list to try.
Overall, a fantastic book that I would recommend to anyone who likes a taste of something sweet. I will definitely be looking out for other books in the range too.
