All the mouthwatering recipes are clear and easy to understand with the ingredient measures in both cups and grams.
This delicious book is highly recommended by me and my family - especially the Chocolate Chip Cookies!
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.
I have made two recipes from this book - the lemon meriangue kisses and the honey macaroons - never even attempted either of these before and by the lack of crumbs remaining I would say my attempts were very successful.
Excellent variety from the everyday biccie to something that would not be out of place with coffee after a formal dinner - a five star book.
Having a sweet toothed family, I was looking forward to getting this book and I was not dissappointed.
As with all AWW books, the presentation is excellent: Clear, easy to understand recipes with lovely glossy photographs.
After a brief introduction, the book is split into chapters that cover Plain Biscuits, Filled Biscuits, Macaroons, Biscotti and Slices. At the end there is a useful glossary and conversion chart.
Favourites so far have been Mandarin Polenta Biscuits, Lime & Ginger Kisses and Apple, Cranberry & White Chocolate Biscotti - the biscotti is so much nicer than shop bought varieties.
If you have a family who loves biscuits (and who doesn't!), this will be perfect for you. It would also be ideal for making up some home-baked gifts for christmas - a real personal treat!
