Editorial Reviews

"Wow. This book might even stop Martha Stewart in her tracks. The cookies are gorgeous and the level of detail is stunning. Instructions include drying time of icing, how to keep metal cookie cutters rust-free, a half-dozen Royal Icing recipes, color palette formulas, plus pages of templates. If cookies are your thing, this book is your lifeline." Minneapolis Star-Tribune  "If you've longed to make those perfectly iced cookies you see in bakeries and magazines, there's a new book that will get you from dough to done with minimal hassle.[A]nyone who wants to make beautiful cookies will find [Cookie Craft] jammed with ideas and advice."J.M. Hirsch, Associated Press "A must-have for this particularly driven subset of the baking crowd, by New Yorkers who write about food and have mastered pastry arts. The authors take an A-to-Z approach in planning, creating, storing and shipping decorated cookies." Washington Post "Word to the wise: Thumb through Cookie Craft after eating. Otherwise, the pages packed with sugary confections will turn you into an insatiable cubicle cookie monster. Those who like to get their hands doughy, regardless of skill level, can find a manageable project here." Washington Express "[The] cookies in this book whet the reader's appetite . . . its tone is one of a helpful friend rather than stern directives." ForeWord Magazine
