Reviews - What do customers think about Just Cookies Cookbook?
cookie book Mar 28, 2008
This book was very different than I was expecting and I'm rather disappointed. First of all it's tiny and I didn't find the cookie recipes appealing.
Many quick and easy cookie recipes. Jan 10, 2008
Christmas At Home Just Cookies by Cathy Marie Hake and Deborah Boone may be small in size, but it is big in taste and versatility. Within these pages are delicious recipes, and all the ingredients are right in your pantry. There are several eggless recipes. That is important to me; my little grandson is allergic to eggs, and it is hard to find recipes that do not call for eggs. Many of the recipes remind me of cookies my grandmother baked. Christmas At Home Just Cookies has something to suit everyone's taste buds. Several of the recipes are for cut out cookies. The authors share great ideas for decorating them. There is a recipe for Mason Jar Cookie Mix! What a great gift idea! I tried it and it is very tasty. Reviewed by Helen Boling for ReviewYourBook.com
Good basic recipes Oct 28, 2007
Clear instructions mean successful results. I have tried several already and look forward to adding some of these great creations to my standard Christmas cookie list. A great deal for less than $4.

If you are looking for a last-minute stocking stuffer or a small gift, the books in the "Christmas at Home" series are a sure bet. The "Just Cookies Cookbook" features an amazing array of cookie recipes that would be extremely suitable for holiday baking, but will definitely taste good during other seasons as well.
The book is divided into eight chapters, each of them more tempting than the next: Holiday Festives, Chocolate Decadence, Delicious Drop Cookies, Pretty to Decorate - Roll and Press Cookies, Bountiful Bars, Marvelous Meringues and Macaroons, Oh-So-Quick and Easy and Mason-Jar Cookie Mixes for Gift-Giving. With the recipes as diverse as Little White Mice, Secret Kiss Cookies, Aggression Cookies, Amnesia Cookies and Polka Dot Oatmeal cookies, you can bet you will find one for anybody on your Christmas list. The recipes come from a number of countries, among them Germany, Norway, Sweden, Italy, Scotland, Mexico and more. At least one of them dates back to 1880s.
All of the recipes that I've tried turned out well and they were easy-to-follow. As with any cookbook, I would have preferred to have photos of the finished cookies included to have as a reference and guide. I also would have liked to have an Index of the contents.
The recipes in this charming little book, "Just Cookies Cookbook," are interspersed with quotes about holidays and joy; and together with the cute, tiny format would truly make this a gift to bring joy to anybody who will receive it.
