This book has some delicious recipes! Including (as you can see from the cover) a recipe for Whoopie Pies! I haven't made them yet, because I haven't had the time with school, and these cookies take a bit more time then I've had available.
But I did try the 'Cowboy Cookies' from Mario Batali, and I think they may be my new favorite cookie.
I also made the Almond Kipferl a recipe from Kurt Gutenbrunner. They were very simple to make and I had all of the ingredients in my house!
Look at them;
They're made with ground almonds so they have a really nice taste and crunch to them!
My other taste tester agreed
This is a great book to prepare for cookie swaps and Christmas parties! You'll impress them with Lemon Poppy Seed Linzers and Pumpkin Maple Walnut Cookies. With a book like this you'll be able to share (or not share) some of the best cookie recipes in New York with your family.
I can't wait to send a tin of these to school with Annabella for her teachers, they'll love a change from the usual sugar cookies!
The book retails for $30
