Gather the mixing bowls and get ready for fun! Rose Dunnington is back with the sixth in Lark’s cheerful, beautifully designed, best-selling cookbook series—and it’s cause for a celebration. Her newest wonderfully quirky collection offers a fantastic selection of cookie recipes, all in honor of holidays traditional, international, obscure, and (sometimes) deliciously absurd.
Send love with a Peek-a-Boo Jelly Valentine and have a merry Christmas with a gingerbread man. Bake Arr-some Molasses Cookies for Talk Like a Pirate Day and a cake-sized cookie for a birthday bash. Sparkly Snowflakes will brighten the longest night of the year at Winter Solstice, while cardamom and cashew cookies are great for the Indian Festival of Lights. A handy basic-skills section, along with lots of how-to photos, helps even the newest bakers find success.
The Year of the Cookie is organized so kids can use it like a calendar, finding treats for any time of year, this year and every year. Plus, it’s a great way for them to learn all about different cultures around the world and their celebrations.
