In Holiday Cookies, baking queen Linda Collister provides lots of ideas for homemade gifts and edible decorations. Little Bakes look beautiful presented in a stylish box, so why not bake Triple Chocolate Cookies, Lebkuchen (the traditional German spiced cookies), or Lacy Brandy Sanps for a truly scrumptious present? And the Iced Star Cookies are the perfect decoration for the Christmas tree. Brownies, Bars, and Cakes make indulgent gifts. The Chocolate Brioches and incredible Truffles will satisfy even the sweetest tooth, or for something slightly fruitier, try the Lemon or Cider Fruit Squares. All of them are gorgeous alternatives to a commercial box of chocolates for a dinner-party host or simply for family. For those who are bigger fans of Savory Treats, bake a batch of Walnut Sables. If you've been invited to a drinks party and you want to come with more than a bottle of wine, bring some of your own Marinated Olives for that personal touch. Preserves scuh as Cranberry and Basil Relish are easy to make and create stunning gifts when presented in a pretty ribboned jar--give them away or keep them on your dinner table for a festive look. Even if you aren't a confident baker, Linda Collister's easy-to-follow recipes will get you making festive treats which are perfect either for serving at home or giving away to friends and family, whatever the occasion.
