Staff Reviews

This has quickly become a staple in my "What should I bring to this potluck/event?" routine. Test-driven by several Flyleaf staffers, Saveur's cookie book is a font of wisdom on the basics and exotic recipes alike. Chocolate-dipped Florentines were do-able and delicious; basic sugar cookies stand up to your Mama's recipe. An affordable staple that doubles as a lovely gift for your favorite baker or foodie.
