Review: 30 Delicious Icebox Cookie Recipes

30 Delicious Icebox Cookie Recipes 30 Delicious Icebox Cookie Recipes by Lori Burke
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

When my kids were little I used icebox cookies. I could make them and freeze for later but I had only three. Vanilla, Sugar and chocolate to use. But this book has 30 wonderful easy to use recipes to choose from. Too bad I am older now. If I made these I would have to eat them. Lol. Loved the recipes.

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

A very short basic book with lots of information. There is a longer one out, so if you just want a quick course on knitting this book is great and its for a kindle. If you want more information get the other one.
