I just ordered some new books through Amazon.

Bake Me I'm Yours... Cookie by Lindy Smith & The Cake Decorator's Motif Bible by Shelia Lampkin.

While on there, I happen to notice this listing : The Flour Pot Christmas Cookie Book: Creating Edible Works of Art for the Holidays (Hardcover) September 28, 2009. I've got their first book and plan to get this also.

icon_surprised.gificon_biggrin.gif Oh, yay! Thanks for the heads-up. Very cool!

I love "Bake Me I'm Yours ..." and I'm coveting the "Motif Bible." icon_razz.gif Let us know what you think!

I was disappointed in their first book. It's great for ideas, but you can get those pictures from their website. It didn't have any new information (recipes or techniques) that I couldn't get from other books I have.

It was make your cookies and cover with fondant. They didn't even give a recipe for homemade fondant. It's fine for ideas, but I paid hardcover price for it and it's only worth paperback money, IMHO.

Thanks for posting the info, though. Christmas cookies are my favorite so I will definitely give it a look. This is a good one: Christmas Cookies from the Whimsical Bakehouse by Liv Hansen and Kaye Hansen.

Awesome! I love Lindy Smith and I didn't know she had a cookie book out. Thanks for sharing!
