My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. The Baking Gems are the helpful tips that are include. I found this a wonderful thing to include in this book. The pictures of the cookies were beyond amazing. I want to try the peanut butter and jelly buttons. There were ginger snaps and shortbread that brings back a lot of memories growing up. There are some recipes that I wrote down to keep close at hand. There are some I had never heard that I want to try. This is adding to my baking experience. That is something I want to do each time I learn a new recipe.

My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
