I recently purchased Linda Collister's EASY COOKIES for my teenage daughter's Christmas. It is a well-styled cookbook with beautiful photographs, and recipes that appear well-suited for cooks of all ages. Unfortunately, upon trying the recipe for gingerbread cookies, my daughter discovered that it did not work. I then tried the same recipe to discover that, indeed, it simply did not produce anything edible. I have not yet tried other recipes from the book. Having such results with the first recipe attempted, I hesitate to try others. The books title might be changed to EASY COOKIE RECIPES THAT MIGHT NOT WORK.
