Books That Cook: A Very Merry Christmas Cookbook
If you want to really impress your family and guests this holiday season, whip up some delectable dishes and desserts from Good Housekeeping’s “A Very Merry Christmas Cookbook” (Hearst Books, 1998, $5 at Kohl’s as part of its Kohl’s Cares cause merchandise program). You can learn to cook dishes like Crispy Citrus Goose or Pork Crown Roast with With Apple Stuffing. Soups, appetizers and side dishes vary from classics to twists on the traditional, like sweet potato and apple gratin. The main attraction of this book is the 38 pages of desserts and cookies. You can create an eye-appealing Austrian Drum Torte or learn to make Oven-Steamed Figgy Pudding. For kids, there’s a great idea for a children’s party making Little Cookie Houses and step-by-step instructions for building a fabulous Gingerbread Candyland Cottage.
