THE AUSTRALIAN WOMEN'S WEEKLY MACAROONS & BISCUITS

About the Book:

This is a compendium of all your favourite biscuits. It's the sort of book you'll refer to again and again, you'll teach your children how to make biscuits from it and they'll teach their children. T
here are recipes for plain biscuits, biscuits with creamy fillings, iced biscuits, slices and macaroons. Everything you expect to find is here: shortbread, chocolate chip cookies, melting moments, caramel slice, coconut slice, macaroons. As well there are features on especially easy-to-make biscuits such as no-bake biscuits and one-bowl biscuits. Each recipe is explained simply so even a beginner will have immediate success.

I have lots of different cookery books but this is definitely going to be a big favourite in my house! The pages are wonderfully glossy and every single recipe has a lovely colourful picture of the finished article.
