A pretty good selection with lots of easy German-American-style classics (as well as some non-holiday recipes and some "reduced-fat" options, which I have not tried, and probably won't). I bought this the year we forgot where we had stored Grandma's recipes the previous December -- and the resulting cookies, while not exactly the same, filled the bill. Worth the price for the Lebkuchen alone. I like the small format, too.

The only cookie I have made from this book (my bad) is the Pfeffernusse (peppernuts), and they were delicious! Their legend I found at www.stnicholascenter.org which is a wonderful site. I won't say what they are supposed to be, but the idea really appealed to my 10 year old grandson.
