I realize that there are probably many answers to this question. I'm looking for something for my wife, who is the baker between us, for Christmas. Please, steer me in the right direction. Thanks.

RE: recipe: what is the dessert cookbook?

I don't know what kind of baking your wife likes to do. I'm a big cookie baker and here are some of the books I like to use. The Farm Journal also has a bread baking book that I like. For bread baking, I also like Beard on Bread.

I hope this helps.

2) Farm Journal Christmas Book, Kathryn Larson, Doubleday & Company, 1970
3) The French Cookie Book, by Bruce Healy and Paul Bugat, William Morrowand Company, Inc, NY, NY, 1994
4) Gooseberry Patch Old Fashioned Country Cookies, Gooseberry Patch Co., Delaware, Ohio, 1992

That's a great link. I love ordering from Jessica's Biscuit. I've never had a problem with them.
