Rum Raisin Shortbread
 
*Makes about 4 1/2 dozen*
 
This crumbly shortbread is studded with dried currants, which are tiny
raisins made from Zante grapes. The currants must be soaked overnight,
so you'll need to plan your craving a day in advance.
 
    * 1/2 cup dark rum
    * 1 cup currants
    * 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
    * 3/4 cup confectioners' sugar
    * 1/2 teaspoon finely grated orange zest
    * 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
    * 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    * 3/4 cup finely shredded unsweetened coconut
    * 1 teaspoon coarse salt
 
1. Combine rum and currants in an airtight container; let sit at room
temperature overnight. Drain; reserving 2 tablespoons rum.
 
2. Put butter, confectioners' sugar, and zest in the bowl of an electric
mixer fitted with the paddle attachment. Beat until creamy and smooth,
about 2 minutes. Add vanilla and reserved rum. Beat well, scraping down
the sides of the bowl as necessary. Reduce speed to low. Add flour,
coconut, and salt, and beat for 3 minutes. Stir in currants by hand.
Divide dough in half and form each into a log about 1/2 inches in
diameter; wrap in parchment, and refrigerate 1 hour (or up to 3 days).
 
3. Preheat oven to 325°F. Remove dough from parchment; slice into
1/4-inch-thick rounds. Place on parchment paper-lined baking sheets,
spacing about 1 inch apart. Bake until pale golden, about 20 minutes,
rotating sheets halfway through. Transfer to wire racks to cool
completely. Cookies can be stored in airtight containers at room
temperature up to 1 week.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pretty and Tasty May 4 2008
Format:Paperback
This book is dessert for the eye and the mouth. The table of contents is creatively designed to show you a picture of the cookie and it organizes them into cookie type. So far I have tried 7 different cookie types to great success and I plan to do more very soon. The instructions are easy to follow. The back of the cookbook has examples of useful tools, decorating materials and packaging ideas. Some of the cookies I have tried are the Chocolate Peanut Butter Swirl Brownies, the Chocolate Thumbprint and the Chocolate Pistachio cookies. Some of the cookies are easy and some are more difficult to prepare, but even if you only make a few (there are 175 recipes to try) it is well worth it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who doesn't love cookies? April 9 2009
Format:Paperback
I was pleasantly surprised when this book was delivered. I figured I might get 20 or so cookie recipes, but this whopping volume contains around 150 cookie recipes!

The cookies range from scrumptious drop cookies to very fancy cookies. There are plenty of flavours and types to satisfy all cookie cravings.

The book has a great picture overview at the beginning to allow for easy recipe picking. There is also a helpful list of tools at the back, with pictures, as well as tips for making the cookies as well as gift wrapping.

This is an indispensable cook book for the cookie lover!

5.0 out of 5 stars A really beautiful book March 19 2008
Format:Paperback
Martha's new book is gorgeous! A full colour picture accompanies every recipe, just daring you to make it. I find Martha's recipes work out very well. Of her cookie recipes, my favourites are : sugar cookies, jam thumbprints, classic chocolate chip and oatmeal raisin. The recipes are carefully tested and I think that you will be pleased with the results!

Just to see Martha Stewart's name on the front of the book and I am sold to it! I only made two recipes so far and been very pleased with the results. I first bought Martha Stewart Pies and Tarts cookbook recommended by a solid reference here in Québec, Ricardo Larrivée. He considers Martha as a prime reference to his liking cooking!! Do not hesitate and buy this book that you will probably use many times during the year.

5.0 out of 5 stars Yummy! Feb. 3 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The pictorial index was such an eye-catcher that I ordered 3 - one for each daughter-in-law and one for myself. I delivered one to my granddaughter (age 19 months) and her mother at the Little Gym after class. It started with me going through the index with Little Miss and ended with every adult eye in the place straining to see the pictures and a great deal of ooohing and ahhhing. If the cookies are half as tasty as they look on the pages, we have a real winner on our hands.
