The subject here is creating mini works of art -- the cookie recipe aspect is kept to a minimum because they are only here to serve as a foundation for the fondant ornamentation. There are exactly four cookie recipes in this book - Cookie Dough, Gingerbread Cookie Dough, Chocolate Cookie Dough and Chocolate Chip Shortbread Cookie Dough. They are located in the back of the book.
Included is a beautiful full color photograph of each cookie creation and detailed directions for decorating it on the page opposite the illustration. Obviously, the "how to decorate" part of the book takes center stage. I have no problem with the book emphasizing the art of decorating cookies rather than baking them, but fondant simply isn't tasty so, unlike other recent books that create both visually amazing cookies that are also delicious, this is all for show rather than consumption. As lovely as these cookies are, the effort to make them just seems wasteful and rather pointless. The expression "it is too pretty to eat" comes to mind.
