Who doesn't dream of strolling down a snowy 5th Avenue, ice-skating around the imposing Christmas tree outside the Rockerfeller Center and to cap it off, enjoying a delicious slice of pumpkin pie in one of the inviting cafes? with around 50 recipes for Blueberry Brownies, Maple Glazed Ham and an unforgettable cheesecake, as well as a host of lovely Christmas stories from the Big Apple, this cookbook allows you to share the dream of a White Christmas in your own kitchen. Also included in the book are three beautiful Christmas-themed stories, so you can read yourself into the spirit of Christmas Paul Auster s Auggie Wren's Christmas Story, The Gift of the Magi by O.Henry and Virginia O'Hanlon's Is There a Santa Claus. Each of the three stories has, in its own way, become part of popular Christmas folklore in the United States.
