It’s a cookier’s dream, a world of sweet magic – Julia Usher’s recently released book, Ultimate Cookiesis filled with jaw-dropping, beautiful cookie creations. I’m sure you can tell from the cover alone, every page is an absolute delight!

I was happy to interview her, and am thrilled to be giving away a copy of her book to you! Not only will you have the chance to win the book, you’ll also have the chance to win Fancy Flours Boughs of Holly Wreath Kit Project. (More on the give-away below).

Julia is such an inspiration – Not only are her cookies meticulous, her explanations on how to make each project are as well – making Ultimate Cookies, in my humble opinion ;-), an absolute must-have resource for experienced and new decorators alike.

I mean, seriously, look at these gorgeous cookies! Not to mention the creative photography!

You can find Julia’s book on Amazonand visit her website at www.juliausher.com for more information.  Enjoy!
