Monday Giveaway: Golden Book of Baking

The title reminds me a Little Golden Book, but "The Golden Book of Baking" from Barron's is anything but little. It claims to have more 300 recipes, and I believe them. With gold-edged pages and a page-marker ribbon, it is an impressive collection.

This is a book for people who really love to bake: It doesn't have many tips or how-tos. What it has is recipes -- lots of recipes, for cookies, bars, brownies, small cakes, butter cakes, layer cakes, pies, pastries and yeast cakes. It also has a picture with each recipe.

OK, so how do you try for a copy? Post your name here in the comments section. Don't post your mailing address or personal e-mail, but if your sign-in is "Anonymous," you have to give me a name I can use to single you out. Deadline is Wednesday at noon. A winner will be chosen at random and announced Thursday morning.
