What is Christmas without a houseful of cookies, cakes and pastries? Germans do this sort of thing with a special flair, and this new cookbook has more than 100 irresistible dessert recipes. How about a pear strudel on Christmas morning? Or a tray full of Orangenkugeln (orange balls) and Schokoladentrüffel (chocolate truffles) for carolers who drop by? There are also cakes, tarts, cookies, fruit bread and enough color photographs to make the book a fine gift for a friend who doesn’t mind putting on weight. (Chilton, $10.95)
