So very many recipes. Ever since I received my copy of 400 Sensational Cookies, I've been busy experimenting and trying our new recipes. My house smells wonderful and I've got enough cookies here for an army for a month (or my family for a week or so). I got 400 Sensational Cookies to liven up my tired cookie baking. Yes, a classic chocolate cookie is great but can get a bit boring. This book does cover a lot of the classics, often with tasty variations. However, I was most interested in trying something new like Tropical Dreams, Cherry Almond Slices, Maple Leaf Cookies, Apple Walnut Cookies, etc. The best keeper I found was not a cookie recipe at all but one for brownies. Chocolate Fudge Brownies are possible the best brownies I have ever tasted. I highly suggest freezing these brownies in individual serving sizes so that you can grab one whenever craving hits. One warning though, they disappear very quickly, almost as if by magic. (Tami Brady TCM Reviews tcm-ca.com
