Thank you so much for this wonderful cookie book. I have been baking for my family for over 45 years and this cookie book is my favorite. I collect cook books as a hobby and where or how I come in to posession of this one I don't remember, but it was a luky day for me. At Christmas the girls and I have a cookies exchange and it is a real treat for us all. I have four girls or my own and five by my second marriage. We also have 14 grandchildren so you see there is a need for lots of cookies. I am hoping that is year I will be able to afford to buy each of the girls a copy of the book to include in the cookie exchange. Since I have retired it has given me great pleasures in baking from the book and just reading it over and over again. The illustrantions are great and it makes is so easy to follow the instructions. I have yet to be disappointed in any I have tried. There are many favoites so it is hard to single out one. The little ones love the no bake turkey cookie. It was a great hit at school and lots for fun to make with them. When all of the family is grown and gone out on their own, it is a great honor to be a grandma and have a loving family. You my want to know who I am, but I go by lots of names. Pops calls my Honey and the rest of the family has a special name they call me. I am known as Mom, Grandma, Aunt Mom, (that is another story) Grandma Marge, and Margie. The name isn't the important thing it is the love that comes from it and the happiness that is shared when we sit down at one of the times we share cookies and a favorite drink. Thanks again for this book has become part of our lives. P.S. Yes, by all means we do share lots of cookies with our friends.
