My family LOVES this book. Lots of variety and every recipe has turned out wonderfully. I've gotten one for each daughter and now one for my mom. We tell each other "try the one on page..." Lots of fun and home baked goodness. This isn't one of those cookie cookbooks where every cookie is just a chocolate chip cookie dressed differently. Every one I make, I just flatten out the entire batch of dough in the pan, and cook it a little longer. All turn out fine with half the work.
