My thoughts: Every year we do a cookies swap at church, so I just had to pick this book up in anticipation for it! I love the variety of old favorites and new recipes that are bound to become favorites. I also like that there is a section for around the world cookies, which is a fun twist. Whether you want to figure out how your grandma's era enjoyed their cookies or you are looking for a modern spin on an old classic, this cookbook is a fun one to pick up!
I received this book from Blogging for Books in exchange for my honest review.
