The 250 Best Cookie Recipes


Who doesn’t like cookies? I know I have to do a lot of baking for the kids schools (bake sales, Gameathon, Santa’s Workshop, etc.), and cookies also go over well. Plus cookies are great for coffee breaks, snacks, and desserts. In The 250 Best Cookie Recipes, there are over 250 cookie recipes to pick from. There is literally something for everyone in there. The majority of the recipes can be done by even the most novice baker. The recipes are also broken down, so they are easy to find: Drop Cookies, Hand Shaped Cookies, Sliced Cookies, Biscotti, Sandwich Cookies, No Bake Cookies, and Holiday Cookies. There are also helpful baking tips sprinkled throughout the book. The book even goes over the correct way to melt chocolate, storage methods, and even has a troubleshooting section!

I highly recommend The 250 Best Cookie Recipes!

Fans are asked to submit a photo capturing an everyday family celebration, plus a brief description (200 words or less) describing the moment and how the family experience made them feel.  What family doesn’t have great family memories in the kitchen.  Ten finalist photos and captions will be chosen and posted on for a nationwide online vote to help decide the winner beginning in Jan. 2012. The winner will also be invited to the ultimate hometown celebration for the Pillsbury Doughboy’s birthday this spring.
