4.5/5⭐ Finally, an entire collection of truly easy recipes. Plus, they look delicious and use more nutritious ingredients than traditional desserts. I love how accessible the variations and options are to match whatever your personal stock pantry includes and whatever your personal tastes/dietary needs are. The author's notes about his experiments to get to the recipes he presents really set this book apart from the rest. Highly recommend.

Not my finest effort, but they‘ll be delicious all the same. I declare Christmas baking done! Now to finish wrapping. We‘re having our dinner with our girls tomorrow night because one of my girls is working Christmas Day. Family gathering with my sisters family on the actual day (small gathering because our folks have Covid). And a blizzard just to make things extra exciting.

AmyG Stay safe. Merry Christmas! 5mo

Here‘s a Baking Cookies Day photo! It was actually taken yesterday. Zoey, her Dad and I made M&M cookies at Great-Grandma Seiple‘s house. It was wild & crazy, but what a memory. #WinterReadathonDailyChallenge

Andrew65 Sounds yummy to me. 🍪🍪🍪 5mo

Well my holiday plans have had a bit of wrench thrown in them...I hurt my back a few day ago. 😫 I've been resting & trying to get back to normal function. Normally I do the holiday baking & cooking on my own, but my husband has been so wonderful & helping out with everything. Today I'm doing a bit better so we baked cookies together! We made sugar cookies & peanut butter heath. Maybe this will be a new tradition, w/o the injury though of course!

kspenmoll Hope your back continues to heal! 5mo
CoffeeNBooks I hope you feel better soon! 5mo

AmyG Great cookies. Made them as a kid. 5mo
Leftcoastzen Making cookies around the holidays is the best ! And with a cookbook that‘s been in the family, even better 5mo
MaureenMc My mom had this cookbook and made those two recipes every year (chocolate crinkles were the oldest brother‘s fave, & peanut butter the other brother‘s fave). 😊 5mo
LeahBergen Fun! I need to get to some cookies this week. 5mo
batsy Agree with @Leftcoastzen holiday season cookie baking is genuinely one of the pleasures of life 💕🍪 5mo

Appropriately, for Chocolate Covered Anything day, I've brought my favorite holiday candies to work! I am such a sucker for cordial cherries but this brand is secondary. Cella's chocolate cherries are the best and my Nana and I would demolish them!!

AmyG Agreed! 5mo
Andrew65 Sounds lovely 🍫🍫🍫 5mo

My favorite cake/cupcake is red velvet *with* cream cheese frosting. None of that whipped icing stuff, which I have, unfortunately, found on a red velvet cupcake once. Let me just tell you how wrong & utterly disappointing it was.

DieAReader I either would have cried or asked for a refund. If it can‘t be done properly, then don‘t do it at all. 5mo
Andrew65 Poor show by them. These look lovely. 🎄🎄🎄 5mo
