What's not to love about cookies? Searched for this book after a friend asked me to find a DVD series that Martha put together, and one of them was on cookies. Yum.

Excellent cookie book! The best part about this book is the index. There is a photo of each cookie within the index which saves you browsing throught the entire book. This makes it perfect for those who have no idea what they want to bake right away.
