    I find Martha Stewart’s Cookies to be a good book as well. I will have to check out some of these, too.
    Have a great time in Ottawa!

    I wish I could have seen your tv segment, Dana … you’ll have to come to NYC and do one! How did it go? Thanks for the excellent links – I’m off to surf and decide which new cookies will be in my gift baskets this year. 🙂

    Thanks for the links! I’ve made three different different cookies today and I’m kippered ;-P…



  5. Great reference list. I love trying new cookies but have been told by family members to stick to the tried and true this year. Okay, but no one said anything about 2009…
