This is the only cookie book you will ever need. I have had mine for a long time and this was for a gift to my daughter who has a home of her own now. There are pictures to show you what the cookies look like. It is so popular I wore out my first book after 30 years and had to get a new one! If you want to make cookies, get this book. Old fashioned sour cream cookies are one of my favorites. PS. My only frustration came when I ordered the book and then was told I wouldn't get it until June. I actually received it May 5th or 6th. I ordered from another online vendor but will just give the extra book to my new daughter in law. Both books arrived within days of each other.
