This has been in my family for years. I love this book. It is my second one cause I wore out the first one. I just bought another one & gave to my daughter. I use it all the time. I highly recommend it.

Have worn out two of these books over the years - first a gift from my mom years ago, then aquired hers when she passed away. this is the best for variety and ease of use!! Wouldn't have Christmas without it!!!!

I have been using this book since I was a little boy helping my Grandmother bake for special occasions. The directions are straight forward, you do not need any special tools, and the cookies taste amazing. Now that I am older, I have purchased several of these to give as gifts. This is a must have for any cookie lover.

I have used the cookbook for close to 40 years and now my daughters use the newer printing of this 1963 classic. It is fun, full of terrific recipes, extra little tidbits of information, historical and cultural, making the baking and sharing of these goodies even more fun.

This is a great book, both for the experienced baker and also for the person just starting out. This is the second book like this that I have owned. The first was given to me back in the l950's when I was a young bride. I used it constantly and finally replaced it in 2009 because it was absolutely falling apart. It seems that the CreamWafer recipe is a favorite with several of my grandchildren and great-grands. I ship them as holiday gifts over a thousand miles to one grandaughter and her family, and finally I decided to send her the recipe and the cookie cutter so that she could make her own.....a little while later one of the COOKIE BOOKS followed. A great buy and wonderful book.

I am ecstatic to find this reprint. I have my mom's original 1963ed and it is truly worn out (it barely survived a flood). It is the only cookbook I use and the memories it brings back everytime I use it is priceless. You can't find better 'cooky' recipes anywhere. The Snickerdoodles are my favorite and everyone says I make the best chocolate chip cookies - they are better than tollhouse! A cookbook that starts traditions.

Thank you for carrying this release of the best cooky book of all times. I bought this book twentythree years ago and have loved every aspect of this book. Now I have three daughters-in-laws that want a copy. I have placed an order at one of your stores for six of these books. thanks again.

My mother had the original 1963 version of this book, I swiped it from her cookbook shelf when I left home in 1972, and I used it so much over the years that the covers fell off and half the pages fell out. I'm delighted to find that it's been reissued, and I can't wait to start baking my favorite cookies again.

It was a great pleasure to find the re-issue of this 1963 classic cookie book, my mother's go-to resource for all things cookie. Just seeing the cover brings back a flood of memories. I remember making decorated Christmas and Easter cookies, and Mom creating holiday gift boxes of dozens of assorted cookies from the book. I associate it with snickerdoodles, gingersnaps, peanut butter cookies, freezer cookies, cherry-filled heart cookies and butterscotch lace cookies. Most fun, I remember making storybook cookies from page 56, painting little Scottie dogs and funny cats with egg yolk paint. This cookbook is a sweet walk down memory lane.

This is the great grandmother of all cookie cookbooks. The receipes here are all of the basics that you are familiar with. Like the "Joy of Cooking" this is a great standard for any kitchen.

My mother gave me this book when i was young and i loved it so much! Unfortunately my older sister didn't take care of it, i thought i would never be able to see my book ever again! Now i have found my Betty Crocker Cooky Book and pass it down to my daughter! Thank you very much, Ms. Cooky Addict

I have one of the first Cooky Book by Betty Crocker. It is so old and has been used so much the front and back have fallen off of it. I have given each of my daughters one of these books and now have started giving them to my granddaughters. It is a wonderful book and a great gift. I pair it with cookie sheets. Cathy Andrew

My mother bought me this cookbook in 1983 right after I got married.  It is about to fall apart I have used it so often.  It is a wonderful basic cookie cookbook with all the old favorites.

I have my mother's (first issue) of this cooky book. It's falling apart from all the use it has gotten over the years We had our favorites and not so great favorites, . Although there were very few that we made we didn't like. A few of our favorites were Butter Horn Cookies,Chocolate-Coconut Candies and Ethel's Sugar Cookies. The sugar cookies are the best ever.

Given as a gift as we still use the one we got years ago - enough said!

This cookbook was our Christmas Baking Bible my whole life. The recipes have passed through generations and its not a holiday until I break it out. Ours is so worn and torn we can hardly read it, I am so glad I could find another copy!

This is a remake of the cookie book my great-grandmother used when I was a child. It brought back many memories of baking in the kitchen and gobbling up cookies while they were still warm. I have the original book with my grandmothers favorite cookies marked and some minor corrections she thought to make the cookies better. This year I will be giving the book to all my cousins who never had the fun of baking with grandma. There are some delicious cookies inside the book that I have not found anywhere else. A must have book for the cookie lover.

I make Christmas cookies for my son's teachers every year. This is a wonderful book to have if you want to bake a variety of cookies. The recipes are easy to follow and the cookies are fun to make.

I LOVE this cooky book! I used it just about every Saturday when I was growing up. My suggestions (and staples) are peanut butter cookies and chocolate chip. I've also given this book as a wedding present twice, with a great response.
