do not buy as an ebook
i haven't seen if this problem goes away if your looking at it on an actual computer screen instead of a nook, but i cant really find a cookbook useful if it calls for ? cup sugar, right? so maybe it's a nook error, but i wanted to put out a warning before anyone spent money on a worthless copy of a good cookbook.

This is a handy cookie book if you are vegan or have milk allergies or if you're baking cookies for someone who fits these requirements. I've tried several recipes from the book and have found that the recipes are functional.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

I rather like butter yet if baking for friends who have milk allergies, i will sometimes add some non-dairy butter flavor (if it's labeled kosher pareve, not kosher dairy, it's a good indication of being non-dairy containing, therefore no milk or milk products). When I've run short of "non-dairy milk", I've substituted Buttershots schnapps as it's buttery / butterscotch flavor pairs nicely in the cookies and adds that buttery note that I find missing.
Overall, I like the recipes and the flavors. The recipes work.
When I make these cookies, or from any recipe, I usually portion them out as if I will bake them but instead, I freeze them. Then I can give the unbaked dough as gift (frozen, of course) with instructions on how to bake them. Of the recipes in the book, faves include the Mexican Hot Chocolate Snickerdoodles (with or without the cinnamon / spicy stuff in the sugar), simple Snickerdoodles, a jam thumbrint (it's called something else, but it's a winner). I do recommend adding either butter flavor or Buttershots or a Butterscoth schnapps if you're missing the buttery note since many of the recipes use a vegan shortening.
