A new collection of delicious cookie recipes—all for a good cause

In 2007, Gretchen Holt-Witt set the lofty goal of baking and selling 96,000 cookies during the holidays, all in the name of funding research for pediatric cancer, the #1 killer of kids in the United States and the disease her young son was battling. Armed with the determination of a mom on a mission plus the knowledge that funds for research mean more treatment options, better survival rates, and hope for the future, Holt-Witt succeeded in selling all 96,000 cookies and raising over $400,000 for new pediatric cancer treatments.

Soon after, Gretchen and her husband Larry founded Cookies for Kids' Cancer (cookiesforkidscancer.org), a national nonprofit that inspires people to host bake sales of all sizes, from desktops and porches to entire corporations and communities, with some raising more than $100,000 in a day. Gretchen's first book, Cookies for Kids' Cancer Best Bake Sale Cookbook, raised thousands more for pediatric cancer research. All the Good Cookies gathers a mouthwatering collection of recipes that promise to satisfy any cookie craving, with the author's profits again going to the charity.

  • Features a wealth of cookie recipes, from Raspberry Thumbprints to Boston Cream Whoopie Pies
  • All of the author's royalties will benefit the charity Cookies for Kids' Cancer
  • A follow-up to the successful Cookies for Kids' Cancer Best Bake Sale Cookbook

For anyone who loves baking cookies and making a real difference in the world, Cookies for Kids' Cancer: All the Good Cookies is a perfect way to do both at the same time.

Haven't tried the recipes yet, but the cookbook is extremely well made, and it's such a wonderful tribute to Liam. I may just purchase some for Christmas gifts. Thank you.
