The 1st American Cookie Lady is based on the 76-page, handwritten cookie diary of Anna "Cookie" Covington, who recorded 208 different cookie recipes between 1917 and 1920. Intended as a gift for one of her children, it's a mystery why her cookie diary was never used and eventually fell into the hands of one very grateful Barbara Swell. Barbara presents Anna's recipes exactly as they appear in the original diary and also adds helpful tips and hints on baking, updates for many of the recipes, fun cookie poems, baking superstitions, and over 150 photographs and illustrations. Learn to bake cookies such as snickerdoodles, fig bars, rosemary shortbreads, coconut jumbles, and many more!
