This is an incredible cookie recipe book!
I have already tried three of the recipes :o)
They are scrumptious!
I suspect my family will be passing these down for generations to come.
Thank you, Mary Brown!

I loved just reading through the recipes from Grandma's Favorites as it reminded me not just of the cookies I made with my grandmother but also with one of my aunts. Being a grandmother myself I can't wait to begin using these recipes with my own grandkids!

Have used a few of these with great results, if you enjoy cookies this is a great book to have. Not for health food nuts, calls for real ingredients like butter and sugar not margrine and sweetner.

5.0 out of 5 stars So excited to try all of these recipes!!! June 3, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I'm so excited to try the recipes in this cookbook! I checked it out and I can tell a lot of the recipes are ones I used to make when I was growing up. It's hard to find old timey cookie recipes let alone all in one place. My family's going to be spoiled for a long time. Yummy!! Plus I just love the warmth that Mary brings to the cookbook making it feel like you are part of something special.

This is a great cookbook of cookie recipes from back in the early 1900s. What makes this a treasure is the author's pictures and the brief history about these recipes that came from her grandmother. I have been looking for a good Snickerdoodle recipe and this book has it.

Made a few gluten free versions, and while some need work others are easy as every ingredient can be gluten free if you buy it that way.

More About the Author

Mary Brown was born in 1964 in the small town of Roseville, Michigan. She grew up in a very large loving family under the tutelage of her mother and grandma. They taught her the importance of good food with plenty of flavor. Her family understood how important it was for them to stay together. Every year they held a family reunion at her Grandma Ruth's home.

There were generally over 100 people in attendance. This included many aunts, uncles, cousins, 2nd cousins, grandparents from many sides of the family. Mary's Grandma Ruth lived on a big 140 acre farm that has been in the family for over 125 years. This made the perfect place to hold the reunion. Everyone brought their favorite dishes for the pot luck dinners.

It was a tradition for each person that brought a dish to provide the recipe for their dish. As you can imagine there were many wonderful recipes being swapped each year. Of course they would have a vote for the best main course, best deserts as well as others. This made all of the women work hard though out the year to come up with something new and grand to bring.

This allowed Mary to grow up with a great love for cooking. Mary loves to bake for her family and her church. She is well known for her awesome deserts that she provides for the church bake sales every year. Mary strives to keep the old traditional recipes of her ancestors alive and has worked tirelessly with her mother to modernize them to reflect the today's baking. With better ovens and better choices of ingredients available today, these recipes have become easier and faster to prepare.

Mary has always cherished the wonderful memories of spending time in the kitchen with her grandma and mom baking for the family and wants to help other to make some great memories as well. Mary's driving force is the same as her mom and grandma before her, the love for her family and God. Mary has said many times how much she enjoys watching people taste the dishes she's prepared and then get a big smile on their face that say's umm good.
