    Merry Christmas Sally! I can’t thank you enough for your fabulous catalogue of recipes, which I consulted multiple times daily last week while I was in the midst of all my cookie baking! Today, I made the dough for the crisp chocolate chip cookies from your cookie book, which I will be bringing to a New Year’s party. I love your family photo! Best wishes to you, Kevin, Noelle, Jude, and Franklin for a happy and healthy New Year!
