Chewy Brown Sugar Cookies : page 62

Ginger Cookies : page 51

Love these! Great flavor and texture - a little spicy, chewy and crisp in all the right places, nice cracks and crannies, and no need to chill before baking. I made them largish and had to bake an extra minute or two for chewy cookie centers and crisp edges.

White Chocolate, Rosemary, and Apricot Cookies : page 122

I love these cookies! I used Trader Joe's Dried Blenheim Apricots which are nice and tangy, skimped a little on the Ghirardelli white chocolate chips and used Penzey's dried rosemary (tho recipe calls for fresh) and they came out wonderfully balanced. Flavor was great, texture was nice and chewy with crispy edges and they are even better after a few hours rest.
