  1. Chocolate-chip-walnut-oatmeal – not gluten or dairy-free, but awfully good!

  2. So many cookies I have a hard time choosing a favorite. Maybe crisp lemon sugar cookies. I make chocolate chip oatmeal cookies that everyone else requests and they call them Jill Cookies. Would love to try some new recipes! Thanks!

  3. My favorite cookies are thumbprints

  4. Snickerdoodles! These have always been my favorite. A close second is oatmeal and I stumbled upon a vegan oatmeal cookie at Whole Foods the other day. YUMMY but at .99 cents a piece, I could use a recipe for make at home.

    I love all the recipes!
    Thanks a bunch!

  5. Chocolate chip!

  6. Oatmeal with raisin and nuts.
    I would love this cookbook.

  7. Chocolate chip are awesome! My family has easily tried 30 different gluten free, and more recently, dairy free recipes. And we are always on the lookout for healthy ones!!!

  8. I’ll second the chocolate and/or peanut butter ones, as well as any other cookie that crosses my path! Just out of the oven is the best way to enjoy any cookie – or so says my family! I’d like to be able to make cookies for my nephew with dairy allergies, so this cookbook is right up my alley!

  9. My favorite cookies are snickerdoodles.

  10. definately white chocolate chip cookies.

  11. Gingerbread men at Christmas time,, it really is a shame to only make them then,, but then again they are such a pain.. (of course when I make them I do like 6 or more batches…) =) but they are always totally worth it!.. *mouth waters* .. I want them now actually… Soft. Chewy. Mollassesy…. Dark. Delicious. With the most adorable faces you just can’t help but bite their heads right off !!!

  12. the german chocolate cake cookies sound awesome, would love to learn how to bake GF style, and this seems like a good start
