    Mmm, I asked for the Martha cookies book for Christmas!
    My sister in law got one and her sister had written notes in it, on the front page, about which ones were the best and who liked which ones the best.

    I have the Good Grips decorating kit and that thing is GOLD! It makes it so easy to get icing in the right place without wrestling a bag. Great recommendations – I think I need to add the cookie cookbook to my wishlist!

      Yes! Me too! It makes life so easy. My only complaint is I have to keep refilling it when I do bigger things like cupcakes — the worst! Maybe I need to invest in the bigger version for that!
