When she was growing up, my third daughter, Nancy, was the one who bounc­ed home from school shouting, “Let’s make cookies, Mom!” I think I frustrated her often by using the cookie jar for kitchen composting; maybe that’s why, even today as a busy businesswoman herself, she’d still rather bake cookies than just about any other activity I can think of. She began developing cookie recipes at a fairly young age. In her tearoom, she is known for her rich sweets.

The cookie recipes that follow are some of the Reppert family favorites. We hope that you enjoy them and keep your cookie jar full.
