Hey, friends! While my cookies are baking, I wanted to share a few thoughts on the Southern recipes in this book you are about to order. Many are family recipes that we’ve passed down through generations. These are recipes we love and I hope you will try. They are battle-tested by demanding cooks with high standards, so you know they’re good. Any recipe that becomes a tradition has got to be tasty, as well. Mostly, I hope you’ll feel a lot of love glowing in these pages.
