I love Mom's Big Book of Baking. It's a Lauren Chattman book, and I don't think I've made anything questionable from it. Claire and I decided to make a batch of Peanut Butter Thumbprints from the book; instead of filling them with jelly, we used chocolate stars and kisses.
The dough is extra peanutty: It uses natural peanut butter, for one thing, and also contains a cup of finely chopped salted peanuts. I especially liked the ones we made with dark-chocolate stars.
