Builder Guy took the book on all our trips this summer and made cookies with both of his grandmothers, and these classic gluten-free peanut butter cookies were his favorites. I was so proud of him. He read the recipes out loud and made sure he had all the ingredients, and then did most of the work himself while Grandma supervised. I stood off to the side taking pictures, reveling in the moments, and wishing I had done more cooking with my grandmothers.
