This week, Dorie herself chose the last recipe, Thumbprints. Check out Dorie's blog for the complete recipe and a wonderful perspective on the Tuesdays with Dorie bakers.
When I started to write this post, I found myself writing only about Dorie and her book and how it has changed how I bake. I decided to save that for another post in a day or two. For now, let me just say that Dorie's is the most-used cookbook on my shelf, the one I always write in, the one that has given me the most pleasure, and the one that has brought me the most positive compliments about baking from family and friends. If anyone reading this post does not yet own Baking from My Home to Yours, you need to rush right out and buy it.

Thanks, Dorie, for encouraging me to be brave and experimental in my baking, and for standing beside me as I baked through all of the recipes. Like the aroma of cookies in the oven, your warm enthusiasm for the joy of baking continues to envelope not only many home bakers but also their family and friends who have had the pleasure to eat the terrific baked goods. Thank you!
