    Thousands of you spoke out on Facebook, punching "Like" and commenting on Brooke's amazing pink cookies article, making it clear that breast cancer impacts nearly everyone, and that nobody is more than a degree or two removed from this hot-button health issue of our times.

    While the idea was fab, the recipe for pink chocolate chip cookies left many frustrated. We can only guess that there is some difference in butters, powdered sugars or something else that is causing all the trouble.
