We’re pleased to have SAMANTHA STORM with us today and in the spirit of Thanksgiving and new and old recipes, she’s in the mood to bake. Ummmm, I smell peanut butter and hot coffee! Without wasting another moment, let’s join Cat in the Kitchen where she’s baking cookies and sharing secrets!
Thanks for having me! ;-)
I’ve been invited this year to a cookie party. Ever been to one? You invite a bunch of people to the party and each person brings 5 dozen cookies. You then go around and pick cookies of different varieties from everything brought to the party. Sounds like fun, at least I thought so when I agreed to go, but now I am wondering how long is it going to take to make 5 dozen cookies and what the hell kind of cookies should I bring? And to make my life more complicated I decided to make five different kinds of cookies. So far I have narrowed down the first three cookies. My husband is the Fire Chief, so I used the local fire dept guys and gals as my cookie testers. These were their favorites so far:
Peanut butter and jelly sandwich cookies- I use a basic peanut butter cookie recipe. I make the cookies small. I take one cookie and spread jelly on the bottom. I take another cookie and spread a thin layer of peanut butter on the top. And then I put them together and make a p and j cookie sandwich. Easy peasy ;-)
But I’m stumped on the last two kinds of cookies I should make. I figured since I was supposed to come and blog today I would get you guys to help me out with some suggestions. What is your favorite kind of cookie? And if you have a great Christmas cookie recipe feel free to share the recipe or paste in the link.
Let me throw in a giveaway. How about I pick one winner from everyone who joins in with a suggestion and that winner will get a copy of my e-book– Murder, Mayhem and Mistletoe, some hot chocolate, a pkg of my favorite cookies and some chocolate (A good kind of chocolate. I’m a bit of a chocolate snob.)
Now, for a peek at my book, Murder, Mayhem and Mistletoe:
Rating 3/5 “You need to suspend reality when reading this story because reality has no place here. What you get in this story is funny lines and quirky characters, like Theodora (Teddy) and her best friend Paula who imagine themselves as junior sleuths. Throw in a couple of hunks and some hot sex with strangers and you’ve got a fast paced read.” –Bookologist, Good Reads
MURDER, MAYHEM AND MISTLETOE by Samantha Storm
20,000 word Contemporary novella
Teddy Madison thought the office Christmas party would be a total drag when she was made the designated driver. All hope of another ill advised tangle with the hot guy from the mail room was out the window. She could only watch and laugh at the indiscretions of others as the office staff succumbed to another year of sexual tension.
But the party took an unexpected turn. Dark and mysterious strangers, murder and intrigue lead her and her zany friends down a wild and wacky path that could make this the most epic office party yet. Can the Champagne-guzzling gang figure out the mystery, or will Teddy celebrate New Year’s Eve in jail?
