5000 entries!

Never thought I’d be up to 5000 blog postings. The cookie recipes put me over the top. Wow! Time for more writing and Christmas/Hannukah/Yule/Jul/Winter Solstice cookies!

Reading – as in I’m doing one

Hey! If you are in the Long Beach area, Saturday December 3rd I will be reading at the Long Beach Womenspirit Faire. The Faire is all day at the Long Beach UU . I get to read right before the wonderful Wildwood Morris dancers after the belly dancing ritual by Kahena and her dancers.

I’m going to read “The Lonely Little Star” & its sequel with Bjorn the bear. And maybe the Littlest Druid Solstice story.

I’ll also have a few books for signing. Woohoo!

SALE!

Starting tomorrow night all three of my books on Kindle will be on sale for $2.99 in the United States. In other countries it will take a little longer. Sale is for one week.

Cookie – Pecan Cookies

Pecan Cookies

½ pound of butter
2 cups of flour, sifted
1 Teaspoon of vanilla
3 heaping kitchen tablespoons of powdered sugar
1 cup chopped pecans

Additional powdered sugar for rolling

Cover cookie sheets with foil or grease lightly
Mix thoroughly all ingredients except the nuts with electric mixer
Add pecans and shape into teaspoon size ovals
Bake at 325 degrees for 25 minutes or until set

Do not over bake! They should not be brown!

Roll in powdered sugar immediately when removed from oven. (And some if you wonder where I got my asbestos hands?)

Roll again when cool

Makes 3-5 dozen

Mom got this from her first voice teacher and you can use Chocolate chips instead of pecans.
When she packed them in the cookie tins she packed them in more powdered sugar under and between the layers.
