Thursday Recipe and Blog Tour Announcement

April 1, 2010 at 8:43 pm 4 comments

Yep, it’s Thursday and that means recipe day. Now to decide what deliciousness to share…

Meanwhile, I have a blog tour scheduled next week. New author interview every day. Anyone who posts a comment is automatically entered in a contest to win a free ebook copy of my novel. If I get enough comments, I may add a real print copy to the pot. Or chocolate. How about a chocolate rat on a stick? (Our April Fools Day joke of the day was chocolate rats for school teachers.)

Here’s the schedule for my tour:

Monday April 5 – Trisha Wooldridge

Tuesday April 6 – Lynn Flewelling

Wednesday April 7 – Brenna Lyons

Thursday April 8 – Tracy Morris

Friday April 9 – Kaz Augustin

Saturday April 10 – Pauline Baird Jones

Great women and great authors! Check out their blogs and their books. Links will be posted with each interview.

Now for the recipe:

Easy and Quick Cookies

1 stick of butter, softened

2 eggs

1 box vanilla cake mix

Add-ins (1/2 c of any or all): white chocolate chips, chocolate chips, craisins, macadamia nuts, shredded coconut, dried cherries, dried blueberries, chopped almonds, chopped pecans

Mix together. Add whatever add-ins you want. Dough will be sticky. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets. Bake at 375° for 9 – 12 minutes, until set. Let cool on sheet. Makes about 3 – 4 dozen.

    😀 Thanks for organizing the whole blog tour, Jaleta!! And those sound delicious! I may have to make some for Easter… I never thought of using cake mix for cookies. What’s the texture like?

    You’re welcome. The cookies come out soft and chewy. You can use any cake mix flavor. My kids love ones made with devil’s food mix.

    Those cookies sound great, though they’d have to be with butter! LOL! I never make cookies w/o butter anymore. They are just less and I figure if I’m going out, want to go out eating butter. (vbg)

    thanks for the great blog tour and organizing it!

    I only use real butter anymore, too many food allergy problems with margarines. Besides, it really does taste better with butter. I’m totally with Paula Dean on that one, although I use a lot less of it than she does.
