Aloha to THE SUGAR COOKIE SWEETHEART SWAP with Donna Kauffman, Kate Angell, and Kimberly Kincaid


The Girl Scouts in the neighborhood delivered the cookies I ordered.   I enjoy buying the thin mints ... but I enjoy making sugar cookies.   Enter the holiday anthology, THE SUGAR COOKIE SWEETHEART SWAP:

Where There's Smoke by Donna Kauffman

When flames from a recipe gone disastrously wrong send hunky fire-fighter Will Mason to pretty Clara Parker's rescue, the sparks really begin to fly! And once Will gets a taste of Clara, he aches for more than just a little sugar from the famously single food columnist...

The Gingerbread Man by Kate Angell

Folks have always told fun-loving Abby Denton that her anatomically correct Gingerbread cookies are...impressive. But those erotic cookies have nothing on the sexy stranger Abby saves from a snowy country road. Could Lander Reynolds be the Christmas treat she's truly been longing for?

Sugar And Spice by Kimberly Kincaid

When caterer Lily Callahan goes up against hotshot pastry chef Pete Mancuso in the bake-off of the season, the stakes are high - and scandalously passionate. Will the gorgeous gourmand steal Lily's heart - and the top prize in the Christmas cookie competition?

  9. My daughters and I make some every year we use icing and sprinkles and some are dusted with powder sugar. It's a great time of the year for it.

  10. Sprinkles look pretty but icing tastes better!

  11. My mother's sugar cookie recipe isn't that sweet since it's meant to be frosted. We would hang them on the tree when I was a kid.
