Recipe & Book with
Chrys Fey

Snow Ball Cookies

Ingredients: 1 Cup Soft Butter, 1/3 Cup Sugar, 1 Tablespoon Water, 1 Teaspoon Vanilla, 2 ¼ Cup Flour, ½ Cup Chopped Pecans


1. Combine all wet ingredients with the sugar.

2. Add flour and pecans. Mix Well.

3. Form 1-inch big balls and place on a cookie sheet. Note: Dough is thick.

4, Bake for 10-15 minutes at 325 degrees.

5. Cool then roll in powdered sugar.

An Internal Affairs Investigator was murdered and his brother, Donovan Goldwyn, was framed. Now Donovan is desperate to prove his innocence. And the one person who can do that is the woman who saved him from a deadly hurricane—Beth Kennedy. From the moment their fates intertwined, passion consumed him. He wants her in his arms. More, he wants her by his side in his darkest moments.
Beth Kennedy may not know everything about Donovan, but she can’t deny what she feels for him. It’s her love for him that pushes her to do whatever she has to do to help him get justice, including putting herself in a criminal’s crosshairs.
When a tip reveals the killer's location, they travel to California, but then an earthquake of catastrophic proportions separates them. As aftershocks roll the land, Beth and Donovan have to endure dangerous conditions while trying to find their way back to one another. Will they reunite and find the killer, or will they lose everything?

Warmth spread through him as he watched Beth exchange hugs with them.

“Oh, Beth, we’re so happy you came,” his mom said. “I brought cookies. They’re in the car.”

“I can never pass up cookies,” Beth said.

In the backseat of his mom’s van, she cracked open a red and gold tin canister. The aroma of the snowball cookies Donovan grew up eating wafted out and touched his nose. Beth selected a cookie on top, bit into it, and let out a content moan. “These cookies are delicious.”

“I’ll have to give you the recipe. They’re easy to make,” his mom said.

“That would be great. Thank you.”

Grandma turned in her seat and held out a thermos.

“Don’t forget the hot chocolate. It’s the real stuff, too, none of that instant crap from a package.”

Donovan took the thermos, unscrewed the cap, and gave it to Beth. She took a sip.

“Wow. Can I take the two of you home with me?”

Laughter filled the van.

Seeing Beth getting along so well with the two other women he loved brought up a surge of emotions he couldn’t tamp down. Didn’t want to tamp down. As it consumed him, he had the urge to show her how much she meant to him. And he didn’t care who saw it either.

Hey, Chrys! Love having you and the recipe is awesome. When I shared on another loop, a writer said she subbed almonds for the pecans. Either way sounds yummy.

Chrys Fey said...

@Vicki, I never heard of using almonds for this cookie. But I love almonds. :D Thank you so much for having me on your blog!

The cookies sound like the ones my mother-in-law makes! Yum! I've never been in a natural disaster. But I live in Michigan, the snow in May was about as bad as it gets!

Cookies and a great book! Thanks!!!

Chrys Fey said...

@Linda, I sure hope the wow-factor is high. ;)

@Barbara, I'm also glad I shared the recipe. Now you can make them again. :D

@Hebby, pecan balls. Yes, that's another name for them. I'm used to calling them snowballs because of the powdered sugar. :)

@Melissa, they are a pretty popular cookies, especially for the holidays. Snow in May? Yikes.

@Angela, you're welcome!
