.@VickiBatman - on Food=Good, author Karilyn Bentley shares a special cookie recipe & a new book #MFRWorg #bakingchristmasgoodies

Plotting Princess, Karilyn Bentley, has a new release--Demon Lore!
And she's sharing a recipe, too for

Food = Good

Hi Vicki! Thank you so much for letting me be on your blog today to talk about my newest release, Demon Lore

'Tis the season for sweets and these cookies hold a special place in my heart. My friend's grandmother used to make them for us when I was a child. We'd go to visit and she would bake us these cookies as we'd play. When I got older, I asked for the recipe and she was kind enough to give it to me. To me, they taste more like molasses cookies than gingerbread ones, but I love molasses. And gingerbread. Okay, pretty much any sweet. <g>

Gingerbread Cookies by Mrs. Maggie W.

7 1/2 cups flour
1/2 + 1/8 cup Crisco
2 cups molasses
2/3 + 1/3 cup oil
3 eggs
2 1/2 tsp ginger
2 1/2 tsp cinnamon
7 1/2 tsp baking powder
Black raisins, candied cherries or almonds if wanted

Mix, chill at least 2 hours. Slightly flour board (to keep dough from sticking) and roll out dough. Cut and place on a slightly greased cookie sheet. I use a gingerbread man cutter. Bake at 250 for 5 to 7 minutes.


 Gin Crawford has enough problems dealing with her empath abilities. Finding out she's the world's newest demon-slayer is the last thing she needs. Unfortunately, when she slips on a mysterious bracelet she is given no other choice. On the plus side, her new gig comes with Tall, Dark and Handsome, a mage who may or may not have her best interests at heart. Thrust into a power-play between good and evil, Gin must choose a side before she becomes the next victim in the ongoing battle.
