[donotprint]While the holidays are quickly approaching, I’m still working through my Diane Mott Davidson novels and loving them! This week, I’m sharing a recipe from Chopping Spree, Davidson’s 11th novel, and I’m down to the last 20 pages and still don’t know who done it! I think I’m close to figuring it out, but I’m just not quite there. Davidson does such a great job of keeping the guilty party a secret, I love the anticipation of trying to solve the mystery!
So, in keeping with the upcoming holidays, the recipe options in this book were perfect. I chose to try the Spice-of-Life Cookies partially because of the spices integrated into the cookies, but also due to the time factor. I knew they would mix up relatively quickly and I didn’t have a whole lot of daylight left to take pictures. I did make a few modifications to the original recipe, mainly due to personal preference, but these cookies turned out wonderful!
If you are looking for a spicy, warm cookie fresh from the oven to finish a holiday platter, you’ve found the right recipe. Diane Mott Davidson’s Chopping Spree, is full of great recipes that I know you will love and I think several are perfect for the holidays![/donotprint]
