READ THE BOOK, WEAR THE APRON! THE UNION STREET BAKERY GIVEAWAY

AtCornerKingStreet_280I’m so looking forward to AT THE CORNER OF KING STREET, my third Old Town Alexandria set novel, being published this coming Tuesday. And, since King Street and Union Street share a corner, it seems a perfect time to give away three copies of THE UNION STREET BAKERY. Oh… and three aprons for the winners to wear while trying out the back of book recipes — Sugar Cookies, Rachel’s Carrot Cake Cupcakes, Hennie’s Freedom Biscuits, and Mike’s Chocolate Espresso Torte. I hope you’ll enter to win one of these three prizes.

My Go-To Cookie

Chocolate Chip Cookies as You Like

Whenever I  make cookies for an event or just for the fun of it, I go to this recipe which I’ve used for years. The addition of the rum extract gives the chocolate an extra pop of flavor that I really enjoy. These are easy to make and I promise they’ll make you a superstar with the folks that try one.

1 cup of softened butter
½ cup sugar
1-1/4 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 egg yoke
1 teaspoon rum or rum extract
2-1/2 cups All Purpose Flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup large chocolate chips
1 cup small chocolate chips

Cream together the softened butter and sugars. Add the egg, egg yoke (it helps if they are room temperature) and the rum or rum extract. Sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Mix in chips. And if you would rather have nuts, swap out some of th chips. You can even add raisins or craisins. Scoop cookies onto a lined baking sheet and bake for 12-15 minutes.
