I have a special treat for us today. (And I do mean "treat"!) Fellow Sweetest Romance Author Danielle Thorne is stopping by JDP NEWS on her 2010 Goodie Tour to share an easy Christmas recipe with us. Welcome to JDP NEWS, Danielle!
Happy Holidays, Joyce, to you and your readers! I'm really excited to be visiting with you on my 2010 Goodie Tour – I just know you will love these adorable Cheeseburger Cookies that were brought to one of my Cookie Exchanges years ago. They are cute, with a big "wow" factor! And yes, they won Best In Show.
I love sharing sweet treats to go with my sweet reads, so check out the easy recipe below. You won't be able to decide what's more fun, making them or eating them!
Keebler Grasshopper Cookies
Red, yellow and green icing in squeezable tubes
Directions: Add a drop of honey on to two Vanilla Wafers (Your buns). Sandwich a Keebler Grasshopper cookie in-between them, honey side down, to hold them together. (Your hamburger "patty.") Decorate the "patty" edges with small touches of frosting to represent ketchup/tomato, cheese and lettuce. Brush the top of the "cheeseburger" with honey and sprinkle on a few sesame seeds. Ta-da! You have an adorable, tasty, "cheeseburger" cookie.
In the photo, note that some of the cookies have been wrapped in donated cheeseburger wrappers, cut into fourths, from McDonald's. Talk about presentation!
Now, if you'd like a little get away this holiday season to go with your cool cookies, dive into BY HEART AND COMPASS and get your pirate fix! Or, check out my other sweet sea adventures and romances at: www.daniellethorne.jimdo.com!
BY HEART AND COMPASS
When Lacey Whitman buys a restored Victorian home, she never dreams discovering an antique diary will lead her back to sea and into the arms of the dive bum she’d rather forget. Her habit of living in the past comes to a screeching halt as diver Max Bertrand and the diary of his ancestor take Lacey on the quest of a lifetime: To discover and raise the privateer ship, Specter, and bring the treasure and legacy of a true hero home again. But will finding it cost her heart?
Aren't those "cheeseburgers" adorable? And so yummy sounding, too! Absolutely perfect for a non-baker like me. Thank you so much for joining us today, Danielle. Visit Danielle's website to find the links to the rest of her Goodie Tour for more delicious Christmas recipes!
