#Sale for the DRAGON KNIGHTS

In celebration of my birthday month (and the four year anniversary with my fabulous editor), my publisher has put all five digital books of the Order of the Dragon Knights on sale for only .99cents! Now is the time to grab a copy of one you don't have in your collection. Even better, consider gifting one to a friend or family. Click on the link here:


And since I'm in a festive mood, I'm sharing a delicious cookie recipe. It's one of my husband's favorite!

Nut and Jam Cookies

1 cup butter, softened

1-8oz. package cream cheese, softened

2 cups sifted all-purpose flour

½ tsp baking powder

2 cups, pecans, chopped fine (or any other kind of nut you favor)

1-12oz. jar apricot or peach jam

2 teaspoons sugar

1/3 cup powdered sugar

Cream butter and cream cheese together. Sift flour and baking powder together. Add to creamed mixture. Chill 2-3 hours.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix nuts, jam, and sugar. Divide dough into four equal parts. Work with one quarter at a time. Keep remaining dough refrigerated.

Roll dough very thin on lightly floured board. Cut into 2-inch squares (or use a 2-inch round cookie cutter). Place on cookie sheet and fill with 1 teaspoon of nut mixture. Top with a 2-inch square and seal edges with a fork. Bake 15-20 minutes. Remove, cool, and sprinkle with powdered sugar.
