Christmas Cookie Recipes

I love to bake and the holidays are the only time I really do it because ... well, I also love to eat what I bake and if I baked all year long, well, you know...

My mom always called these cookies, Butter Nut Balls, and they get requested every year for parties from my friend Mercy (she puts on some wonderful parties throughout the year) and also by my family.



They are the easiest, but a bit time consuming, as you need to roll each cookie then after they are cooked roll them again in powered sugar. A great bake together project for kids to help with. They are so yummy with melt in your mouth sweetness.

Ingredients:

1/2 pound butter
4 tablespoons sugar
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 cup chopped nuts (I use pecans)

Roll into 3/4 - 1 inch balls. They expand so keep them on the smaller side.
Bake at 350 degree 15 - 18 minutes, depending on your oven.
Let them cool then roll in powered sugar. Be sure to let them cool so the sugar does not melt on them.

That's it. Enjoy. Easy Peasy.

Independence Day Giveaway & Winner Announced!

Dear Reader,
For those of you in the United States, Happy Independence Day! For all you other lovelies, happy day! Hope you all have a wonderful week. 
I will be relaxing on a pontoon boat with my husband and some good friends. I'm looking forward to that as one of my favorite songs by Little Big Town keep playing in my head.

Moving on. I have a few things to tell you. I know all you Immortal Hearts of San Francisco fans are patiently waiting for Gage's story, Protected by a Vampire. Well, I'm happy to say that I am working on it and even though I have always loved Gage in the other books, I'm loving him more and more each day. And getting to know him personally and intimately is one of my favorite things to do each morning. That's the time of day I like to write. I am also loving Ace, aka Acelyn. 
Every so often, I ask my fans for help with names for characters and placed in my books. I use my Author Facebook page to do this.
I recently conducted a poll on my Facebook Author page asking for strong female character names for Gage's love interest and the name Acelyn was recommended by Sherry Pierson. When I saw it, I instantly fell in love with it. She goes by Ace in the story and I will be crediting Sherry in the front matter of the book.
If you haven't liked my author page, yet and would like to be able to participate in polls like this, here is the link. https://www.facebook.com/SMGriscom. I also have giveaways there. 
I will be having a cover reveal for Protected by a Vampire sometime in the month of July. I haven't received the proof back from the cover designer yet, but I know it is coming soon. 
In the meantime, you can still download the newly revised and extended, Book 1, Tempted by a Vampire for FREE and start reading this sexy and steamy romance now!
Note: If you've already downloaded it before the revisions, you can update your copy through your Amazon Account in your "Manage My Content" section.

My recommended read this month is the Lost Centurion by Monica La Porta.  No one does sexy immortals like Monica. 
The chains of Love are stronger than the bonds of Revenge
The Roman centurion Marcus has sworn to avenge his wife's death—even if it takes an eternity to hunt down the vampire who murdered her. 
Turned immortal by a capricious god, for the last two thousand years, Marcus has been living a life devoid of love, consumed by his hatred for the vampire race. Until the night he rescues one of them, a frail newborn vampling, Diana, and she becomes his responsibility. 
Tortured by his past and hunted by vampires, Marcus must choose between avenging his dead wife or saving Diana from the same man who ruined his life, only to discover that not everything is what it appears to be.
