Holiday Blog Hop #10: Skyhe Moncrief


***Warning: Chunks of Hunks precariously sprinkled throughout this eye-candy post. Proceed with caution to have a calorie-free-yet-highly-titillating experience with these tasty morsels! Snatch 'em while you can...

My favorite memories of Christmas are always associated with baking and making cookies. There's nothing like feeding people. ;) Everyone was always excited when I showed up with a load of unhealthy food! My favorites to make are decorated sugar cookies (shapes with ornate details), my secret rum fudge, and what I call homemade Mounds bars (that are really big coconut-pecan blobs covered in dark chocolate). Since my wrists went bad with carpal tunnel *sad face*, I can't make the sugar cookies anymore. But I found the best cookie recipe known to man. Man would know about it since my friends' husbands started saying they wanted to move in with me after eating one. Since the secret to a man's heart is through his stomach, here's how to lure your friend's husband over for a good old-fashioned affair OR how to steal one altogether! :) This recipe isn't just for the Christmas season. No. Use it all year. And it doesn't hurt to exercise a few weeks before deliving the goods dressed in a string bikini. Opt for a thong bottom. *wink*


***I've altered the recipe. Be certain to follow my exact instructions with the ingredients, or you won't be able to have an extra-marital affair or altogether steal your friend's husband!!! Seduction is key here. ;)

1 bag Hershey's SPECIAL DARK chocolate chips (no other chip will do & the recipe is on the back)

Buy to Substitute:
Dark brown sugar for Brown sugar
Butter-flavored Crisco bars for butter (or cookies will spread and turn into crispy wafers)

Mix Crisco, eggs, vanilla, white and dark brown sugar, and 1/4-1/3 cup molasses (depends on how much flavor you want in the cookies).  Add dry ingredients. Chocolate chips go in last. I don't do nuts. Why? The guys take care of the nuts. *wink* Bake according to the recipe's instructions. BUT do not allow the cookies to brown. When they are BARELY browning around the edge, remove cookie sheet from oven and allow the cookies to cool for 1-2 minutes. The dough may still appear slightly moist on top. But the heat from the cookie sheet continues to bake the cookies for 1 minute. I learned this working for THE GREAT AMERICAN CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIE COMPANY in college. :)

When done, wear seductive clothing and present the goods with a wicked smile. Ho Ho Ho! Merry Christmas!

And just in case you want more than my How-To-Have-A-Ho-Ho-Ho-Merry-Christmas tip, I'm sending out special cards for Christmas--ROMANCE TRADING CARDS. Just e-mail me at skhye@skhyemoncrief.com with your mailing addy. And I'll pop you some cards in the mail, while supplies last. I created my cards myself! So, I love to share them. I'm truly anything but narcissistic. And I don't have extra-marital affairs in my personality type. But I thought this the funniest way to look at a killer cookie recipe given my friend's husband gets mad when I make these cookies and his wife and kids eat them when visiting but he misses snack time! LOL Too funny!

Keep up with me and my carnal Futuristic-Paranormal Romantica or my spicy Time-Traveling Kilted Heroes at my website http://skhyemoncrief.com where you're guaranteed HEAs beyond this reality! with aliens, werewolves, vampires, psychics, ghosts, fairies, dragons, monsters, and more...

About Skhye Moncrief
Writing lured Skhye away from finishing her thesis in (bioarchaeology) anthropology. Aside from muscled men in fur, leather, denim, or kilts, she loves cultural ecology, cultural evolution, cultural relativism, and natural processes. Big ideas. Simple concepts that manifest in world building to crazy people like Skhye who studied anthropology and geology before turning to writing romantic fiction. Her rule of thumb is to love the good, the bad, and the ugly of every culture in her tales so every aspect of her stories resonates as real as possible.
